President Donald Trump threatened Friday to cut off aid and slap sanctions on countries that refuse to accept nationals the U.S. tries to deport.
Trump said during a briefing with Department of Homeland Security officials at the Customs and Border Protection National Targeting Center in Virginia that he knows how to change the trend.
If they dont take em back, well put sanctions on the countries, well put tariffs on the countries, Trump said. He added: Theyll take em back so fast your head would spin.
Hes also threatened to cut off aid to the countries, which include China and Sierra Leone.
Separately, Trump also threatened to cut off aid to counties that produce illegal drugs, saying theyre not our friends.

Racis’, mean spirited. See how that works.
I suppose the Traitors at the DNC/Media will say this is a bad thing...
It’s probably more humane than sendind them back by parachute.
Damn, I love this man and pray for his safety every day.
Why do we give aid to China?
Just flyover the country and drop them off with a parachute
Does ANY country give us aid? Even if they did, government would steal it and raise our taxes.
Why indeed. Probably due to their clinging to that “developing country” status and other crooked Democratic/RINO deals.
Love to see it happen. Get on with it.
Leverage. You’ve got to be able to identify it and be willing and able to use it.
During the campaign, Trump criticized 0bama and Clinton for not sending people back when the countries refused to take them. There are laws in place right now that allows the US to impose visa rejections on countries that don’t take them back. We should already be doing that right now, no need to wait for any more authorizations or laws.
The law already allows us to stop issuing visas to the nationals of those countries who refuse to take their criminals back.
Don’t threaten. Just do it.
That’s a very good point. Did any other country send money to us when we experienced a disaster? Why does the USA have to pay every time another nation has a disaster? And they still show no respect for the USA at all. Cut the aid.
Now why in the world wasn’t this the standard response? How is it justifiable to not have this as a standard response??
