Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made quick work of a heckler at his sold out rally in New Hampshire. Appearing rather comfortable taking questions from the crowd, Trump followed his speech with an open mic session.
“I’m from Southern California,” began one woman. Trump interrupted her and crassly asked, “You live in Southern California. What are you doing here?” The Trump rally was being held in New Hampshire. “Are you a liberal democrat by any chance?” Trump questioned. The next question was momentarily inaudible but seemed to reference illegal immigrants. The volume came up and she continued, “They do work that no one else wants to do and for a lot less.”
Trump got a little help from other audience members but he stopped them by saying, “We don’t need help with these kinds of people.”
“Oh, illegal immigrants are the backbone of our country?” Trump, in a sarcastic tone stated, “I don’t think so, darling … They’re not the backbone,” Trump concluded.
Trump then countered the woman’s contention by saying, “You know what the backbone of our country [is]? People that came here, and they came here legally. People that came here to this country legally, and they worked their ass off, and they made this country great. That’s the backbone.” The crowd broke out in applause to Trump’s comments.
One of Donald Trump’s campaign benchmark promises is to build a border wall between the United States and Mexico to stop what he says is the flow of illegal immigrants, drugs, crime, and to prevent the security threat the porous border causes.
