Amateur president Donald Trump held another ego-rally on Wednesday even though he’s been in office for 153 days. The former reality show star talked down to his supporters as they cheered him on. He explained why he hired billionaire private-equity investor Wilbur Ross to be his Commerce secretary, saying, “I just don’t want a poor person” in a top economics role. The alleged president moved on to suggest creating a law which has existed in this country since 1996.
Trump said that immigrants who enter the U.S. should not be eligible for welfare benefits for five years, but that law has been in place for 20 years now.
“The time has come for new immigration rules which say that those seeking admission into our country must be able to support themselves financially and should not use welfare for a period of at least five years,” Trump told his crowd of supporters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Trump told the gullible crowd that his administration would be “putting in legislation to that effect very shortly.”
But the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act was passed during former President Bill Clinton’s time in office.
Stuff to know:
In 1789, George Washington, the first President of the U.S., tapped his former aide to be first Secretary of the Treasury. That man, Alexander Hamilton, grew up poor and he was an immigrant from the Caribbean island of Nevis. Hamilton’s image is on our $10 bill. But, according to Trump, Hamilton, who was an author of the Federalist Papers, would be too poor to be chosen for his administration. Because, according to what Trump suggested, only rich people are smart. People like Trump, who has still failed to reveal his tax returns. The rest of us are dumb mother f*ckers. Still, his own supporters cheered him on while he fed his ego. Trump also raged about the media’s coverage of his ‘presidency’ during his rally.
