I have no clue why you think left-wing talking points = a Trump campaign speech. It completely defies logic and exposes a very clear lack of critical thinking skills.
He brings it up at every campaign speech, and even exaggerates the numbers, saying the immigrants cost $200 billion a year and put a strain on social services.

The cost, and strain on social services are most often repeated right-wing talking points about illegal immigration.

How can you not know this?

You are getting desperate.

Heck, feel free to believe anything you want.

Antifa are loud and nasty, but your right wing terrorists are flat out deadly.

The bolded is a crime whether you like or count it or not.

This is the same code AOC was schooled on by the that former ICE director a few weeks ago.

Beto has cemented the standard for being a cast iron idiot.

Pure BS. Post links of Trump...

...bemoaning the assertion that the influx of millions of financially dependent migrants will make it harder to achieve the ambitious social projects of universal health care and UBI.

...bemoaning the assertion that "Corporations are heading the destruction of our environment by shamelessly overharvesting resources."

Iím pretty sure the worst mass shooting in history was under Obama

Iím also pretty sure south side Chicago is a war zone and Obamas former constiuents are under the constant threat of being shot.

If Trump is responsible for mass shootings then so is Obama
