President Donald Trump indicated Monday he has no interest in allowing people into the United States if they are on welfare or need it.

Trump made the remarks during a White House interview with Breitbart News. He said Democrats are partly to blame for the nation's immigration problems because they think immigrants will vote for them.

"I don't want to have anyone coming in that's on welfare," Trump said in the Oval Office. "We have a problem, because we have politicians that are not strong, or they have bad intentions, or they want to get votes, because they think if they come in they're going to vote Democrat, you know, for the most part."

Trump added, because of America's debts to other countries and spending on the military and alliances, the U.S. cannot keep adding more welfare recipients.

"I don't want people that need welfare," he said. "We owe a lot of money. We're taking care of everybody in the world's military. But now, as you know, I got over $100 billion from NATO countries. But that's not enough, that's not enough, we're paying for massive portions of NATO."

The White House budget for 2020 unveiled Monday includes $8.6 billion for additional barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.
