President Donald Trump predicts that Democratic calls to eliminate Immigration and Customs Enforcement will doom the party with voters, ensuring “they will never win another election.”
In an interview aired on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo,” Trump praised ICE agents and the Border Patrol as “incredible patriots.”
“I hope they keep thinking of that,” he said in an interview aired a day after massive immigration policy demonstrations around the country. “They are going to get beaten so badly.”
“These are the guys that go in and take MS-13 and they take them out,” he said. And without them, he asserted, “You will be afraid to walk out of your house. You are going to have a country that's crime-ridden.”
“If the Democrats go left, okay, if they do that, like I always say, [California Democratic Rep.] Maxine Waters is their new leader, between Maxine Waters and [California Democratic Rep.] Nancy Pelosi and getting rid of ICE and having open borders… all it's going to do is lead to massive, massive crime. That's going to be their platform… I think they will never win another election, so I'm actually quite happy about it.”
Trump also touted a “phase 2 tax cut” that he wants to be passed in the fall.
“We did a lot for the middle class but this will be more aimed at the middle class,” he said of the next phase of his tax cut plans. “We're thinking about bringing the [corporate tax rate of] 21 percent down to 20 [percent]. For the most part the rest of it would go to the middle class. It is a great stimulus.”
