At a campaign rally in Florida, where a discussion about illegal immigration took place, Trump mused about what could be done if his wall isn’t built. The response from a supporter? “Shoot them!”
And while the President could have denounced and decried such a comment, he didn’t. Instead, he chuckled. “That's only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement," the President then said with a smile, as the crowd erupted into laughter. "Only in the Panhandle!" The campaign has yet to comment.
- Also at the event, Trump said he’s still planning on raising tariffs against Chinese goods this week unless they come to a deal by tomorrow. Trump said a top Chinese official is en route to Washington in an effort to seal a deal. Trump announced earlier this week he would raise tariffs on $200-billion of Chinese imports from 10% to 2%. This move caused quite uncertainty and major losses to the DOW this week.
