On Monday, a lawmaker in the Philippines filed a resolution that seeks to permanently ban the Republican presidential candidate from entering the country!
This legislation comes on the heels of Trump’s campaign speech last week in which he named the Southeast Asian country as one of the “terrorist nations.”
During a rally in Portland, Maine, the 70-year-old once again spread the fear-injecting bread and butter of his campaign with yet another swipe on how immigrants were plotting to kill Americans.
Trump said countries sending such people were the Philippines, Somalia, Syria, Morocco, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Yemen, adding:
“We’re letting people come in from terrorist nations that shouldn’t be allowed because you can’t vet them. There’s no way of vetting them. You have no idea who they are. This could be the great Trojan horse of all time.”
After the Thursday speech, Filipino Congressman Joey Sarte Salceda filed a resolution in Manila’s House of Representatives, which reads:
“There is no feasible basis or reasonable justification to the wholesale labeling of Filipinos as coming from a ├óΓé¼╦£terrorist state’ or they will be a Trojan horse. This comes from a long line of pronouncements where he has demonstrated an unrepentantly negative, dysfunctionally nativist, aggressively adversarial attitude towards immigrants in the U.S. where he aspires to be the leader.”
There are nearly 4 million people of Filipino descent living in the U.S., who form the second largest population of Asian Americans in the country.
So it looks like Trump is doing a great job of alienating yet another culture just to feed the hate of
the Hitler Youth his supporters.
