Trump defends tweeting video about immigration
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is defending his decision to tweet a video warning of people crossing into the U.S. illegally that both Democrats and Republicans have called "racist."
Trump says, "They gave me a hard time" about the video featuring a Mexican migrant in a courtroom smiling and boasting about killing police officers prompted critics to complain.
It is outrageous what the Democrats are doing to our Country. Vote Republican now! https://t.co/0pWiwCHGbh pic.twitter.com/2crea9HF7G— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 31, 2018
He adds, "All I'm doing is just telling the truth."
The video alleges without evidence that Democrats were responsible for allowing Luis Bracamontes into the U.S. Bracamontes, a twice-deported immigrant from Mexico, was sentenced to death in California for the 2014 killings of two police officers.
It also includes scenes of a migrant caravan moving toward the U.S., warning ominously, "Who else would Democrats let in?" and suggesting that more violence would soon penetrate the border.
