Dick Morris Discusses Trump's Powerful Immigration Policies

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

On the issues, let's talk about the issue of immigration. Ann coulter has been bitterly against him really for the last 5 years because she claims he did nothing. He did not do what he said he was going to do, which is build the wall. There's some truth to that. I never came to understand how much truth there is to that. What's that big thing on the border?

And Trump got him to put together 28,000 troops on the border on the Mexican side to apprehend immigrants and solve Trump's problems for him. And the way Trump did that was that he renegotiated nafta. Free trade. And made it into a very advantageous deal for Mexico and for the U.S.. And then he went to Mexico and said, okay, if you do not post these troops on the border, he said the graphically said that was a Friday. He said on Monday morning at 8 a.m. there will be a 25% U.S. tariff on any imports coming from Mexico, which in one stroke would destroy their entire economy.
