Trump just issued the most un-American statement of his entire presidency

The past few weeks have seen the Trump administration rapidly escalate its war against undocumented immigrants, most notably through his deployment of the “zero tolerance” detention policy and the forcible separation of families from their children.

But it appears that child concentration camps was just the beginning. Inspired by this morning’s Supreme Court ruling that gave him the win he needed to impose a ban on Muslims from certain countries travelling to the United States, Trump let his ultimate goal slip in a meeting today with top Senators.

During the course of the meeting, the subject of immigration came up, which prompted Trump to criticize our nation’s current immigration policy a “hodgepodge of laws” before suggesting a “simple fix:”

“It’s called, ‘I’m sorry you can’t come in’.”

Continuing the conversation, Trump was then reportedly asked whether he planned to uphold his nakedly racist and cruel anti-Muslim travel ban.

Trump’s response to the question was “of course,” noting that the Supreme Court was the “final word.”

If that’s truly what Trump believes, someone might want to tell him that the Supreme Court ruled the Affordable Care Act constitutional in 2012, since he’s spent the majority of the past year doing everything he can to undermine and weaken the landmark healthcare bill.

But his true goal – the end to all legal immigration – is a horrifying development that should prompt a cry of outrage from every boot-licking pundit who complained about the un-Americaness of harassing Trump administration officials when they appear in public.

America is a nation founded by immigrants in the ashes of a horrifying genocide; immigration and the idea of our nation as a land of opportunity is one of the most important parts of both the American mythos and our identity as a nation.

For this bloated and grotesque racist – who himself is descended from immigrants – to call for an end to all legal immigration for nonwhites on the basis of their skin color is a hundred times more an offensive and disgusting thing than bothering a Nazi while he eats tacos – but somehow we doubt we’ll see the same reaction from the jackals in media who howled in outrage at Maxine Waters’ remarks on Saturday.

Fighting for the right to immigrate to the United States and to protect the families of those who come here seeking safety and shelter must be our biggest priority in the coming months.
