Donald Trump has vowed to deport every single one of the country’s illegal immigrants and rescind any executive orders Barack Obama put in place to protect them.
‘We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go,’ Trump told NBC’s Meet the Press in an interview that is set to air on Sunday morning.
Asked by host Chuck Todd about illegal immigrants who might have nowhere else to go, Trump said: ‘We will work with them.
‘They have to go … we either have a country, or we don’t have a country,’ he added.
Trump, 69, also said in the interview he would need to rescind Obama’s executive orders on immigration, including one that protects from deportation the children of parents who came to the country illegally.
The real estate mogul and television personality, who has rocketed to the top of opinion polls among the 17 Republican contenders, has aroused controversy with his provocative comments on illegal immigration, including describing some undocumented migrants from Mexico as criminals and rapists.
On Saturday he was mobbed at Iowa State Fair on Saturday afternoon as he staged a grandiose entrance in his $7million helicopter and launched an all-out war on his 2016 presidential rivals.
Shortly after 1pm, the GOP frontrunner arrived in his $7million Sikorsky S-76, landing in a parking lot near to the fairgrounds, which he had hired out so he could give free helicopter rides to children.
He then held a press event, during which he called Hillary Clinton the ‘worst Secretary of State’ in U.S. history, accused Jeb Bush of being a ‘puppet to his donors’ and asked: ‘Who likes Obama?’
Donning one of his now-famous ‘Make America Great Again!’™ caps, and surrounded by children, Trump declared ‘nobody’ would meet the high standards that he would set if he was president.
‘Voters like me, they know I’m doing to do the job,’ he said, adding that he would ‘bring back jobs’, ‘take care of people’, tackle illegal immigration and ‘be better to women’ – unlike other candidates.
Specifically targeting former Florida Governor Bush, the billionaire real-estate mogul said: ‘Jeb Bush is a puppet to his donors. There’s no question about it. He’s got lobbyists… I know them.’
