President Donald Trump indicated Monday he has no interest in allowing people into the U.S. if they are on welfare or need it.
“I don’t want to have anyone coming in that’s on welfare,” Trump said during a White House interview with Breitbart News. “We have a problem, because we have politicians that are not strong, or they have bad intentions, or they want to get votes, because they think if they come in they’re going to vote Democrat, you know, for the most part.”
Trump added that because of America’s debts to other countries and spending on the military and alliances such as NATO, the U.S. cannot keep adding more welfare recipients.
The White House budget for 2020 unveiled Monday includes $8.6 billion for additional barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.
President Donald Trump, after saying he was “disappointed” at reports that North Korea is rebuilding a missile test site, is open to more talks with the nation’s leader, Chairman Kim Jong Un, and believes a deal can be reached after their summit in Hanoi ended without a denuclearization agreement, National Security Adviser John Bolton said Thursday.
“I think the North Koreans obviously would like to give up as little of their nuclear and biological and chemical weapons and ballistic missile programs as they could in exchange for very broad sanctions relief,” Bolton told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.”
“That’s basically what they asked for. The president wasn’t buying it. He said, ‘Look, we want the big deal that will give North Korea a bright future, but which results in complete denuclearization.’”
The negotiations process is still in its early stage, noted Bolton, and the United States has other intelligence information beyond the commercial imagery showing North Korea was rebuilding a long-range rocket site at the Sohae Satellite Launching Station, adding the situation will be studied carefully.
