Donald Trump says he will put an end to the ‘unsustainable’ mass migration of birds to the US for the northern summer.
Trump told a packed rally in Arizona that the birds were taking advantage of the former administration’s weak border policies.
“Under President Obama, birds have been pouring across our borders unabated. Just look out your window and you’ll see them. All sorts of birds. Birds from Mexico, birds from Chile. Birds that look nothing like you or me.
“They’re taking advantage of our way of life. They’re taking our jobs, and pooping all over our children. A lot of them, they come here just to have babies – anchor babies – so they think they’ve got some kind of claim to stay.
“Are we gonna stop this scam? You bet we are”.
Asked how exactly he would stop the birds, Trump said he would make America great again. “Look, we can bring back the American Dream. We’re bringing it back. People are asking me the question, ‘Is the American Dream dead?’ And it’s in trouble, I can tell you. But we’re going to get it back and do some real jobs”.
