Trump: “Immigration is a privilege, not a right”

President Donald Trump said today that “immigration is a privilege, not a right,” and insisted that the protection of the citizens of his country should be a national security priority.

After a dialogue they held this morning, US President Donald Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared before reporters and discussed immigration, NATO and conflict issues in Ukraine.

Trump stated that “immigration is a privilege, not a right.” Trump believes that the issue of migration should focus first on national security, as it is a matter in which both leaders have very different views. Trumps of Nationalism vs the free world of Global Inclusion, that most first world countries subscribe to – including Germany, France, England, and Canada.

“Immigration is a privilege, not a right, and the safety of our citizens must always be in the first place,” said the American leader and National idiot. Trump added that he will respect historical institutions and “the right of free people to direct their own destiny”. Yeah right!

NATO

Trump also reiterated his “strong support for NATO” and its member countries even though all suggestion point in the other direction. “I have reiterated to Chancellor Merkel my strong support for NATO, as well as the need for our NATO allies to pay their fair share of the cost of defense. Many nations owe large amounts of money from past years, and it’s very unfair to the US, “Trump said. Unfortunately, Trump doesn’t understand that it’s not a bill at a high priced restaurant, but rather goals for all countries to achieve.Trump weakness in the area of NATO has become clear to all that have served and worked with the International organization.

Trump thanked Merkel for his commitment to increasing defense spending as well as support for NATO in Afghanistan despite the fact that it cost the lives of more than 50 German soldiers. The US president has also highlighted Berlin’s participation in the coalition against the Islamic state.

At a photo op with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Donald Trump said little and appeared to refuse a handshake suggested by the German leader. In a video of the incident, reporters called for Trump and Merkel to shake hands at the end of the photo op, as is customary during meetings between foreign leaders. Hearing the calls for a handshake, Merkel appears to quietly ask Trump, “do you want to have a handshake?” Trump either does not hear her or ignores her request. They do not shake hands.

Trump has criticized Merkel’s lenient migration policy in Germany as “catastrophic” and Merkel has criticized Trump’s efforts to ban immigrants from Muslim-majority countries. The two leaders were expected to discuss the future of NATO and the EU in their first face-to-face meeting.
