Thousands of Donald Trump supporters braved Phoenix’ scorching midday temperatures as they waited outside the Veterans Memorial Coliseum for a chance to hear the Republican presidential candidate on Saturday. He began by addressing the Orlando massacre, making the point that it was about terrorism, not guns. Unlike Hillary, Donald Trump respects the Constitutionally protected Second Amendment.
There was a thunderous roar when he reiterated his promise to build a wall along our southern border. Trump made it clear that he welcomes legal immigration, but draws the line at allowing illegals to enter the U.S. or gifting them with amnesty. Appearing with Trump were longtime supporter Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, state Treasurer Jeff DeWit — Trump’s Arizona campaign chairman — and former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who enthusiastically gave her support to the GOP candidate, noting he “will protect Second Amendment rights.”
McCain challenger Dr. Kelli Ward was on hand, though the two Arizona senators kept their distance — once again. The always inappropriately grinning Jeff Flake has stated he’s “under no obligation“ to support Donald Trump, presumably opting for Hillary Clinton or hoping for a brokered convention that will permanently disable the Republican Party, throwing the convention into chaos. John McCain‘s polling numbers have continued to sink, as Dr. Ward mounts an effective challenge to the 80-year-old senator running for yet another 6-year term. This PPP poll illustrates McCain’s disconnect with Arizona Republican voters. Who can forget his duplicity in 2012 as he strolled the border with Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, promising to “Complete the danged fence?” Immediately after the ballots were counted, McCain did an about-face as he and Jeff Flake, teamed up with the most liberal band of Democrats as they initiated and tried to push through the Gang of Eight amnesty scheme.
Trump’s declaration, “I think we’re going to win!” was met with cheers from the appreciative crowd.
Watch this short video as Dick Morris explains how $16 billion a year is paid out to those in our country illegally through just two programs: The ‘Earned Income Tax Credit,’ with average monthly payments of $3,000 — and the ‘Additional Child Tax Credit,’ which digs into American taxpayer’s pockets for a bonus of $1800 a month per illegal household.
In addition to addressing the crime and flow of drugs into the U.S. is it any wonder Donald Trump’s pledge to build a wall along our southern border resonates with so many Americans?
