“Poisoning the Blood” Remarks Lead to New Support for Trump

(IntegrityPress.org) – Forty-two percent of respondents asked about Trump’s controversial remarks wherein he said illegals were “poisoning the blood” of the United States said they were more likely to support him according to a poll by the Des Moines Register and others.

The poll asked Republican caucus members about a variety of statements Trump has made, including the controversial remark about illegals causing harm. The remarks were hotly condemned by leftists and even some Republicans as a little too close to Hitler.

Godwin’s Law states that the longer an argument goes on, the higher the probability one side compares the other to Hitler. The extreme irony of accusing Trump of wrong-doing because of something he said, while millions of illegals are allowed into the country with no consequences is mind-boggling.

Twenty-eight percent of respondents said the remarks made them less-likely to support him, and twenty-nine percent said they were inconsequential. The poll asked 502 Republicans who were likely to attend the Iowa caucus between December 2nd and 7th and had a 4.4-point margin of error.

Trump slapped back against the Hitler comparisons suggesting he never read Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” and found the comparisons silly. He referenced various metrics including the spike in criminal activity all along the border and nearly 5 million encounters with illegals wherein the individuals were given a court date years in the future and released into the country. It’s estimated that a further 3-5 million more could occur before the next election.

The strain is causing all kinds of problems including stressing out municipal services in border towns. Arizona has activated the National Guard in response to the crisis. Democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs has done a 180 on the issue after being in office for nearly a year.

Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) said it was “objectively” true that there was an invasion of illegals “poisoning the blood” of the US. Writers at the New York Times did their best to confuse illegal and legal immigrants, suggesting Trump hates all immigrants in their rhetoric. That seems unlikely considering his wife is a legal American immigrant from Slovenia with which he had his youngest son, Barron.
