Default Donald Trump's tirade on Mexico's 'drugs and rapists' outrages US Latinos

Donald Trump has been labelled an “extremely silly man” by America’s largest Latino civil rights organisation after claiming that Mexico is sending “rapists” to the US.

While Republicans such as Jeb Bush are going out of their way to attract the increasingly important Hispanic vote in 2016 – Bush delivered some of his launch speech in Spanish – Trump appeared to be heading in a different direction with his campaign launch on Tuesday.

“[Mexico] are sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs, and bringing crime, and their rapists,” the business mogul said.

Such claims were “absurd”, said Lisa Navarrete, a spokeswoman for the National Council of La Raza, a Hispanic civil rights and advocacy organisation.

“This is a man who has a pathological need for attention,” said Navarrete. “I look at him as a two-year-old who will say a naughty word to get their parents’ attention. That’s what he’s doing.”

Trump has toyed with running for president since the 1980s. He has said he was considering a bid during almost every election cycle since 2000. Tuesday’s event at Trump Tower represents the first time he has fully outlined his policies and political beliefs.

He aimed specific ire at Mexico, claiming he would build a “great, great wall” on the Mexican-American border, and accusing the country of sending “not the right people” to the US.

“The US has become a dumping ground for everyone else’s problems,” he said.

Navarrete said the claim that Mexicans seeking work in America were rapists was “offensive”.

“This is an exceedingly silly man, who has no idea what he’s talking about,” she said.

Navarrete said although Trump’s statements had “no basis in fact”, they fitted in with a perception of the party he sought to represent.

“Part of the reason why Latinos are so alienated from the Republican party these days is there’s a sense that there are people who actually believe [what Trump said],” she said.

“I’m hoping that the saner, more rational people in the Republican party can put a stop to this kind of thing, and say: ‘No, we’re going to be constructive, we’re not going to needlessly and consciously alienate the fastest-growing group of voters in this country.”

Drugs, crime, and rapists are indeed coming into our country via Mexico. Factual statement.

I like politicians that would rather give you the cold, hard facts as opposed to candy-coating sh*t.

Is that all you know or all you are paid to know. Mexicans are soldiers, fathers, husbands, hard working family men. You don'tr know that part though. The right Judging folks faster than they can collect their own thoughts.

Finally a candidate who isn't afraid of the truth, no matter how much it hurts the panty waist liberals.

Some ARE rapists, thugs, and gang members, and all who come here illegally are lawbreakers.

Here's the quote from the OP...

Quote:
“[Mexico] are sending people that have lots of problems, and they are bringing those problems to us. They are bringing drugs, and bringing crime, and their rapists,” the business mogul said.
And here is what Trump ACTUALLY said...

Quote:
They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.
Now why would anyone...let alone a media outlet...REMOVE the last seven words of his statement?...

Because "Mexico gives us their bad AND their good" sounds like a reasonable statement that reasonable people would agree with, and we JUST can't have that...
