Emanuel: Trump Uses Immigration to Distract From Failure


Rahm Emanuel on This Week with George Stephanopoulos: “The other thing I would — the other thing I’ll show you is, the fact is, everything that he’s built has been built by undocumented people and people that staff it, including his golf facility in New Jersey. And third, here’s what he’s really trying to do, George; he introduced a budget which had the largest cut in Medicare and Medicaid. He’s trying to hide that because seniors are his most loyal voters and he’s having a debate about — not that there’s not a problem at the border. There’s a problem. But it’s not a problem that measures up to the — his problem. He is trying to stop — there’s no writing, there’s no reporting, we’re not going to bring up Medicare. His budget has the largest cut in Medicare and Medicaid of any presidential budget. And what he’s trying to do is make sure that seniors don’t know. And if I was the speaker, if I was Chuck Schumer, I’d pull that out of his budget and put it up just like Medicare for All.”
