Trump's 'Detailed Immigration Policy' Speech Sounds More Like A Neo-Nazi Anti-Immigrant Hate Speech
Fresh from his trip speaking with the President of Mexico, Donald Trump flew to the home state of anti-immgrant hate, Arizona, to deliver a speech his new campaign managers framed as a detailed immigration policy speech.
Instead, after a few minutes of trying to sound presidential, Trump went off the teleprompter and delivered what many on Twitter said sounded like one with strong overtones of Neo-Naziism.
At one point Trump, after spending minutes painting Mexican immigrants as criminals, said, ""Maybe they'll be able to deport her" Hillary Clinton.

The "them" are what Trump told his audience are the 2 million "criminal aliens" that the Obama administration, he falsely claimed, refuses to deport out of "political correctness."
"My first hour in office – those people are gone," Trump promised the crowd. "The crime will stop."
The majority of Trump's speech, which he is still delivering as of this writing, is a direct assault on all immigrants, in the U.S. legally or not. Trump also is making clear any immigrant in the U.S. who is here and can be deported for any reason will be. This is not just a promise to deport the 11 million who are undocumented, this is a promise to reduce the number of immigrants, period.
Some responses via Twitter:
This is the worst, most hateful speech by an American politician I've ever seen.— Charles Johnson (@Green_Footballs) September 1, 2016
This sounds familiar....didn't someone give a version of this speech circa 1935? Waiting for crowd to start singing "Tomorrow Belongs to Me"— Joe Sudbay (@JoeSudbay) September 1, 2016

Is this damn clear enough to you now?
Trump forgets this is America not nazi Germany and he's not Hitler even if he is using the same strategy with hate speeches.— Jess Escatiola (@SoCalChuy) September 1, 2016
Jesus. #Trump sums up his plan as basically "cleaning" out American population. If this isn't terrifying to you, you're not listening.— Yvanna Cancela (@ydc226) September 1, 2016
Trump's speech tonight could be a Nazi rally speech. Terrifying. Hopefully most Americans are tuning this out and watching baseball.— Mike Gibbs (@Mikeggibbs) September 1, 2016
