President Donald Trump Friday afternoon labeled undocumented immigrants crossing the U.S. Southern border an “invasion” during a ceremony vetoing a resolution blocking his border wall which he promised Mexico would pay for.

“For many years I had been hearing and reading of the invasion of France by nonwhites,” the terror suspect wrote, according to Rupar, adding, “once I arrived in France, I found the stories not only to be true, but profoundly understated.”

Journalist and executive Soledad O’Brien made clear what’s happening here:
