Jesus Christ. It’s like we’re being governed by a guy who’s never left Hayward, Wisconsin.
Today, Donald Trump said he’s wary of people who are traveling to the U.S. from the Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. Gee, I wonder why that would be.
“I don’t want to allow people that weren’t supposed to be in the Bahamas to come into the United States, including some very bad people and some very bad gang members, and some very, very bad drug dealers,” Trump continued.
The president claimed that “large sections” of the Bahamas were not hit by Dorian, and that the U.S. would seek to relocate Bahamians in need to those parts of the country.
Trump’s remarks came after dozens of people evacuating the Bahamas were kicked off of a ferry headed for Florida over confusion regarding their visas.
I don’t know why I’m leaving this here, but this is the ethnic breakdown of the Bahamas, from the CIA World Factbook:
black 90.6%, white 4.7%, black and white 2.1%, other 1.9%, unspecified 0.7% (2010 est.)
So, yeah. This again.
