Reporter: “Should there be a database or system that tracks Muslims in this country?”
Trump: “There should be a lot of systems. Beyond databases. I mean, we should have a lot of systems. And today you can do it. But right now we have to have a border, we have to have strength, we have to have a wall, and we cannot let what’s happening to this country happen any longer.”
Reporter: “But that’s something your White House would like to implement.”
Trump: “Oh I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.”
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. 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.”
Trump: “Look, he’s proud of his heritage, OK? I’m building a wall. Now, I think I’m going to do very well with Hispanics…because I’m going to bring back jobs. And they are going to get jobs. I think I’m going to do very well with Hispanics.
But we are building a wall. He’s a Mexican. We’re building a wall between here and Mexico.
The answer is, he is giving us very unfair rulings, rulings that people can’t even believe. This case should have ended years ago on summary judgment. The best lawyers — I have spoken to so many lawyers — they said, `This is not a case. This is a case that should have ended.’ This judge is giving us unfair rulings. Now, I say. `Why?’ Well, I’m building a wall, OK? And it’s a wall between Mexico. Not another country.”
Tapper: “But he’s not from Mexico. He’s from Indiana.”
Trump: “He’s of Mexican heritage and he’s very proud of it.”
