The hypocrisy is stunning. In 1995, BJ Clinton got a standing ovation for saying the same thing President Trump is asserting today.
While former President Bill Clinton’s 1995 speech on illegal immigration got a standing ovation when he used the same talking points as Republican nominee Donald Trump, Trump’s Arizona speech Wednesday got him called a racist.
Clinton gave a State of the Union address where he said all Americans were disturbed by the amount of illegal immigrants in the country. He noted the burdens they put on the tax payers before vowing to crack down aggressively.
“That’s why our administration has moved to aggressively secure our borders more, by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as every before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens,” Clinton said.
Clinton received a standing ovation for his remarks.
