A reporter just tried to call Donald Trump’s language on illegal aliens “offensive.” But the GOP frontrunner shut him right down on live TV — and showed the “No P.C.” attitude that has won him so many fans.
In a press conference in New Hampshire, Trump talked up his immigration plan — especially regarding the issue of birthright citizenship — the aptly-named “anchor babies.”
Trump wants to end it, and his proposal has wide support. He talked about it today:
When a Latino reporter challenged Trump, saying the term “anchor babies” was “offensive” — Trump would have none of it:
Trump was asked, “You said that you have a big heart, and that you’re not mean-spirited. Are you aware that the term ‘anchor baby,’ that’s an offensive term? People find that hurtful.”
Trump responded, “You mean it’s not politically correct, and yet everybody uses it?” He then suggested the reporter give him a different term to use, to which the reporter suggested “The American-born [children] of undocumented immigrants.” Trump said in response, “I’ll use the word ‘anchor baby.’”
