Bogus Billionaire: George Stephanopoulos Takes Down Donald Trump
Transcript via ABC’s This Week:
STEPHANOPOULOS: OK. But, let’s talk about you right now and your new immigration plan. You’ve been talking about on the stump, all of opponents having to react to it at this point. Jeb Bush one of the people that reacted to this thing, it’s going to cost hundreds of billions.
Are you willing to pay that price? And where are you going to get the money?
TRUMP: Well, first of all they’re wrong. And, you know, Jeb is a very low energy person. He’d never be able to do it. He’s the one that said they come out of an act of love, OK. This is an act of love. These are people coming and many of them — you look at what’s happening with the crime. Many of them are really causing tremendous problems. And they would be out really fast, immediately. First day we start that movement.
We need a wall. We have to get a wall. We need great security. And we’re going to have a wall that will be not let people in, George.
And, by the way, legally, if you’re legal you can come in. And we’ll cherish you for coming in.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But let me press you on the costs right there, Mr. Trump. They’re saying $400 billion to $600 billion. It would require big government apparatus to take everybody down. If you don’t think those numbers are right, how much is it going to cost and where are you going to get the money?
TRUMP: Well, it’s costing us $130 billion a year and that’s peanuts compared to what the real cost is, George, for the way we have it now. You have so many illegals. We don’t even know how many illegals. I hear 11 million. I hear 30 million.
