Trump Rails Against Immigration System In Weekly Address


In his weekly address, Trump railed against the current U.S. immigration system, calling it “outdated” and suggesting that it is designed to help “special interests.”

The president’s address was a continuation of his remarks on Friday, in which he called immigrants who enter the U.S. through visa lotteries the “worst of the worst.” Read more at The Hill.
