Reporter to Trump: ‘You and the Shooter in El Paso Used the Same Language, Do You Regret That?’

‘I think illegal immigration is a terrible thing for this country’

EXCERPT:

REPORTER: "Mr. President, you and the shooter in El Paso used that same language. Do you regret that?"
TRUMP: "I think that illegal immigration -- you’re talking about illegal immigration, right? I think illegal immigration is a terrible thing for this country. I think you have to come in legally. Ideally you have to come in through merit. We need people coming in because we have many companies coming into our country, they’re pouring in, and I think illegal immigration is very bad thing for our country.”
