Trump Laughs When Rally-Goer Suggests 'Shooting' Migrants

Trump Laughs When Rally-Goer Suggests 'Shooting' Migrants President Trump made an appearance in Panama City, Florida, on May 9 to host a campaign rally.

When he rhetorically asked the audience “how do you stop these people,” in reference to migrants, a member of the audience replied, “shoot them!’ This caused the president to chuckle, and the crowd to laugh and cheer at the remark.

Donald Trump, via ‘Newsweek’ Prior to this, Trump had complained about “border security people” and their inability to use weapons on migrants.

Donald Trump, via 'Newsweek' This isn’t the first time Trump has displayed his favor of using force against migrants.

In November 2018, Trump suggested that troops should shoot at migrants that throw rocks, saying there wasn’t “much difference” between a rock and a gun.

Later that month, the White House authorized military troops along the southwest border to use lethal force if necessary.
