What a contrast, huh? Donald Trump’s campaign blasted the existence of ‘sanctuary cities’ while Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, was in denial of their existence. Trump’s campaign said the following:
“Throughout his presidential campaign, Donald J. Trump has been consistent in his calls to end illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border. He is the only candidate in this race who will stop illegal immigration, secure our border, end sanctuary cities, enforce our existing laws and stop American employers from hiring illegal workers. These reforms will not only put an end to our illegal immigration epidemic — they will promote safe communities and good-paying jobs that will make America great again”.
Compare that with a CNN interview with Tim Kaine, where he said these cities didn’t exist and was called out by CNN host Chris Cuomo over that comment:
“When Donald Trump kind of goes after these phantom ‘sanctuary cities’ and talks about how bad they are, basically what he’s going after is police chiefs. And I trust police chiefs in terms of knowing what should be done to keep their communities safer and police departments and mayors a lot more than I trust Donald Trump.”
