People Slam Trump’s Immigration Comments — But They’re Actually Obama’s

DCNF Video Team on April 10, 2019

People were quick to slam former President Barack Obama’s comments promoting cultural assimilation when presented under the guise that they were President Donald Trump’s.

Obama said at a town hall Saturday: “If you’re going to have a coherent, cohesive society, then everybody has to have some agreed upon rules. It’s not racist to say if you’re going to be here then you should learn the language of the country you just arrived at.”

Some believed that assimilation was necessary, but three women The Daily Caller News Foundation surveyed in Washington, D.C.’s Chinatown were opposed to the “racist” idea that one must learn English if they come to the U.S.

“English isn’t even the dominant language in the world,” one woman said.

  • I did exact;y that. I spoke broken German and Italian. It was fun and I gained new friends that were very happy to help me.

  • “English isn’t even the dominant language in the world,” It is when you live in the USA. Most people who move to another country at least try and learn the new language

  • No one said English is the language of the world. However, it is the only language used by air traffic controllers worldwide…...just saying

  • Our entire education system has grotesquely failed this country. AOC is a perfect example of someone with years of "education" who remains completely ignorant and unable to critically evaluate information she's given. Her only talent is using her brass set to regurgitate the nonsense she's been fed in the form of inflammatory rhetoric and inciting riotous action.
