Donald Trump just gave one of the most bizarrely captivating speeches of his several-week-old campaign (July 11, 2016)
Standing in front of an animated screen in Las Vegas on Saturday, Trump spoke passionately for almost a half an hour, hitting some of his main talking points: President Obama’s weakness, a ‘porous’ Southern border, his business successes, and even Benghazi.

Trump made illegal immigration the primary focus of his speech, railing against the Mexican government for supposedly sending illegal immigrants to the US.

Trump faced widespread criticism after he said in his announcement speech last month that some Mexican immigrants are rapists and drug dealers.

Trump refused to back down from his comments about the danger of undocumented immigrants.

“They’re sending us their problems,” Trump said, referring to Mexico.

To illustrate his point, Trump brought a man onstage named Jameil Shaw, whose son was allegedly killed by an undocumented immigrant. Trump said that as soon as authorities realized that Shaw’s son was allegedly shot by an undocumented immigrant, “nobody wanted to talk about it.
Trump proposed that protesters and critics were being sent by the government of Mexico to oppose him.

“They were so sophisticated. I guarantee you that the country of Mexico had those people [sent there],” Trump said.

Trump mocked media outlets for doubting his self-proclaimed billion fortune, proof of which the real-estate mogul claims that he will release next week.

“I’m much, much richer than what they say,” Trump said. “I’m a private person, nobody knows.”

Trump praised various Republican constituencies, including Tea Party voters and libertarians.

“Nobody knows the power of the Tea Party. I only say that because the Tea Party loves me,” Trump said.
Since Trump’s speech, numerous companies with business connections with Trump including NBC, Macy’s, and Nascar announced that they would be cutting ties with the reality-television star.

In the speech on Saturday, Trump again singled out Univision for its decision to not to carry Trump’s Miss USA pageant, suggesting that Mexico itself pressured Univision to sever ties with Trump.

“Mexico put the clamps on Univision,” Trump said. “Mexico has a lot of power over them.”
Trump also blasted the Obama administration’s negotiating skills, slamming the administration’s agreement to exchange five Guantanamo Bay prisoners for Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who was being held hostage by the Taliban in Afghanistan, in June 2014.

“Here’s a guy, Sergeant Bergdahl. We get Bergdahl, a traitor, a no-good traitor, who in the good-old-days would’ve been executed, and they get five killers who are right now out on the battlefield,” Trump said.

According to the New York Post, three of the five former detainees traded for Bergdahl have attempted to contact associates within terrorist networks.

Trump touted his strength at making deals, citing his book, “The Art of the Deal,” as a reason why he should be put in charge of trade deals and nuclear negotiations.

“You know who hasn’t read [the Art of the Deal?] Obama,” Trump said.

“Persians are great negotiators, Iran great negotiators,” Trump said.

Most of Trump’s solutions relied heavily on Trump’s personal deal-making skills and were not particularly specific, but the reality-television star did have specific idea in mind: put hotel mogul Phil Ruffin in charge of deal-making with China.

Toward the end of the speech, Trump brought Ruffin onstage to highlight how a good deal is made.

Trump Rails Against ‘Dishonest’ Media, Hillary, and the GOP in Vegas Speech
Donald Trump spoke at the Freedom Fest in Las Vegas today and continued to speak out against illegal immigration. He started out, however, by bragging about the size of the audience he drew.

Trump then made the same points he’s been making about immigration. He acknowledged the protests that have formed in opposition to him and declared, “I guarantee you that the country of Mexico had those people doing it.”

He also went off on NBC for dumping him, the media for being “very dishonest,” Hillary Clinton for her email controversy, and the Republican party. Trump said he’s “disappointed in the GOP” for expressing “48 hours of indignation” about Clinton’s emails, the IRS, and Benghazi, and then shutting up about it.

“If I get this nomination,” he promised, “you’re gonna hear a lot about it.”
