A speaker at Donald Trump’s Wednesday campaign event told supporters that he believed the candidate was “sent from God” to stop the “oppression from illegal aliens.”
During his rally in Mesa, Arizona, Trump declared that he would build a border wall taller than the airplane hangar that was being used as the event venue.
The GOP hopeful then introduced Jamiel Shaw, whose son was killed by an undocumented immigrant in 2008.
“That’s why we need Donald Trump,” Shaw said after explaining about his son’s tragic death. “Because Donald Trump is going to make it safe again.”
“Nobody cares. It’s all about illegal aliens, that’s all they care about,” he continued. “They don’t care about us as Americans. Trump wants to make America first, okay. We need that.”
Shaw added: “This is our time to live on the Earth. Why do we have to be under this oppression from illegal aliens, and they’re getting the American dream and we’re getting the American nightmare.”
In conclusion, he insisted that the “only way we’re going to fix it” was to elect Trump.
“We’ve got to stand with Trump and you have to trust him the way I do because I believe that he was sent from God,” Shaw said.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
