In an interview with Alpha News reporter Liz Collin, former President Donald Trump discussed the 2024 presidential election in Minnesota, law enforcement, and Rep. Ilhan Omar. Additionally, the 45th president told Alpha News that mass deportations would be necessary to handle the ongoing illegal immigration crisis.

“You’re gonna have to have mass deportations,” President Trump told Collin. “The country can’t stand it. The country can’t handle it. And sanctuary cities are basically, it’s sanctuary for criminals because they’re coming in at levels and they go right into these sanctuary cities and they’re protected.”

In Minnesota, Democratic lawmakers have attempted to make Minnesota a so-called sanctuary state.

Referring to illegal immigrants, the 45th president said, “And they can be murderers from other countries. They come out of jails and they come out of mental institutions. And then they go into a sanctuary city and you can’t do what you have to do. It’s a very, very sad situation, and very sad what’s happened to your state. Your state is out of control and it’s this radical left philosophy that cannot be allowed to continue. If it does, the country is just not going to be a country anymore.”

In the interview, Collin noted that then-candidate Trump was less than two points away from winning the state of Minnesota in the 2016 presidential election, but no Republican has won a statewide election in Minnesota since 2006.

On this topic, the former president said that President Joe Biden’s failures and unpopularity would turn the tide.

“I think number one, Biden is so bad,” said President Trump. “He’s the worst president in the history of our country. He’s destroying our country.”

President Trump strongly criticized Biden’s handling of the southern border “where millions of people are coming in,” before turning to the state of the economy.

“You look at the fact that [Biden] wants to quadruple your taxes, which will be a total killer to the economy. You look at his horrible inflation, which we’re going to get down. We’re going to reduce energy prices for your state. But for most of the states, by more than half, we’re going to be able to reduce them, I believe by 50%, at least. And that’s going to bring down inflation, and we’re going to have — we’re going to get back to normal. People are being decimated by inflation,” added Trump.

Additionally, the 45th president denounced the way the Biden Administration handled the withdrawal from Afghanistan.

President Trump noted that he would have managed the Afghanistan withdrawal “with pride and dignity and strength.” However, the way the Biden Administration handled the withdrawal resulted in “the most embarrassing day in the history of our country. We’ve never had a day so embarrassing, in my opinion,” said President Trump.

On the subject of law enforcement and anti-law enforcement sentiment across the country, President Trump told Alpha News that police need to be given back their dignity, their respect, and their authority. The former president elaborated by saying police “know who the criminals are. They see it, but they’re not allowed to do their job.”

“You have to have law and order,” added Trump.

Collin also asked the 45th president whether Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is serving her constituents well given the recent controversy relating to comments Rep. Omar made about Jewish students.

“Well, she hates Jewish people and she hates Israel,” said President Trump. “There’s no question about that. And I think she does a terrible job, but perhaps there’s a little group or a small group in there that likes her and likes that philosophy, but it’s not right and it’s not good for our country.”

“She’s a hater, and she hates at levels … rarely seen before,” added the former president.

In addition to these topics, President Trump discussed ongoing conflicts around the world, the 2020 riots in Minneapolis, and the upcoming Minnesota Republican Party Lincoln-Reagan dinner in his interview with Alpha News.
