Anderson Cooper grills Trump: ‘Isn’t it hypocritical for you to employ illegal immigrants?’

Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper this Wednesday, Donald Trump scrambled to justify a Washington Post story that said illegal immigrants were currently working on one of the 2016 GOP presidential candidate’s hotel construction projects – all in light of Trump’s recent public demonization of Mexican immigrants.

Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper this Wednesday, Donald Trump scrambled to justify a Washington Post story that said illegal immigrants were currently working on one of the 2016 GOP presidential candidate’s hotel construction projects – all in light of Trump’s recent public demonization of Mexican immigrants.

“Isn’t it hypocritical for you – saying that illegal immigration is killing this country – to be employing illegal immigrants?” Cooper asked at the outset.

Trump responded that he had read the Post’s story, but didn’t know “if it’s true” because it didn’t “name any names.”

Trump then passed off the responsibility to the contractors on the project, prompting Cooper to interrupt.

“But doesn’t the buck stop with you though?”

Trump agreed, but added that he and his team had painstakingly made sure the workers on the project were legit.

“We have gone out of our way to make sure that everybody in that building is legal,” Trump said. “And we do have some that were – that became – legal.”

Cooper, not buying Trump’s explanation, asserted that there must be someone on the job site who’s aware if the employees are documented or not.

“We check it probably more carefully than any job that was ever built,” Trump replied.

    Trump is a bloviating, caustic Fascist.

    I like him. He is straight forward and those media people are at a loss. Anderson looked stupid talking about something that happened 30 years ago. The Contractor is responsible. That’s how it has been since the beginning of time.
