(FreedomBeacon.com)- Donald Trump is secretly upset that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis flew immigrants from the Texas border to Martha’s Vineyard. He claims that his future competitor for the presidency in 2024 stole his idea of turning immigrants into weapons. In the end, Trump was correct, but his ideas were far more radical than anything DeSantis has proposed thus far.
According to three persons with knowledge of the situation, the then-president discussed a proposal in early 2019 to bus migrants suspected of committing violent crimes from the border to liberal metropolitan regions. Two sources claim that Trump instructed employees directly that the goal was to “punish” his political adversaries in areas that Democrats govern.
According to former Department of Homeland Security employee Miles Taylor, he was in the Oval Office for a meeting in March 2019 where Trump got more specific than just dumping them in blue states.
He reportedly said that he wanted to pick the worst of the worst criminals- real murderers and real rapists who entered the southern border- and send them to liberal strongholds. According to Taylor, he didn’t want to expel them, which is what you’re supposed to do in certain circumstances. He made it clear that he desired to have them transported by bus in order to “destabilize” those sanctuary communities.
According to Taylor, the then-president named New York City, Los Angeles, Portland, and Chicago as some of the major cities he wanted his government to focus on.
Taylor is the former government employee who authored the well-known “Anonymous” op-ed in The New York Times that attacked Donald Trump. His description of Trump’s strategy expands on a remark he made earlier this week on CNN. Taylor is a steadfast critic of Trump, but even those who are still in good standing in Trumpworld remember the president mentioning plans to use migrant workers who are believed to be violent to target his political rivals.
President Donald Trump reportedly discussed the idea of busing MS-13 members “across the border” to places like New York and San Francisco.
In his first campaign, Trump claimed that Mexican immigrants were “bringing drugs, bringing crime, they’re rapists.”
His administration’s efforts to turn that xenophobic rhetoric into government action largely fell flat, and the staff assumed he would forget about the topic.
Former Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ attempt to forcibly deport fifty asylum seekers to the island of Martha’s Vineyard purportedly angered Trump.
This was his idea.
