“Mexico just asked for $10 billion a year. I wouldn’t give him 10 cents” — Trump Blows Hot On-Air

According to a report by Newsweek on Saturday, March 30, 2024, former President Donald Trump warned that if Americans don’t vote for him in November, they risk losing their country.

Trump, the expected Republican presidential nominee, discussed various topics, including his anticipated rematch with Democratic opponent President Joe Biden on November 5, in an interview with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade aired on Saturday night.

“The most important day in the history of our country is going to be November 5,” Trump said.

“Our country is going bad. And it’s going to be changed on November 5, and if it’s not changed we’re not going to have a country anymore.”

Steven Cheung, a spokesperson for Trump’s campaign, reaffirmed the former president’s comments, stating in an email to Newsweek on Saturday night: “Without law and order and safety for all Americans, we won’t have a country anymore.”

During the Fox News interview, the former president covered various other subjects, such as Truth Social and the killing of a New York Police Department officer.

During the One Nation with Brian Kilmeade segment, Trump talked about Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s recent appearance on 60 Minutes.

López Obrador proposed ideas for how the U.S. could reduce the flow of migrants at its southern border, sparking backlash from conservative lawmakers.

López Obrador proposed four measures that the U.S. government could take to tackle the political and economic issues fueling recent migrant surges.

He asked for the allocation of $20 billion annually to impoverished countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, removing sanctions on Venezuela, lifting the Cuban embargo, and providing legal status to law-abiding undocumented Mexican migrants residing in the U.S.

Trump criticized the Mexican president’s suggestion, stating, “Mexico just asked for $10 billion a year. I wouldn’t give him 10 cents.”

When questioned by Kilmeade about what prompted the change, the former president replied, “It’s very simple, lack of respect for the President. They would never say that to me.”

Earlier this week, the ex-president spoke with Kilmeade following his attendance at the wake of Jonathan Diller, a 31-year-old NYPD officer killed on duty in Queens during a traffic stop.

Trump shared about meeting Diller’s family, including his wife Stephanie and their one-year-old child.

Guy Rivera, 34, faced first-degree murder charges this week; Rivera had a history of at least 21 prior arrests, as reported by The New York Times.

“Stephanie is incredible,” Trump said. “And they wanted me to be there, and I wanted to be there. They’re devastated. The family is devastated. The police force is devastated.

The whole country feels this way. And it’s happening more and more, and it’s really a lack of respect for law and order and we have to have law and order back in our country.”

On Thursday, Trump went to Diller’s wake in Massapequa, Long Island, while Biden was in New York at a campaign fundraising event organized by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

Kilmeade asked Trump if he believed it would have been feasible for the president to meet with the family that day, considering logistical factors.

“I’d say within a half an hour depending on the mode of travel, so you know they have some pretty fast travel,” Trump said.

“I think that politically he can’t support the police. I think he’s also making a mistake, but I think politically his base won’t let him support the police.

I support the police, I would say at the highest level of any president by far, maybe double or triple, and they knew that that’s why when I walked into that funeral power it was like love.”

Shareholders of Digital World Acquisition Corp. voted to merge with Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), allowing Trump’s company to go public.

The new entity operates Truth Social, a social media platform created as an alternative to Facebook and Twitter.

TMTG is valued at approximately $9 billion, with Trump owning a 58 percent stake.

If elected in November, Trump would be the first U.S. president with a controlling stake in a publicly traded company.

Kilmeade asked Trump: “You probably got an extra $5 billion in your checking account, What does that mean to you?”

“Truth has been amazing,” Trump said. “It gave me a voice. And when I was terminated from Twitter, it was vicious, and then all of a sudden I didn’t have a voice. And now it’s public.

And the stock has gone through the roof. And really this is, I think in the true sense, this is really a great sign of where the people in this country stand. I view it as a poll. And I call it the voice. It’s the voice of America. It’s my voice.”
