President elect of the United States Donald Trump has stated that he will go ahead with his hard line immigration policy which will see him deporting millions of people who according to him are undocumented and have questionable characters.
He stated this in a media chat ’60 minutes’ and also insisted he will go ahead with his plans to build the wall between the US and Mexico.
“What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people, probably two million – it could be even three million – we are getting them out of the country or we are going to incarcerate,” Trump told 60 Minutes. “Be we’re getting them out of the country, they’re here illegally.”
In his first television interview since winning the presidential election Trump explained that the wall along the 1 900 mile (about 3 000km) border would probably not be as grandiose as he promised – describing an iteration of the boundary between the two countries that essentially already exists. “There could be some fencing,” he said. “For certain areas I would [accept a fence], but certain areas, a wall is more appropriate. I’m very good at this, it’s called construction.”
Donald Trump also touched on the affordable care act ‘Obamacare’ and said Obamacare will be amended, or repealed and replaced.
