Former President Donald Trump sparked controversy during a high-dollar fundraiser in Palm Beach, Florida, with his remarks on immigration, suggesting a preference for migrants from “nice” countries like Denmark and Switzerland.

Speaking to a wealthy audience, he expressed concern over migrants from what he termed “disaster” countries, including Yemen, while downplaying the contributions of migrants from Latin America.

Trump’s comments, made at a dinner hosted by billionaire financier John Paulson, drew attention to the ongoing immigration debate in the United States, particularly in light of President Joe Biden’s struggles with the border crisis.

Describing migrants as coming from “prisons and jails” and troubled nations, Trump emphasized his desire for immigrants from more affluent countries, drawing chuckles from the crowd.

The former president’s remarks reflected his campaign rhetoric, wherein he frequently criticized migrants from various regions, attributing increased crime rates to their presence. Despite lacking empirical evidence, Trump continued to associate migrants with criminality, even likening them to notorious biker gangs.

In addition to immigration, Trump aimed for Biden’s presidency, criticizing his handling of the Resolute Desk and suggesting it had been “soiled.” The remark, interpreted by some as a scatological reference, further fueled tensions among attendees.

Throughout the evening, Trump sought to appeal to his affluent donors, highlighting his administration’s tax cuts and regulatory policies. He engaged the audience in a discussion about their preferences between tax measures and regulatory reforms, emphasizing their collective success.

Ending his speech on a grim note, Trump painted a bleak picture of America’s future, suggesting that the upcoming election could be the nation’s last. His ominous declaration underscored the apocalyptic tone that has become characteristic of his campaign rallies.

While a Trump campaign official pointed to the event’s official readout, which focused on border security and tax cuts, the specific quotes attributed to Trump remained unaddressed.

The comments made during the fundraiser reignited debates over immigration policies and highlighted the enduring influence of Trump’s rhetoric on American politics.
