Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday that she thinks Donald Trump’s plan to deport illegal immigrants is disqualifying: “You can’t be president of the United States if that’s your view about how we’re going to solve immigration reform.”
Warren, appearing on “The View,” conceded, however, that Trump’s plan for “taxation of the billionaires, the people who are making the money on Wall Street” was “a pretty bright position.”
Paula Faris: A lot of people will say there’s not much of substance there in policy but a lot of style. He’s resonating with people for whatever reason. What is it, how are people resonating, what is it that he’s doing that’s creating it? Can you guys put your finger on it?
Elizabeth Warren: I don’t know. There are a lot of places where he gets out and talks about important things. Like Donald Trump and I both agree that there ought to be more taxation of the billionaires, the people who are making the money on Wall Street.
Joy Behar: That’s a pretty liberal position, he must be driving the right wingers out of their mind.
Warren: Don’t call it liberal. It is a pretty bright position. And it’s where most of America…
Faris: What is it that he’s doing that’s connecting with people?
Warren: Well, I got to tell you it’s the other half with Donald Trump. Because he’s the one who said he wants to rip 11 million people who live in this country right now, rip them out of their families, take them away and deport them. For me, that just scratches his name off the list. You can’t be president of the United States if that’s your view about how we’re going to solve immigration reform. That’s wrong.
