Here’s the flashback clip of the day: Watch President Barack Obama explain why economic refugees don’t qualify for asylum in the U.S.
Barack Obama explained that crime and poverty do not justify a valid asylum claim. 100% of the policies that Democrats call President Trump a “racist” for, Obama did first and literally, none of them cared whatsoever.
Is Barack Obama a racist too?

What a great catch by Grabien’s Tom Elliott.
Here’s then-President Obama explaining why economic refugees don’t qualify for asylum in the United States and how it would be so much better if they were able to file asylum claims in-country rather than making the dangerous journey through Mexico:
But it’s only racist when President Trump says it. More
Twitter chimed in:
Is it possible that BHO is a racist? I hope that the Squad can clarify this for us….I’m all confused…

Unbelievable. You can’t make up how corrupt #democrats are along with their main stream media handlers.

As a Californian if crime and poverty were the criteria I would claim asylum in Mexico.

Problem of illegal immigration #USA been problem long before #Trump administration took over. The ‘sweet heart of the World’ President had same issues but did media scream about it…No. Yet @realDonaldTrump is lambasted.

Trump should repeat this speech word for word just to see the reaction from the left????

@AOC so is Obama racist too?

It’s just amazing that Democrats today are left of Obama when President. This isn’t a complicated issue, just follow law.

They want to rewrite history and will always blame everything on Trump. It is just astonishing how so many buy what the liberal media is selling.

Highlighting the double standard found in today’s political climate will fall on the deaf ears of those pushing their own political agenda as well as the media that covers them……

When the left tries to tie every action to racism, this is the hole they dig for themselves. Maybe, just maybe, not everything has racist undertones.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
