As Donald Trump prepared to announce his vice presidential pick, he came on Michael Savage’s conservative radio program, where he described himself as a loyal fan of the show then praised him for the “great job” he was doing.
During their discussion, Trump said something about Savage not “liking” the videos of the two African American men that were killed by police last week. Savage questioned where Trump heard that.
“I heard you say it, I heard you say it on the show,” Trump confirmed. “And, you know what, I heard you say it on the show, I do listen to your show, a lot of people listen to your show, I don’t even know if you know how many people. So many people come up and they say, ‘Michael Savages loves you.’ I say, ‘Well, that’s good news, I think that’s true.’”
Savage then claimed that President Obama “has not only been flooding America with immigrants who cannot or will not work, he’s bringing in people who have brought back illnesses that were once basically eliminated in America” and offered his help to Trump.
“It’s a disaster to bring in diseased immigrants, don’t you agree?” Savage asked.
“Well that’s what’s happening,” Trump said, “and people don’t like talking about it and certainly it’s not politically correct to talk about it and that’s why they don’t do it, because everything we do today has to do with political correctness. If something’s a little bit off, off just a little bit, they say, ‘Oh, please don’t mention that.’ Even my people tell me ‘don’t mention that’ and I decide to mention things anyway, even though I know it’s going to end up being a firestorm I mention them anyway. But there’s something that’s one of the other elements, and the people are pouring into this country and, in many cases they’re not well people, in many respects.”
