Former President Donald Trump claimed Wednesday — without evidence — that people who cross the U.S.-Mexico border bring contagious diseases with them.

“They come as terrorists. There are a lot of terrorists coming and people with very contagious diseases,” Trump said Wednesday night during his interview with New York radio station WABC.

“You know, like you suddenly see that there is a race against tuberculosis. “There is a trend towards things that we have not talked about for years in this country,” Trump added.

Trump made similar claims in a September interview with The National Pulse about diseases coming over the southern border when he said illegal immigrants are “poisoning the blood of our country.”

“It is something very sad for our country. They are poisoning the blood of our country. It’s so bad and people come in with illnesses. “People come with everything they can possibly have,” Trump said in December at a rally in New Hampshire.

In Wednesday’s interview, Trump once again alleged that people crossing the border and entering the United States speak unknown languages.

“We have no idea who they are or where they come from,” the former president said. “We have no idea. They speak languages ​​we don’t even know. We have people with languages ​​we know nothing about. “It’s crazy,” Trump continued.

Much of his violent rhetoric about an out-of-control southern border is routine campaign material. The former president has also repeatedly stated that people crossing the border come from “mental institutions” and “insane asylums.”

Trump frequently references increased migration from countries in South and Central America and promises to impose stricter border regulations. Last Saturday, while speaking at the NRA’s annual convention, Trump said that if he were the leader of a South American country, he would send criminals and prisoners to the United States “faster than them.”

“Those in South America who are sending all their criminals, prisoners and gangs to our country, smartly,” Trump said. “I would do the same if I were there. I would do the same. I would do it faster than them,” he said.

While promising to bolster and work closely with local law enforcement in border communities, Trump has remained vague about what steps he would take to bolster border security. This has not stopped the former president from harsh criticism of the Biden administration’s management of the border, one of the main points in his campaign ads and fundraising emails.
