Trump Tries To Answer Anchor's Question, Starts Speaking In Potato

A local TV anchor for Detroit’s WJBK-TV tried to pin Donald Trump down for a source over the former President’s claim about crime statistics in Venezuela. The anchor, Roop Raj, asked Trump for a source over his repeated claim of why there has been a 72 percent reduction in crime in the last year in Venezuela. According to the twice-impeached former President, it’s because they sent all of their criminals to this country. This is reminiscent of Trump in 2016 claiming that Mexico “isn’t sending their best” people. I think Raj, like the rest of us, knows there isn’t a sender department in each country.

“One stat before we go,” the former President said. “Venezuela was very crime-ridden. They announced the other day [a] 72 percent reduction in crime in the last year. You know why? They moved all their criminals from Venezuela right into the good old U.S.A., and Biden let them do it. It’s a disgrace.”

Note: There is no evidence to back that up, but Republicans keep parroting that claim.

Raj asked Trump where he got those stats, so he tried to say words and ended up speaking in Potato.

“Uhhhhhhh, I guess I get them from the papers in this case,” Trump insisted. “I think it’s a federal statement or, well, they’re coming actually from Venezuela. They’re coming from Venezuela.”

“We’ll have to check on that,” Raj shot back, then invited him to debate President Joe Biden in Michigan.

“I’ll be there, I’ll be there,” Trump told Raj. “Thank you very much.”
