Trump may be a Republican, but he isn’t a fan of every Republican.
He is taking on both the Democrats and the establishment of the Republican Party.
And he just destroyed a RINO with one brutal tweet.
Trump Destroys A RINO
RINO is short for “Republican in name only.”
It is a label for those in the party who act like Democrats.
And in the current day, it is for anybody in opposition to Trump’s agenda who is in the party.
One of the biggest RINOs in office right now is House Speaker Paul Ryan.
He actively speaks out against and opposes President Trump.
Trump is making waves after saying he is going to end birthright citizenship with an executive order.
Trump says he’s talked to counsel and believes he can do it.
But Ryan isn’t so sure.
Speaking out, he tells Trump “you cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order.”
And in response, Trump didn’t respond how Ryan would expect.
He took to Twitter and took a brutal swipe at the Speaker of the House, saying:
“Paul Ryan should be focusing on holding the Majority rather than giving his opinions on Birthright Citizenship, something he knows nothing about! Our new Republican Majority will work on this, Closing the Immigration Loopholes and Securing our Border!”
This statement is sure to ruin Ryan’s day.
Why Is Trump Ending Birthright Citizenship?
Trump is calling for an end to birthright citizenship because of how crazy a policy it is.
It makes no sense and has no application in the modern day.
Birthright citizenship grants citizenship to anybody born in the United States.
So all an illegal immigrant needs to do is birth their child on U.S. soil for their child to become a U.S. citizen.
This policy stems from the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment.
And its adoption came after the Civil War.
It was a way to grant freed slaves U.S. citizenship.
Its intention was never to allow illegal migrants to gain citizenship by birthing their children on U.S. soil.
So Trump has good reason to do away with it.
And Paul Ryan should be with him completely.
But instead, he is standing with the Democrats, giving them fodder to attack the president.
Ryan is also underplaying the importance of Trump’s call in response to the migrant caravan.
The Migrant Caravan May Abuse The Policy
The thousands of migrants working their way across Mexico might try to use birthright citizenship.
If they aren’t stopped, and cross into the U.S., it gives them an easy way to gain access to welfare programs.
All they need to do is have a child on U.S. soil, and they are set with all the welfare they need.
They are coming to the U.S. for that very reason.
If they stop in Mexico, they won’t gain welfare.
The U.S. is the largest welfare state in the world.
Birthright citizenship gives is a huge magnet for illegal immigrants for that reason.
Do you support ending birthright citizenship?
