President Donald Trump has reacted to homophobic attack Empire star Jussie Smollett suffered a few days ago.
While being interviewed by veteran journalist April Ryan in the White House, Trump was asked about his thoughts on the horrific attack that left Smollett with fractured ribs.
Trump responded, saying: “It was horrible. I’ve seen it, last night. I think that’s horrible. It doesn’t get worse, as far as I’m concerned.”
At one point, Trump started speaking about the border wall that he wants to build which has no correlation to Smollett’s attack.
“As far as the people are concerned, many of those people wanted me to stay out, but I didn’t wanna do it cause people were getting hurt. What I think is the worst sin of all is the fact that we’re allowing people to come into this country and sell drugs and human traffic and do all of these horrible things, that if we had the simplicity of a well-constructed, beautiful barrier or wall, they wouldn’t be able to come into our country.”
He further continued, saying: “That to me is the great sin. Everybody knows it works. I watched this morning, early in the morning, somebody trying to justify walls are immoral. If walls are immoral, maybe we should take down all the walls that are built right now. You will see a mess like you’ve never seen before.”
