At event, Trump suggests tariffs against countries, including China, for immigration

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Thursday that he may impose tariffs on countries, including China, that do not control the flow of undocumented immigrants from their territories to the United States, if he wins the presidential election. of the United States in November.

Trump made the comments at a campaign event in Arizona while answering a question from the audience and did not specify the amount of tariff he would impose in such a scenario.

Asked how he could stem the flow of immigrants coming to the U.S. illegally, Trump said, “We have tremendous economic power,” asserting that if a country, like China, doesn’t help stem the flow of immigrants into the U.S., “we have these things called tariffs.”

Trump added that he hopes he won’t need to use tariffs to curb illegal immigration, but warned that if other countries don’t help reduce it, he could “put hellish tariffs on this country” if re-elected.

Border security and immigration have emerged as major issues for Americans in the run-up to the Nov. 5 election, where Trump will face incumbent U.S. President Joe Biden in a rematch of the 2020 White House race.
