President Donald Trump said that certain members of Congress “hate” the United States during a two-hour speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday.
Trump spoke about immigration at length during his free-wheeling, off-the-cuff speech. He said that he would be in favor of people migrating to the United States, so long as they comply with immigration laws and are selected by merit.
He added that immigrants should also “be people that can love our country, not hate our country.”
“We have people in Congress, right now we have people in Congress, that hate our country,” the President said. It’s unclear if he meant specifically immigrants serving in Congress.
