Trump suggested creating a 'migrant league of fighters' to UFC

Former President Donald Trump recently spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition's "Road to Majority" conference in Washington, where he made controversial comments about setting up a migrant league of fighters. During his speech, Trump mentioned Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), and suggested the idea of having a league of migrant fighters compete against regular fighters, with the champions facing off against each other.

While Trump's comments were met with mixed reactions, with some viewing it as a joke and others criticizing it as insensitive and dehumanizing, White himself dismissed it as such. Trump's focus on immigration has been a central theme in his political career, and he has often used harsh language when discussing migrants. This includes referring to them as "nasty, mean," and "tough."

President Joe Biden's campaign quickly responded to Trump's remarks, calling him a "convicted felon" and criticizing his stance on immigration. The campaign spokesperson, Sarafina Chitika, stated that Trump's comments showcased his extremism and posed a threat to American freedoms.
