Trump Sends National Guard to the Border, Attacks Amazon: A Closer Look

Trump Sends National Guard to the Border, Attacks Amazon: A Closer Look


-The Trump administration
announced a plan today to send the National Guard
to the border. Meanwhile, Trump has kept up
his attacks on Amazon. For more on this it’s time for
“A Closer Look.” [ Cheers and applause ] This has been a week
with Trump indulging his various obsessions
and one of those obsessions remains our border
with Mexico. He’s been fuming
about a caravan of immigrants headed here through Mexico
and claiming that the border is essentially
a lawless territory. -Hopefully Congress
will get their act together and get in and create
some very powerful laws, like Mexico has
and like Canada has and like almost
all countries have. We don’t have laws,
we have catch and release. You catch and then
you immediately release. It’s like we have no border, because we had
Obama make changes, President Obama made changes that basically created
no border. It’s called catch and release. -That’s right.
It’s called catch and release. Or as Trump used to call it,
marriage. [ Laughter ] [ Cheers and applause ] [ Whistles ] -Whoo! -[ As Trump] I don’t know
how to tell you this, but it’s time for release. [ Laughter ] [ Normal voice ]
In reality, under Trump, Immigration
and Customs Enforcement has massively ramped up
the tensions of undocumented immigrants,
in may cases tearing apart families
and deporting people who have lived here for decades. But this week, Trump called for
yet another aggressive step, he wants the military
to guard the border. -We are going to be doing
some things — I’ve been speaking with
General Mattis — we’re going to be doing things
militarilety until we can have a wall
and proper security, we’re gonna be guarding
our border with the military. We are preparing
for the military to secure our border between
Mexico and the United States. We have a meeting on it
in a little while with General Mattis. -Oh, great another thing for
General Mattis’ to-do list. He’s already planning
your dumb military parade, now you want him to
guard the border. Why don’t you just
combine the two and have the parade
along the Mexican boarder? Have you ever? I mean, think about it. Have you ever tried to cross
the street during a parade? [ Laughter ] Immigrants would walk up
to the border and be like, “Aw, man, this is today?” [ Laughter ] “Oh, bagpipes.
Let’s get out of here.” Also, could we go back to this
part of the clip for a second? -I’ve been speaking with
General Mattis, we’re going to be doing things
militarilety. -What? [ Laughter ] Was that a word
or did your teeth try to escape your mouth again? Trump is less articulate
than a 7-year-old in the back of his mom’s sedan
after dental surgery. [ Laughter ] [ Imitates being under
anesthesia ] Is this real life? [ Normal voice ] Now today the
Trump administration announced a plan to send National Guard
troops to the border. And lately,
Trump has been obsessed with this idea
of militarizing the border. An idea he floated last week, when he said the U.S.-Mexico
border should be just as fortified as the border
between North and South Korea. -Look at Korea,
we have a border at Korea. We have a wall of soldiers. We don’t get paid very much
for this, do we? We have — You look at that,
nobody comes through. But our own border,
we don’t take care of it. Look, North and South Korea. Thirty-two thousand soldiers. They’re finest equipment,
barbed wire all over the pla– We protect that whole thing,
nobody comes through, but our country,
we don’t do. Things are changing, folks. -I’m sorry.
What is this? [ Laughter ] I think he he wants to [bleep]
the border. [ As Trump]
Have you seen the border? Oh, she is 34 — 24 — 34 Oh, it’s a beautiful border. [ Cheers and applause ] Beautiful.
We’ve got to guard it. You’ve got to gu–
You need the military to guard it because people
want to [bleep] it. [ Laughter ] Get away. [ Normal voice ] While Trump
fixates on the border and mumbles half-baked ideas about sending
the military there, he’s also been nursing
another obsession, his growing anger toward Amazon. Now, as you might recall,
it wasn’t so long ago that the republicans were
against the presidents intervening in the economy. Like when they relentlessly
bashed President Obama for favoring certain companies
over others. And picking winners
and losers on everything from green energy to financial
reform to the stimulus. -We do not believe we should be
governed by our betters. That elites in Washington should
make all those big decisions. That they should be picking
winners and losers. -The federal government
should not be picking winners and losers
in the marketplace. -It is not government’s role to
pick the winners and losers. -When we talk about Washington
picking winners and losers, look no further than Dodd-Frank. -We have got to
get this government and this administration out of
picking winners and losers, because all they pick
are losers. -I had a friend who said
you don’t just pick the winners and losers,
you pick the losers. -Oh, my God. Mitt Romney is almost as bad
at landing a zinger as Trump is at saying
the word “militarily.” [ Laughter ] Romney would be terrible
at “Snaps.” [ As Romney ] Your mother is so
fat that her doctor is a bit concerned
about her cholesterol. Rightly so, I might add. [ Normal voice ] Of course,
it turned out that just four years later
republicans elected a guy whose favorite two words
in the English language are winner and loser. -Governor Pence,
just come here for a second. This guy is a winner. What a group of losers we have. The great Bobby Knight. He had the last undefeated
season in college basketball, he’s a winner. They’re declaring Marco Rubio
the big loser of the night, which is true. Jack Nicklaus, who endorsed me,
I love Jack. I love Jack. His record’s unbelievable. He won it four times,
top ten 18 tim– I mean, this guy is a win-ner. These people are losers. I said Bill Crystal is a loser. Bill Crystal’s a loser. Johnny Damon was a champ,
he was a winner. We have a bunch of babies
running our country, folks. We have a bunch of losers. They’re losers.
They’re babies. -Only Donald Trump could
equate babies with losers. [ As Trump ]
Babies, they’re losers. They don’t own any real estate. They’re all virgins. [ Normal voice ] And now Trump
has apparently found a new loser to attack —
Amazon. The tech behemoth
owned by Jeff Bezos. Bezos also owns
the Washington Post, which has done
a lot of hard-hitting reporting on Trump and that has
apparently irked the president, who has been tweeting
obsessively about the company. -Trump versus the tech titan. According to Vanity Fair’s
sources close to the president say he is
“discussing a way to escalate his twitter attacks
on Amazon to further damage the company.” -You write and I’m gonna quote
for everybody here, “He’s off the hook on this.” According to sources
that you spoke with. -Yeah.
-“It’s war. He gets obsessed with something, and now he’s obsessed with
Bezos… Trump is like,
how can I F with him?” -How can you F with him? I don’t know,
do the same thing you did to the rest of the country
and run for president of Amazon. [ Laughter ] That’s Trump’s only. [ Cheers and applause ] That’s Trump’s only motivation
is f-ing with people. If he weren’t the president,
he’d be breaking into people’s houses and leaving
loose LEGOs on the stairs. For weeks, now, Trump has
repeatedly bashed Amazon for supposedly cheating the
Post Office out of lost revenue, which is not true. The Post Office says
they actually make money delivering Amazon’s packages. Trump’s behavior is that
of a petulant autocrat compulsively attacking his
enemies by lying about them. But here’s the thing,
despite his rhetoric, his own government
is actually helping Amazon. For one thing,
Amazon benefited greatly from those massive tax cuts
Trump pushed through last year. And on top of that,
the New Republic reported that under Trump’s watch
Amazon secured a change to federal procurement laws
“that will allow the Defense Department to
purchase all commercial items on the Amazon marketplace.” I’m sorry,
but it’s not exactly reassuring that the Pentagon
is working with a company that already has
it’s own army of drones and a leader who looks like
the ruthless jazz instructor from “Whiplash”. [ Laughter ] And let’s not forget, this is also the company
that makes the Amazon Echo. A product which,
according to several real videos posted last month,
has started creepily laughing for no reason at all. -Amazon Echo users
are reporting that Alexa has been letting out
a spontaneous and rather creepy laugh. Completely unprompted,
imagine that. Some are even saying
that they’ll hear random chuckles
coming out of their Alexa in the dark long after
they’ve gone to bed. Now, just to give you an idea
of what this sounds like, take a listen. -[ Alexa laughs ] [ Alexa laughs ] -So, either the singularity
has already happened and artificially intelligent
robots have become self aware, or Alexa just found out
that Donald Trump is president. [ Laughter ] That’s probably
how Trump’s Alexa responds to him
whenever he talks to it. -We’re gonna be doing things
militarilety. -[ Alexa laughs ] [ Laughter ] -For years. For years republicans
spun a wild fantasy about an imperial president
interfering in the free marketplace by
picking winners and losers, and now they’ve got
a president who is actually doing that
and their silence is deafening. Trump is a wannabe autocrat who
thinks he can rule unilaterally. Whether it’s on the border,
economically, or… -Militarilety. -This has been
“A Closer Look”. [ Cheers and applause ]

  1. I have just read that trump had an affair with his maid in Trump Towers and had a baby…..I wonder if he had the baby deported as an illegal???????

  2. Many years ago I remember Hands Across America…

    Is this what Trump wants to do along the mexican border?

  3. I can't stand the sight or the sound of Trump. If I had to listen to him for a full minute I'd fly into a rage. It almost makes me pity the people around him until I remember that they're scum.

  4. Who's going to pay for all this Craziness? Troops, national guard, walls, etc. I'd gladly chip in for a couple padded cells.

  5. Trump is lying about the Mexican border. The number of illegal immigrants is at a 40 year low. There are more illegal immigrants leaving than coming in. There is no need for walls or the army to patrol. Trump's measures will just interfere with the flow of Mexicans leaving. Most illegal immigrants enter on a tourist visa by commercial airliner, not by burro. The wall will do nothing to deter them.

  6. Drumpf is such a fucking idiot I can't stand to listen to him. How god damn stupid are people who think this imbecile makes any sense? He repeats the same thing over and over again and its total nonsense.

  7. Portugal out of NATO! WE PREFER THAT OUR ALLIES WILL BE RUSSIA CHINA IRAN AND SYRIA! Greetings and peace to Syria and yemen friends from Portugal! hating USA israel and Uk

  8. When I listen to this I feel like I'm still at the mental hospital listening to everyone's crazy life stories and magnetic propulsion is the future of all energy when used in the correct manner wtfu movement help me help you help me

  9. soldiers guarding between North and South Korea?!?!? Um…. more like millions of landmines with a few soldiers. dumbass.

  10. Obama's been out of power for 2 years you're almost done with your term when do you stop blaming him?

  11. Using a standing army in the continental US is an Abomination to the forefathers in the Constitution I thought a republican would know that

  12. Beezus and Amazon should sue Trump personally for the damage inflicted on his reputation and Company

  13. The hypocritical Republicans take one talkin point and hammered home like Nazi propaganda no wonder why they're beating the do well Democrats

  14. I've been saying that about our border! (Canadian Border).. we need to put our military to work guarding our border!

  15. Seth is the funniest. Especially when he talks of donald Chump, But then again he picks donald Chump to talk about, who cant make funnies of donald Chump and his XXX woman?The worst wanabe pres ever!!!🤔😁😁😁😆

  16. What’s. with the never ending hand gestures? When I was a. Child trying to argue with my mother by throwing my hands up and down she very calmly said
    “put your hands in your pockets and use words to express yourself”. Thanks Mom

  17. Trump better make up his mind: first, he said that the separation policy, was a Democratic policy – a law they created, and he was forced to follow, and now he's saying that the Democrats made it so they have no borders. Idiot. I watch from Canada, and I say at least once as I watch Trump: idiot. But that's okay; apparently Trumpsters don't have a memory.

  18. what does Trump mean when he says" we have a border between north ans south korea?" where does he get WE? is he from Korea?

  19. I agree, the US does have a big baby running it. By the way, what would you call a "business man" with 6 bankruptcies (and it would have been more, if he hadn't removed his name from other companies). Loser???

  20. Wow, I'm guessing soon you're going to have Fox and the GOP congratulating Trump on successfully saying a large word. I actually will not be surprised if I see that.
    Fox: "And he had no problem saying 3, 4, and even 5 syllable words! Militarily, anonymous . . . THIS is the president we always knew President Trump could be." Like when he managed to have a meeting without talking like a petulant toddler. "Wow, he got through the entire meeting without insulting anyone!"
    Wow, United States, how the mighty have fallen, and how you have lowered, lowered, lowered the bar.

  21. WHAT A FUCKING MORON!!!!! N.K. has soldiers to guard the border, to prevent THEIR OWN PEOPLE FROM ESCAPING!!!!! It's a DICTATORSHIP that has half of it's people starving TO DEATH, and SEVERELY BEATS those that try!!!! INCLUDING CHILDREN AND BABIES!!! How can Americans have this complete fucking idiot running their country??? BTW, am I the ONLY ONE who clued into the fact that he kept saying "WE don't let anyone through" when referring to North Korea's border????
    Here is the person that President Trump said he is "in love with", the person he said "loves his people", or at least the results of his actions:

  22. Ever notice that Trump refers to the military, but Ive rarely heard him named the branches, if he knows. Army Navy Air Force Marines Coast Guard.

    He does know Space Force, which does not exist except in Trump’s mind.

  23. What is wrong with all you people, do you know what will happen if this caravan get through? I can guarantee there will be more. You are all so brainwashed by fake media, and I will be heading to the boarder with the bikers to protect the future of all Americans.

  24. 聖诞快樂,,,吔。
    但,,,为什麼接纳槍械砲弹在社会社区内,反而不会接受接待接纳己推選出而结合,,,?,是否和北韓样而使得百姓慢慢就比社会社区中槍械还更容易讓百姓接受接纳呢,,,?,为什麼百姓会接受包容槍械而不包容接受接纳众推選出而结合,,,呢。
    不如机器人的批発商,以己所喜的名星像皃製作出保宅卫,一定会比蕷果更多大人所喜歡,而不喜歡的像皃机器人,送给对方保宅卫民,一定会慢慢喜歡对方,,,?,但,若所送的机器人损壞了,哪一定是製造商有问题易損壞,,,的。

  25. Of course T hates Bezos! Bezos is a very successful entrepreneur and extremely rich so the Fucker TRUMP the TURD wants to take him down.

  26. 0:48 … well yeah… because you depended on cheap exploitable Mexican labour that can't fight back or organize for fear of deportation… i mean are you going to spend all day bent over in a California field for a few cents and hours just so some rich prick in la can have there latest fad diet satisfied? … i mean this is the system …

  27. Of course the orange idiot would cite Korea on "border security" because he's too much of an ignorant jackass to KNOW the real reason behind it. He just wants to emulate his favorite Dictator overall.

  28. I am from Tijuana, i live 10 minutes away from the border.
    Hondurans got really aggressive today and the military defended the border with rubber bullets and gas. Hondurans invaded Tijuana, they are terrorizing our city.

  29. Every Trump supporter should be forced to spend 10 days feeding Trump's steak for dinner…..maybe they'd understand the kind of B.S. Trump serves them

  30. These shows are going to have to quit with the personal attacks if they want to appeal to a moderate audience. They criticize politicians for attacking someone's looks or personal life… And yet here we are calling the president a 7 yr old on novacaine. -20 respect

  31. With allegations sticking,
    and the impeachment clock ticking,
    Donald has to think,
    "this is gonna stink".
    He just hopes, there is grease, for the dicking.

  32. New Spain, Enticements and Mitigation Report. 24816ABXAU.
    This report states that all succeeding militia, whether flanking, countering, artillery, or engineering, at this point, November 7, 1818, belong to territories of Britain. All resulting ownership of land or articles is hereby recorded for instill of loan and proctor by resulting governments of the takeover and sale of land and community. Further enticements and mitigation information is to be shared and scrutinized in tactics of informative warfare by the citizens of the U.S.A. or any needful militia as the nature of mitigations is to restrain and entice into further battle and scorn or punishment and lack of economic development. As the need for the wandering and poor is usually met by the armies of the world we are simply not an army but a watchful eye unto the enticements of battle. I could not be more disgusted by the level of marketing and perspective by both WALT and ASVAB. The U.S. would simply have an infrastructure suitable to its size and communication capability. The reasons for economic hardships belong to investors and workloads are simply too overbearing for a humanitarian conducive progress. If it's not the militia then it's the workforce. I cannot tell which is worse or more dangerous.
    Fake News, Article 1A.

  33. Canada does NOT have immigration laws any stronger than other countries. otherwise we wouldn/t have so many fucking US citizens here !!! I/m willing to put a wall up to keep the US OUT !!!

  34. Has Trump ever BEEN to the US-Mexico border? It's not a lawless place of freedom. There are people working there day and night to stop illegal immigration and, more importantly in my opinion, the drug cartels (who TUNNEL UNDER THE HIGHWAY or just go through the regular border crossings with documentation. Why does everyone seem to ignore that part?)
    It still seems to me that a better solution to stopping illegal immigration would be to work with those other countries to make them safer and more pleasant places to live. If people could get enough money to survive on, or if they didn't feel like their lives were constantly in danger, then fewer of them would try to come to the U.S. Why do we not try to work with Mexico and the other countries to the south to help improve their situation? It would cost time and money, but so would building a wall and sending all the troops down there.

  35. I dont think that trump was born but instead congealed in gutter filled with confederate soldiers blood while a racist fairy animated a drunk pumkin.

  36. Seth Meyers think of this: By portraying Trump in your jaunty manner you may be helping to lodge this mentally unbalanced tyrant deeper into this society. IT IS NOT A FUNNY MATTER in any way what-so-ever. You are trying to provide entertainment on a serious crisis. We don't need people to laugh and quickly forget about this situation. The service only seems to benefit you. The results are different but the motives are similar to Trump's. IT IS NOT A FUNNY

  37. It kills trump to know that Obama was a better president on his worse day in office than trump is on any one of his short, sociopathic, narcissistic, paranoid, delusional, grandiose, illterate, racist, hate filled tweeting, days in Sorry donny, you just don't messure up!

  38. alexa was creepy before it started laughing.Amachine that records your conversations and then sends them to god knows who now thats creepy

  39. 1. Why does Trump always sound like he's explaining sex to a 5-7 year old?
    2. Is he aware that the north side of the North and South Korea border is heavily mined? Hopefully not or we'll find our side of the border heavily mined. Maybe that's the solution. Tell him the border is mined so no need for wall. Then use some old Korea or Vietnam deactivated mines. I mean, it's not like he's gpnna step on one to see if it works. Then every month somebody can give him a report of decreasing numbers of immigrants being blown up and he can brag his strategy is working.
    Everybody can go back to work; he can be impeached and convicted or indicted, tried and convicted and we can get his fat, white, hairless ass out of D.C. and hopefully in jail.

  40. Why is it we feel we have to correct everything this jackass says??? Don't you get he's an illiterate bumbling idiot!!!! Our country is in danger !!!

  41. Trump could have gone down in the history books as one of the great leaders if instead pushing for a dumb 20 billion wall use that same money to fix homeless, veterans, poverty, education and healthcare. But no he's stuck on having something with his name slapped on it you can see from space.

  42. This POTUS news conference is NOT about Whatever: it is about advertising Trump's mouth hole for blow jobs. Trump gives presidential blow jobs to high rollers for an astounding amount of money & he wants the customer to know what kind of lip work they are getting.

  43. Trump is stupid, a narcissist and a psychopath. With Bolton by his side he will provoke Iran and blame them for his surgical strike! Iran was following Obama’s contract. For no reason trump is harassing Iran with crippling sanctions. A little skirmish will give trump the excuse to strike without asking Congress and without asking the public. In our name atrocities are being committed.

  44. Trump needs to go to prison and have bubba wash his mouth out with soap. He is a psychopath and will act like a king. He is dangerous. We will suffer the wrath of the world when he tortures, provokes, falsely accuses his victims and strikes Iran. He is unstable, ignorant, stupid and a psychopath. We will will suffer because he is our president.

  45. Amazon has made Bazos richer than Trump – so Trump wants him f–ked with . probably the only work he can say with four letters
