Former President Donald Trump, known for his divisive rhetoric, has once again stirred controversy with inflammatory remarks suggesting migrants should compete in a cage-fighting league.

This proposal, made during a Christian conference in Washington, has reignited concerns about his views on immigration according to Bild.

Trump suggested creating a league where migrants would battle each other, drawing parallels to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (U.F.C.), a brutal sport initially banned in several U.S. states.

Backlash and Response from Biden

Trump's remarks, seen as derogatory by many, have drawn swift condemnation. President Joe Biden seized on the opportunity to criticize Trump ahead of their televised debate.

Biden condemned Trump's comments as a "rambling, confused tirade" particularly inappropriate at a conference promoting Christian values.

Biden's campaign team also emphasized that Trump's words exemplify why he should not return to the White House.

Political Fallout and Public Opinion

As the controversy unfolds, the question remains whether Trump's remarks will harm his political standing or bolster support among his base.

Immigration policy remains a contentious issue in American politics, with seven out of ten Americans expressing dissatisfaction with President Biden's approach.

The ongoing crisis at the border continues to dominate discussions alongside economic concerns, shaping the narrative of the upcoming elections in 2024.
