Donald Trump visits border, will ‘win Hispanic vote’ and ‘hits’ Anderson Cooper

Donald Trump brought his crazy campaign to the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday, insisting he has support from Latino voters despite his controversial comments about immigrants in America.

“I think I’ll win the Hispanic vote,” Trump told reporters after touring the World Trade Bridge in Laredo, Texas. “Over the years, thousands and thousands of Hispanics have worked for me.”

Trump, who met with Laredo officials and law enforcement, was Jesus Olivares, whom Trump said he wanted to hire.

“A lot of what is happening here is because of the fact that Mexico is doing so well, it is just doing beyond what anybody thought. And I don’t know if that’s good for the United States, but it’s good for Mexico,” Trump said, adding later “There’s great danger with the illegals.”

Donald TrumpTrump is leading some national polls for the Republican presidential nomination overcoming widely condemned comments about Arizona Senator John McCain and attacking Anderson Cooper, saying “people don’t trust you and the media.”

“I am leading across the board,” Trump said in the interview. “And then you hit me with this poll that I didn’t see before, where oh, gee, it’s not even that kind of a poll. All i know is I have a very big group of support. And I think one of the reasons.”

“Let me tell you. The people don’t trust you and the people don’t trust the media. And I understand why,” Trump lectured Cooper.

Trump said he hopes to continue to run as a Republican and said he thinks he can win the nomination.

“I want to run as a Republican,” he said.

The union representing border patrol agents said they were backing out of the tour before he arrived. Trump maintain his schedule, visited the bridge over the Rio Grande instead of going on a tour of border facilities with agents as originally planned.

Trump’s campaign said in a statement that the union backed out because its leaders “were totally silenced directly from superiors in Washington who do not want people to know how bad it is on the border — every bit as bad as Mr. Trump has been saying.”

“They are being silenced, and are very unhappy about it, as told directly to Mr. Trump,” the campaign said. “It can only be assumed that there are things the politicians in Washington do not want Americans to see or discuss. It shows that we are not even safe in our own country.”
