Any immigration merit in the Trumps?

Donald Trump’s recent comments again prove that he and his base are the least self aware people to ever walk the planet.

He seems oblivious to the fact that if America had a merit-based immigration system only, Trump and his offspring would not be here. That would be a good thing.

In 1905, Trump’s grandfather had his German citizenship revoked for tax evasion and being a draft dodger. Despite his criminal, unpatriotic behavior — not to mention his not wanting to leave Germany — America let him in.

Trump’s father, much like Trump, imported his mother from Scotland despite her having zero skills or education.

Trump’s first wife’s donation to American prosperity was to take photos in nice clothes and have silver-spooned anchor babies.

And his current wife reportedly came here without the proper visa to work. What was her merit? Her skill was taking her clothing off for money as a model.
