President Donald Trump stunned his fellow world leaders at the G7 meeting when he said he would ship “25 million” Mexicans to Japan, which would result in Prime Minister Shinzo Abe losing his next election.

During the gathering in Quebec — which ended with Trump leaving early and refusing to sign the traditional joint communique — the president was talking about what he called Europe’s immigration problem when he turned his attention to the Japanese leader.

“Shinzo, you don’t have this problem, but I can send you 25 million Mexicans and you’ll be out of office very soon,” Trump said, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a senior EU official who was in the room.

I think Trump was making a rhetorical point;he wasn’t threatening Japan for real!

For a self-respecting nation, replacing your own people with those of another heritage is not a viable option. The President was making a joke, which would be understood as such by most Japanese.

Just as we thought. There are NOT 11 million Mexicans in this country. The President knows there are 25 million...and so do the lying Democrats and Cheap Labor Republicans.

Frau Merkel should have upped the offer. “Hell, Abe. I’ll send you 30 million muslims.”
