John Oliver, host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” blasted President Trump and his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program during Sunday’s episode.
Oliver first pointed out how it appears that President Trump has no real plan.
In a 2015 interview, Trump spoke to NBC News’s Chuck Todd about DREAMers.
“They have to go. We will work with them, they have to go. We will do it, and we will expedite it so people can come back in…Chuck, it will work out so well, you’ll be so happy. In four years you’re going to interview me and you’re going to say, ‘What a great job you’ve done, President Trump,” Trump said.
Oliver chimed in after the video, saying, “But that is not a plan! Saying they have to go, but then they can maybe come back in, and ending sounding like he’s trying to hypnotize Chuck Todd: ‘It will work out so well, you’ll be so happy, in four years you’re going to say ‘What a great job you’ve done, President Trump,’ now when I snap my fingers you’re going to wake up and wet your pants.’”
Oliver then slammed Trump for saying “we’re going to make a lot of happy people” while speaking about his decision to end DACA.
“OK listen, because this is important: Any time Trump says he’s going to make people happy, or that you’re going to be happy in the future, that means he has got nothing and he’s trying to end the conversation. Remember, that’s how he shut down Chuck Todd on the plane. And he doesn’t just do it with immigration, he does it with everything,” Oliver said.
