Trump Makes U-Turn, Promises ‘Skilled’ Foreign Students Green Cards Upon Graduation

Twitter Permanently Bans Trump

Donald Trump, former United States President, says he will ensure foreign students get automatic green cards after graduation from universities in the country if he returns to the White House.

Trump, who is eyeing a return to the White House, spoke in a podcast hosted by David Sacks, a Silicon Valley investor who backs the former President’s campaign.

Repeating his frequent criticisms of how high levels of immigration are an “invasion of our country,” Trump made a shocking turn when Jason Calacanis, another investor who hosts the podcast, asked him to promise that his policies would not restrict the country’s ability to attract the brightest minds.

Calacanis based his request on the country’s need for skilled workers, noting that immigrants comprise a higher percentage of talented recruits.

“I do promise, but I happen to agree, and that is why I promised.

“What I want to do and what I will do is — you graduate from a college, I think you should get automatically, as part of your diploma, a green card to be able to stay in this country, and that includes junior colleges.”

“Anybody who graduates from a college you go in there for two years or four years, if you graduate or you get a doctorate degree from a college —you should be able to stay in this country,” Trump said.

Following his comments, Karoline Leavitt, his campaign’s press secretary, issued a statement saying there would be an “aggressive vetting process” that would “exclude all communists, radical Islamists, Hamas supporters, America haters, and public charges.”

The policy, Leavitt said, would apply only to the “most skilled graduates who can make significant contributions to America,”
