Donald Trump pledged to offer inexperienced playing cards to international graduates of American schools if he’s elected in November ― a shocking growth given his plan for mass deportations for undocumented immigrants and fearmongering about migrants “poisoning the blood” of America.

Yet, there was the previous president taking a uncommon pro-immigrant stance on the “All-In” podcast Thursday. The topic got here up when he was requested if he would allow recruitment of “the best and the brightest” from around the globe if he defeats President Joe Biden.

“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,” Trump stated.

Trump stated it’s “so sad” when the nation surrenders expertise from Harvard University and MIT or “lesser schools, which are phenomenal schools also.”

The presumptive Republican nominee claimed he supposed to advertise the identical coverage when he was president beforehand however acquired derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump, who moments earlier had hyped his efforts to construct a border wall, spoke ruefully of “stories where people graduated from a top college or from a college, and they desperately wanted to stay here, they had a plan for a company, a concept, and they can’t — they go back to India, they go back to China, they do the same basic company in those places.”

“And they become multibillionaires, employ thousands and thousands of people and it could have been done here,” he added.

But hours later, Trump’s marketing campaign press secretary, Karoline Leavitt, walked again his feedback in a extra on-brand response to The New York Times. She stated there could be “an aggressive vetting process” to “exclude all communists, radical Islamists, Hamas supporters, America haters and public charges.” She added that the coverage would goal the “most skilled graduates who can make significant contributions to America.”

Fast-forward to 44:00 for Trump’s school plan:
