Donald Trump Seeks to Disqualify U.S. Figure Skating Team Members Bound For Winter Olympics

7D793A78-B437-4110-BE2E-2413685A8D77.jpegWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – U.S. President Donald Trump continues to send mixed messages to the American people in as far as his immigration policy is concerned.

After public statements saying that 260,000 Salvadoran and 24,000 Haitian nationals now living in the United States must leave, he recently indicated that he was willing to consider a compromise that would allow undocumented immigrants like the Dreamers (those who were brought to the U.S. as kids by their undocumented parents) to pursue a path towards citizenship.

But now, after the U.S. Olympic figure skating team members were announced, Trump has sent yet another confusing message: skaters that do not look like Americans must be disqualified from representing the U.S. at the upcoming Winter Olympics in South Korea.

About half of the U.S. figure skating team members are of Asian descent.

”We have to show the world that we are Americans,” Trump told The Adobo Chronicles, “and we cannot have foreign-looking skaters standing on the medal stands while the ‘Star-spangled Banner’ is being played.”

Jose, can you see?
