While pro-Palestinian demonstrators continue to pound the streets across the Western world, Donald Trump has decided to throw his own stone into the pond. During a dinner to raise funds for his campaign, Republican candidate Donald Trump promised that if elected, he would expel foreign students participating in protest movements on American campuses, according to comments reported by the Washington Post. He also welcomed the action of the New York police which dislodged pro-Palestinian demonstrators from Columbia University in early May.

Donald Trump promised to end this “ radical revolution », according to him, by expelling the foreign students who demonstrate. “ Any foreign student who demonstrates will be expelled from the country », adding that this measure would encourage them to “ behave correctly “. The Republican candidate also expressed his desire to bring back the pro-Palestinian movement “ 25 to 30 years ago » if he was elected to the White House.
