During a Fox News segment on “The Faulkner Focus,” tensions rose as former Republican and Democratic party officials clashed over former President Donald Trump’s immigration policy. Host Harris Faulkner initiated the discussion by highlighting polling data indicating a decline in support for President Joe Biden among black and Latino voters. Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Press Secretary Jose Aristimuno accused Trump of harboring dictatorial aspirations and advocating for the deportation of Latinos, sparking a heated debate.

“Immigration matters. It all matters,” Aristimuno said. “Donald Trump said he wants mass deportations for Latinos. If you’re a Latino American watching Fox News today, he wants to deport you. He wants you out.”

“No, that’s not true, Jose. That’s not true and you know it,” former Republican National Committee press secretary Cassie Smedile said.
