Following the police murder of a 17-year-old who resisted detention during a traffic stop, riots broke out in France. There were over 180 arrests, and a number of structures, including police stations and institutions, were set on fire. Trump explained that he had warned Macron about this situation during their initial meeting.

Trump has previously announced travel restrictions. In 2017, he implemented a ban that affected seven Muslim-populated nations with ties to terrorism. Later, the prohibition was expanded to include Venezuela and North Korea. In 2018, it was approved by the Supreme Court. Trump emphasized the significance of ensuring that immigrants share American values and assimilate into American culture. He expressed a desire to prevent the entry of individuals with anti-American sentiments or criminal records.
Additionally, Trump criticized the concept of open borders and questioned its benefits for the United States. He cited an increase in the crime rate and the cost of accommodation as negative consequences of increased immigration. He mentioned the recent collapse of the Dutch government as a result of disagreements over immigration policies and the rise of anti-immigrant parties in a number of European nations.
According to a Wall Street Journal analysis, migration to prosperous nations has increased by 80 percent compared to pre-pandemic levels. This is due to factors such as loosened travel restrictions, labor shortages in developed nations, and deteriorating economic conditions in developing nations.
Trump's latest campaign proposition seeks to restrict the entry of "communists" and "Marxists" into the United States. He intends to use a section of the Immigration and Nationality Act to deny entry to anyone with ties to these ideologies. This proposal resembles Trump's previous travel ban aimed at Muslim-majority nations, which was rescinded by President Joe Biden.
Trump emphasized the significance of immigrants loving the country they desire to call home during a speech at a conference in Washington. He stated that those who visit the country to enjoy it must be in love with it. Trump's stance on immigration reflects his dedication to safeguarding the United States and its citizens as a whole.
