Trump blames Obama for MS-13's rise

Trump blames Obama for MS-13's rise

It's appropriate that golf eventually came up during the marathon interview, because it took place overlooking a golf course - specifically, at the Trump International Golf Links and Hotel on Ireland's west coast.

And Obama took multiple actions against MS-13 - which dates back to 1980s Los Angeles - in an effort to reduce its USA footprint. However, then-candidate Trump was hyper-critical of Obama's penchant for golf, even suggesting on the campaign trail that he wouldn't play golf were he elected.

MS-13 is a street gang based largely in Los Angeles, although it has operations in a large number of U.S. states. By 2006, the group was in at least 33 states, according to Federal Bureau of Investigation material at the time.

Trump often hosted campaign events at his properties, and foreign diplomats have previously said they stay at his Washington, D.C., hotel to try to curry favor. Membership estimates were as high as 10,000 and the bureau expected that to increase. Exactly six minutes earlier, the president was tweeting about how impressed he remains about his Electoral College victory a year ago. As a result, these American-groomed gang members taught what they learned to new members - and helped the gang to flourish internationally. But he might decide instead to weekend at Trump Tower in NY or at one of his other residences - excursions that would also bear significant costs.

Trump being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on January 20th, 2017.

The Department of Treasury labeled the street gang an global criminal group in 2012, and sanctioned six El Salvadoran leaders the following year.

He says tougher enforcement of immigration and border crimes will curb gang activity. The Central American gang developed by Salvadorans escaping a civil war in the 1980s.

Mr Obama deported more than 2.5 million people during his term in office - more than any other president in history (although that record is complicated by a change in the official definition of "deportation"). Obama administration lawyers at the time said the release was voluntary and not required by law. "Simply bashing President Obama, that works with the people who were with him already".

"Felons, not families. Criminals, not children".

"We need to start dealing with this, not just on a one by one basis, but really getting to the root of the problem", he added.
