Donald Trump on human trafficking:
“Nobody knew too much about it until recently. It’s been going on for a million years, actually.”
First, he claims that “nobody knew too much about human trafficking until recently.” Seriously? What about slavery in the United States? That was human trafficking, was it not? The American Civil War was fought over slavery 160 years ago.
Human trafficking today is, in effect, modern-day slavery. It involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor, including for the commercial sex trade. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked in countries around the world, including the United States.
Then he claims that “it’s been going on for a million years.” That’s remarkable, given that the earliest fossils of Homo sapiens (modern humans beings) only date back to about 200,000 years ago. So, according to Trump, human trafficking has been going on for 800,000 years before modern humans even existed.
It is truly amazing what comes out of this imbecile’s mouth.
