Trump has started his deportation of illegal immigrants from the US. As one of Trump’s first moves since becoming the President-elect on Wednesday, he has singled out Kiwi Basketballer, Steven Adams, and told him to pack his bags.
“This guy is taking $100m from the US economy, and he’s sending it back to Mexico or China or something. Somewhere huge.
I’ve been in business all my life, I’ve made a very successful company, and right now he’s making more than me and he can’t even win against the Raptors. A foreigner. A Muslim. A Mexican. He’s everything we don’t want.
We want to double our growth and this guy literally couldn’t be any taller, believe me”.
Adams spoke to Thai Castle shortly after, saying he was disappointed about the decision, but most of all was terrified about being deported to Mexico instead of to New Zealand.
“Trump said I was to go to Mexico and help build the wall, because of my height. He thinks I’m Mexican”
Adams has so far spent $5.4m of his contract, and will be starting a givealittle page to help pay it all back.
