After anti-Israel protesters set up encampments at universities across the U.S., former President Donald Trump promised donors earlier this month that he would stifle the demonstrations and deport foreign-born student protesters if he wins a second term in the White House, participants in a May 14 roundtable with Trump told The Washington Post.

According to donors who were with Trump at the roundtable discussion in New York, the former president said, “One thing I do is, any student that protests, I throw them out of the country. You know, there are a lot of foreign students. As soon as they hear that, they’re going to behave.”

Trump also said the anti-Israel demonstrators were part of a “radical revolution” that he would push back against if he’s elected in November.

“Well, if you get me elected, and you should really be doing this, if you get me re-elected, we’re going to set that movement back 25 or 30 years,” he said.

Trump blasted the anti-Israel demonstrators, along with universities and law enforcement, after protesters set up encampments on campuses and blocked traffic on major roads. Authorities have said that some campus protests appeared to be co-opted by professional outside agitators.

In April, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee posted, “Why are Palestinian protesters, and even rioters, allowed to roam the Cities, scream, shout, sit, block traffic, enter buildings, not get permits, and basically do whatever they want including threatening Supreme Court Justices right in front of their homes, and yet people who truly LOVE our Country, and want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, are not allowed to ‘Peacefully Protest’ and are rudely and systematically shut down and ushered off to far away ‘holding areas,’ essentially denying them their Constitutional Rights.”

While the former president has urged Israel to “finish up” its war against Hamas in Gaza and “get to peace,” he has maintained his support for the U.S. ally and slammed President Joe Biden’s policies on the conflict. Earlier this month, Trump accused the president of “taking the side of” Hamas terrorists after Biden threatened to withhold military aid to Israel if the U.S. ally launched an offensive inside Rafah.

“Hamas murdered thousands of innocent civilians, including babies, and are still holding Americans hostage, if the hostages are still alive. Yet Crooked Joe is taking the side of these terrorists, just like he has sided with the Radical Mobs taking over our college campuses, because his donors are funding them,” Trump said. “Biden is weak, corrupt, and leading the world straight into World War III.”


To go along with his reported pledge to deport anti-Israel protesters, Trump has also promised to conduct the largest mass deportation of illegal immigrants in American history if he’s sworn in for a second term next January, which he said would involve using the National Guard.
