Former President Donald J. Trump is being accused of calling for illegal aliens to be fed to alligators over a provocative social media post that comes at a time when border crossings are again rising at an alarming rate, overwhelming the ability to process them.
The 2024 GOP frontrunner, who has been a fierce critic of the disastrous immigration policies of the Biden regime, riled leftists when he shared a meme of several of the giant carnivorous reptiles in front of a barricade with the words “new border security” and “will work for food” adding a comment of “problem solved!”

While the former president did not specifically call for the feeding of migrants to the beasts with the meme being open to the interpretation of who views it, leftists assumed the worst, possibly launching the next great anti-Trump hoax that will take its place with the “very fine people on both sides” fib along with the lie that he told Americans to drink bleach as a COVID remedy.
“Deranged psycho Trump posts this on Truth Social. Apparently he thinks migrants should be killed and eaten by alligators,” wrote one user on X, formerly known as Twitter.

It’s not the first time that it’s been suggested that Trump sees illegals as gator bait. In 2019, the New York Times reported that a moat filled with snakes and alligators could be among the options to serve as a deterrent to border crossers.
“Privately, the president had often talked about fortifying a border wall with a water-filled trench, stocked with snakes or alligators, prompting aides to seek a cost estimate. He wanted the wall electrified, with spikes on top that could pierce human flesh. After publicly suggesting that soldiers shoot migrants if they threw rocks, the president backed off when his staff told him that was illegal. But later in a meeting, aides recalled, he suggested that they shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down. That’s not allowed either, they told him,” the paper claimed were topics at an Oval Office meeting with the then-president and “astonished” White House advisors.
Trump denied that he had made such suggestions, dismissing them as “fake news” in a post on Twitter.
Now the press is trying to sell the fact that I wanted a Moat stuffed with alligators and snakes, with an electrified fence and sharp spikes on top, at our Southern Border. I may be tough on Border Security, but not that tough. The press has gone Crazy. Fake News!

Whether a leftist feeding frenzy will turn Trump’s alligator border control meme into the next great hoax is yet to be seen but if past history is any indicator, it has potential.
The big lie about drinking bleach is still repeated as gospel by Trump’s foes, most recently by retiring Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) who repeated it in the upcoming book on his time in D.C., “Romney: A Reckoning,” by writer McCay Coppins of The Atlantic.
“Romney relished the idea of running a presidential campaign in which he simply said whatever he thought, without regard for the political consequences. . . . He nursed a fantasy in which he devoted an entire debate to asking Trump to explain why, in the early weeks of the pandemic, he’d suggested that Americans inject bleach as a treatment for COVID-19. . . . ‘Every time Donald Trump makes a strong argument, I’d say, ‘Remind me again about the Clorox,’ ” Romney told me. “Every now and then, I would cough and go, ‘Clorox.’” Coppins wrote, according to an excerpt published by the Wall Street Journal.
