“I don’t want to have anyone coming in that’s on welfare,” Trump told Breitbart News.
“We owe a lot of money. We’re taking care of everybody in the world’s military. But now as you know I got over $100 billion from NATO countries,” Trump said in the interview. “But that’s not enough, that’s not enough, we’re paying for massive portions of NATO.”

Trump’s comments came in response to questions citing a report by the Center for Immigration Studies that said “63 percent of households headed by a non-citizen reported that they used at least one welfare program” in 2014. However, some critics have challenged the numbers.
