Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump — who was indicted four times last year — continued to make claims about how other countries are sending the "criminals" to the US, calling the immigrants not "even people" but "these are animals".

Donald Trump was addressing a rally near Dayton, Ohio, the same gathering of supporters in which he warned of a blood bath if he was not reelected to the White House after the November 2024 elections.

The former president also reiterated how immigrants are plaguing the US society, unsubstantially asserting that leaders of foreign countries are sending them.

The businessman told people on Saturday in Ohio: "I don’t know if you call them [immigrants] ‘people,’ in some cases. They’re not people, in my opinion."

"But I’m not allowed to say that because the radical left says that’s a terrible thing to say," he maintained.

Despite confident assertion by Trump, studies including a recent one published in the journal Criminology, revealed how undocumented immigrants are generally linked with decreases in crimes, reported Huff Post.

On Sunday, while speaking with Fox News, he said that the US is "being poisoned" with immigrants.

When asked about that his remarks resembled that of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, he responded: "I didn't know that."

"Everything I've said has been right... We have millions of people coming into our country that shouldn't be here," Trump continued, repeating baseless warnings about "migrant crime."
