In a rambling speech on Tuesday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said that Latinos and Hispanics would welcome his proposed wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
"The Latinos, the Hispanics, they don't want ... people pouring into our country taking their jobs, taking their houses," Trump said. "They want to have security. They really want the wall."
During the remarks, delivered at a rally in Virginia, Trump also knocked Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's just-released fundraising numbers for July, repeatedly claiming that a small number of donors had given Clinton the bulk of her contributions.
"I want to find out how many I know, but I'll tell you what 20 people gave her — $60 million," Trump told a packed rally in Ashburn, Virginia, on Tuesday. "The game is played that way; they own her."
It is unclear where exactly the Trump campaign got those numbers, but a Forbes article from this May reported that a recent two-year summary from the Federal Election Commission showed that Priorities USA Action, the main Clinton super PAC, had raised $75.9 million this election cycle through April with nearly 80 percent of contributions made by 20 donors.
Clinton national spokesperson Josh Schwerin disputed the accuracy of Trump's remarks.
"Donald Trump has never had more than a passing relationship with the truth so it should surprise no-one that he is once again lying about Hillary Clinton," Schwerin wrote in an email. "The fact is the average donation to Hillary for America last month was just $44 and more than 1.6 million people have contributed to this campaign."
Seeming to reference his own July fundraising numbers, Trump told the crowd he has raised over $35 million with an approximate average donation of $61.
"We're announcing that we're going to have more than $35 million from a group of people, like almost 60,000 people averaging $61 a piece," Trump said.
Trump also talked about his nearby property, introduced his son Eric and appeared to call on the Arab states to pay for "safe zones" in Syria.
"We want to do safe zones in Syria. I will get the Gulf states, who are not doing much, believe me, the Gulf states have nothing but money," Trump said. "I'm going to get them to pay."
Toward the conclusion, Trump rattled off a litany of economic indicators and local factory closures in making the case that the economy is not doing well. In particular, he emphasized the need to increase the number of manufacturing jobs in the U.S.
"We need manufacturing jobs, we need the income, we need the productivity," Trump said. "We need the future."
