Trump to Re-Open U.S. Internment Camps; Will Make Japan Pay for It

Manzanar, CA ( – In his latest speech on foreign policy, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump today announced his intention to refurbish the Japanese relocation camps originally authorized by Franklin Roosevelt in 1942. The camps were constructed to retain citizens of Japanese descent who were rounded-up during World War II, in order to calm a fearful America after the Empire of Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

“I can perform a major rehab of these aging facilities,” said the billionaire developer, “and use them to house illegal immigrants before we ship them back to Mexico.”

Trump insisted the undertaking would not cost American taxpayers any money. “I’m going to make the Japanese government pay for it.”

When asked to respond, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe rolled his eyes and released an embarrassed laugh. “I didn’t realize Donald Trump was a real person,” he said. “I thought he was America’s version of Godzilla.”
