In a spectacular turn, Donald Trump showed us all what’s important to him and the rest of the country.
Just as the Obama administration pledged to take in hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees, Trump said “not so fast”, citing that the real threat comes from ISIS members within the ranks of refugees.
On Wednesday night, Mr Trump told an audience at Keene High School: “I hear we want to take in 200,000 Syrians. And they could be – listen, they could be Isis [Islamic State].”
Describing them as a “200,000-man army”, he later added: “I’m putting the people on notice that are coming here from Syria as part of this mass migration, that if I win, if I win, they’re going back.”
Then he went on to the core issue and the reason why the refugees are fleeing the country:
Asked whether he thought some of the migrants travelling into Europe should be allowed in the US, the business mogul said: “I hate the concept of it, but on a humanitarian basis, with what’s happening, you have to.”
He blamed President Barack Obama for the crisis and added: “It’s living in hell in Syria. They are living in hell.”
I’m glad we have someone sticking up for the American people and not putting them on the front lines for a potential terror attack. Thank you, Donald Trump!
