Donald Trump isn’t a man to mince words and he doesn’t beat around the bush. He says what he means and he means what he says. That’s why earlier today, in an interview with Fox News, he made remarks about Syrian refugees and what we as a society should do with mosques that preach radical Islamist teachings.
He answers by saying we have “absolutely no choice” but to close them down.
From The Hill,
Trump said on Monday he would “strongly consider” closing mosques if elected in response to the terrorist attacks in France last Friday that killed at least 129 people and injured hundreds more.
Pressed to explain his tougher stance on the issue, the GOP primary front-runner told Fox News’s Sean Hannity that the security situation was changing “a lot faster than anybody understands.”
“There’s absolutely no choice,” Trump insisted. “Some really bad things are happening and they’re happening fast. Certainly a lot faster than our president understands because he doesn’t understand anything.”
Trump also highlighted his concerns with accepting Syrian refugees, saying he has “a feeling that a lot of bad things will happen.”
“But yet we take everybody,” he said. “We don’t know where they come from, we don’t know what their crime record is. It could be wonderful. It could be a disaster.”
The businessman said if he wins the presidency, “they’re going out.”
“We can’t take a chance. You know, if you take thousands of people, and again I hear it’s going to be many more than what you’re talking about right now. But if you take thousands of people, Sean, all you need is a couple. You know, you don’t need 25, you don’t need 100,” he said. “Look at all the damage done in Paris with just a few people.”
