This is a terrifying thought, and Trump’s absolutely right.
Donald Trump recently entered the Syrian refugee debate and had some bold things to say about the crisis.
The Republican presidential front runner spoke with Fox News’ Eric Bolling on Cashin’ In about the issue. During the interview, Trump expressed his deep concern about potentially letting jihadists come into the country as “refugees.”
“They were talking about 3,000 people coming,” he told Bolling. “Then I heard 10 [thousand], then I heard 25 [thousand], then I heard 200,000 people.”
“And Eric, if you look at this migration, it’s mostly men,” Trump said. “And they look like young men, and strong men, and they look like fighters.”
Trump said he wondered “why aren’t they fighting for their own country — Syria?”
He went on to say, “This could be one of the greatest military coups of all time.” Trump obviously wasn’t talking about a domestic military overthrow of the government, but a surprise attack from a foreign enemy, as indicated when he said, “Some of [the immigrants] definitely in my opinion will be ISIS.”
Trump warned that accepting refugees in our attempt at humanitarianism could be like accepting “a Trojan horse.” Many migrants, including Islamic militants, would come to an unprepared United States.
He further pointed out that the United States is a “debtor nation” that owes $19 trillion, and our infrastructure is outdated.
“Obama wants to bring 200,000 people here,” Trump said. “[I]f I win the election, they are going back. They’re going back.”
