Once again playing the role of the only adult with an eye on reality in the room, presidential candidate Donald Trump has said he’s not just talking the talk on blocking Syrian refugees being admitted into the United States.
Trump said he’d have no issue telling Syrian children that they cannot come to America under the current climate in which terrorists are trying to infiltrate the program, set up shop, and attack our citizens.
“I can look at their faces and say, ‘Look, you can’t come here,'” he said in response to a question at a New Hampshire town hall meeting.
Watch the report on Trump’s comments below:
Via The Hill:
Donald Trump said he’d be able to look into the eyes of Syrian refugee children to tell them they cannot come to schools in America in light of concerns about safely vetting refugees.
“We don’t know where their parents come from, they have no documentation whatsoever,” Trump said Monday during a town hall in New Hampshire.
“I’ve talked to the greatest legal people, spoken to the greatest security people. There’s absolutely no way of saying where these people come from. They may be from Syria, they may be ISIS, they may be ISIS related.”
During the event, a man who said he was from Connecticut told Trump about plans to relocate Syrian families into the community and let their children come to schools. When asked whether he’d be able to “look at these children” to tell them they couldn’t go to school, Trump said: “I can look in their faces and say, ‘You can’t come here.’”
The crowd applauded his answer.
What a novel idea – a President who has to make difficult and sometimes heartbreaking decisions in order to put the best interests of America first.
