Trump: Syria Refugees Could Be Secret IS Army

11

trump pointingDonald Trump has said he would send back Syrian refugees taken in by the US if he is elected president, because they could be Islamic State militants in disguise.

The Republican front-runner said during a speech in Keene, New Hampshire, that he was worried refugees who have been fleeing Syria after years of civil war could be terrorists trying to get into the US.

He also questioned the number of men among the refugees and why they were fleeing Syria instead of remaining to fight.

“I’m putting the people on notice that are coming here from Syria as part of this mass migration,” he said.

“If I win, they’re going back.

“This could be one of the great tactical ploys of all time. A 200,000-man army, maybe. That could be possible.”

Millions of Syrians have fled the civil war in the country, which has killed more than 250,000 people since March 2011.

The United Nations has said more than four million people have fled, many risking their lives in crowded boats and rafts trying to get to Europe.

Last month, Secretary of State John Kerry said the US would significantly increase the number of migrants it takes over the next two years.

Some 85,000 will be allowed in 2016, with up to 100,000 in 2017.

Mr Trump also voiced his support for Russian military involvement in Syria after Moscow launched airstrikes on Wednesday.

US Defense Secretary Ash Carter has said it appeared the airstrikes targeted areas that did not include IS militants.

The 69-year-old tycoon also took aim at rivals Marco Rubio and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

He said: ” Jeb Bush is down the road. They’re expecting 125 people tonight.”

Mr Bush said his rival should show “some sensitivity” to the “serious challenge” of the Syrian refugee crisis.

He said: “We have an obligation to make sure that people coming here are legitimate, but send them all back? To a hellhole?”

    Disqus will probably block me because I am not a liberal; And because I support Donald Trump. Keep it up Mr. Trump; You are on thev right track.

      I don’t support Trump, but he is at least talking about issues few others are willing to stick their necks out too far in fear of them being politically lopped off.

      • OldKoreanwarvet

        Yes, and exactly the reason why others support him, sounds like you maybe should join in? Besides, he is paying his own freight I really like that!!!

        Trump is not a linguist; He is brash and bold. He is a proven highly successful business man. He doesn’t talk with a political silver tipped tounge; He doesn’t talk the repeated snake oil BS every other politician tries to get us to believe. Trump is smart enough to surround himself with the right political advisors he will need. Trump is an American that is the only canidate fully capable of taking America out of the nose dive the present liberal enemies of America have put us in. Save America. Vote Donal Trump. Semper Fi. 51-56 GOD BLESS AMERICA

          If it comes to a Hillary Trump fight, my vote will no doubt have to be Trump… but there is still time for another Republican to stick his neck out in to the fray too. We are looking for real objective–for the citizens–objective leadership. It has been far too long since we’ve had it. Too many Bushes and Clinton, and an Obama, to have mucked up the waters, and it is about time for real change and sensibility.

  • GlobalThinkTank

    If Trump actually said this, he will no doubt win a few more brownie points by many. Refugees and the children they have while escaping their home land should not be given a pathway to EU citizenship… they should be deported, along with their children back to Gulf States or the Middle-East once the a stable government is put back into place… soon.

    YEAH TRUMP. NO SITTING POLITICIAN, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SENATOR CRUZ HAS THE GUTS TO SEND THEM BACK.

  • pkthornton

    trump is right!there may not be anything wrong with helping these people but they should under no circumstances be allowed to come to the united states.let the middle eastern countries deal with them.the reason given why saudi arabia wants nothing to do with them is because they are concerned about terrorists coming into there country to cause problems.that tells us everything that we need to know and it seems either our current president is too stupid to see this threat (which I doubt),or he want to destroy america and will use every means at his disposal to do it,disguising it as other humanitarian things whenever he can.his total lack of care for the security of the american people and the nation is a complete dereliction of his duty as president of the united states and when the first terrorist attacks happen because of his complete and utter disregard for our security he should be brought up on charges of treason and aiding and abetting the enemy.it is about time this president is held to account for its actions.

    I think Obama gave some serious in site in his UN speeches of late. Its the reason for our immigrant population in the 1st place & has to do with UN Authority & Global governance. And is why we suddenly seem to no longer have borders. This also includes Syrian Refugees. What I understood is that, as a super power, in order for the UN to achieve global governance, they are requiring the US to step away. Open our borders, & renounce major parts of our Constitution. Our Constitution is a major obstacle to UN global governance & maintains our national sovereignty at a high level. Being over run with illegals & refugees is one of the ways the UN feels it has the authority to over rule US law. This has to do with much of Obama’s foreign policy & is one of the reasons for the international gun control. It is also one of the reasons Obama has sidestepped Congress on so many issues & signed agreements with other nations despite the lack of Constitutional authority.

  • Seldena

    I agree with Trump on this issue 100% !! We need Trump to lead America in the right direction and he will. He will also put Americans first!!!
