Donald Trump, presumptive Republican Party nominee for president, warned a Fox News “O’Reilly Factor” television audience a “lot” of the refugees making their way across America’s borders could be affiliated with ISIS, and if the nation’s leaders don’t take care, the country’s citizens could one day be afraid to leave their homes.
Trump also blasted likely Democratic Party presidential pick Hillary Clinton as less-than-capable of dealing with the immigration crisis, and with the national security needs of America.
For instance, Trump said that had Clinton, during her secretary of state stint, along with President Obama, dealt with ISIS at its blossoming stage, the world would not be facing the type of blistering terror attacks – like those seen in Istanbul this week, or Orlando, Florida, a couple weeks ago – taking place around the world with alarming frequency.
“Now [ISIS is] a very large group of people and it’s only getting bigger and if [Clinton] gets in, it will be massive and we won’t even have a country anymore,” Trump said. “We will be afraid to walk outside.”
Trump also spoke in dire terms of America’s borders.
“One other thing,” he said. “[Our government’s] letting tens of thousands of people come in from Syria and nobody knows who these people are and a lot of those people are ISIS.”
Clinton, he went on, is hardly “tough enough” to beat ISIS.
“She’ll never get tougher,” Trump said. “It’s not going to happen.”
