Donald Trump on Wednesday accused Democrats attending their national convention in Philadelphia of ignoring security issues down at the border and ISIS, arguing a Hillary Clinton administration would only make the situation worse as security in Europe unravels.
“France is no longer France,” the Republican presidential nominee said during a revealing one-hour press conference in Miami. “Look at what’s happening in Syria, with immigration, in Iraq. And under Hillary Clinton it will only be worse.”
Trump reassured his hardline immigration position temporarily banning immigrants from Middle East countries that are hotbeds for ISIS and other radical Islamic terror groups. He also argued that Clinton’s vice-presidential nominee, Sen. Tim Kaine, wants to further open U.S. borders to people from such countries.
“He even wants more people coming in from that region than Hillary Clinton does,” Trump said. “I don’t want people coming into the country doing damage to our people.”
