Republican nominee Donald Trump began his speech in Youngstown, Ohio Monday by saying he wanted to start a conversation about how to make America safe again.
One by one, he went down the list of the many Islamic terror attacks that have occurred recently, both in the United States and around the world.
Trump said Obama’s policies “led directly to the rise of ISIS, without question.”
He said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s policies “launched ISIS onto the world stage.” He also stated that if elected president, Clinton’s immigration policies would be just as bad as Germany. “Hillary Clinton wants to be America’s Angela Merkel and you know what a disaster this massive immigration has been to Germany and the people of Germany,” Trump said. “It is a catastrophe.”
He noted that many terror attacks in the U.S. have been carried out by Muslim immigrants or the children of immigrants, and promised as president, he would temporarily suspend immigration from all nations who have a history of “exporting terrorism.”
“The time is overdue to establish a new screening test for the threats we face today,” Trump said, adding that the U.S. should screen out “any who have hostile attitudes to our country and its principles.”
