Donald Trump has spoken out on numerous occasions about letting more refugees and migrants into the United States. He has called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. As well, he has said that Hillary Clinton’s plan on bringing in thousands of more refugees each year is dangerous. During a recent event he laid out his plan for how the President and government should handle Muslim immigrants.
In the video Donald Trump says,
“To accomplish a goal you must state a mission. To support networks for radical Islam in this country will be stripped out and removed one by one viciously if necessary. Viciously, if necessary. Immigration officers will also have their powers restored.
Those who are guest in our country that are preaching hate will be asked to return home immediately and if they don’t do it we will return them them. To make America great again. We will rely on international consensus. That is what we must have to defeat radical, Islamic terrorism. [Applause]
But you say like we couldn’t defeat communism without acknowledging it exists or explaining its horrible evils we cannot defeat radical Islamic terrorism unless we do the exact same thing. We have to explain that it exists and explain the difficulties. We have to have a leader that can do that and we don’t have that now. [Applause]”
Many have argued that Donald Trump’s popularity stems from his ability to tap into the silent majority in the United States. That silent majority is full of people who agree with this sentiment that he preached at his rally. While many are for allowing more refugees in comparing it to allowing Jews in during the Holocaust many argue that it is dangerous to let poorly vetted migrants with little documentation in.
The argument is double sided.
