Donald Trump has a point…
When Bill Clinton made his latest suggestion on how to rebuild Detroit, the billionaire businessman offered up one of his blunt replies, and it went something like this: Don’t be “crazy,” Bill.
Specifically he said this, in an interview with Breitbart:
“It’s very unfair to the people that are living there. I think it’s crazy. I mean, these people are getting started – I think it’s a very, very hard place to get your start.”
More to point, Trump said the Syrian refugees shouldn’t even be in the United States in the first place.
“We should have them in the country,” he said. “We don’t know who these people are. We have no idea. This could be the all time great Trojan horse. We have no idea who they are. The whole thing is ridiculous.”
Trump suggested instead the Gulf states ought to build “safe zones” for Syrians in their own country.
Doing so, he said, would not only provide for the safety of the Syrians fleeing terrorists like ISIS. But it would also keep America secure and lower the chances of an ISIS sympathizer or terrorist crossing U.S. borders under guise of being a refugee.
Trump wasn’t alone in his assessment of Clinton’s plan for the refugees.
“There are plenty of people in Detroit who you could almost look at as refugees,” Carson said. “I mean, we need to take care of our own people. We need to create jobs for them.”
Their comments come as President Obama has opened the doors to refugees from Syria, and Hillary Clinton has vowed to do the same. Meanwhile, Trump’s popularity has grown with his “America first” slogan that promises tighter borders and extreme vetting for refugees.
