Jun. 13, 2016 – 6:01 – GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump weighs in on radical Islamic terror and the presumptive Democratic nominee Lyin’ Crooked Hillary on ‘The O’Reilly Factor.’
Donald Trump talked with Bill O’Reilly about Orlando, terrorism and refugees, and was challenged about some of his positions and rhetoric.
He continued criticism of Hillary Clinton for not protecting gay people because, he says, she is soft on terrorism.
“I’m far better for the gay community than she is,” Trump said. “She talks a lot about it, and yet she’ll allow people in who want to kill people from the community, and I think it’s terrible. The same thing with women.”
Trump said Clinton wants a “500 percent increase in people coming in from Syria that are radical Islamists, in many cases.”
Bill O’Reilly said that Clinton and the Democratic Party as a whole want to bring in non-radical Muslims under a humanitarian banner.
Trump responded that she has no way of knowing who’s coming in.
“There no paperwork. There’s no documentation. Sure, they think everyone’s going to be beautiful. These people, they’ll tell everybody how wonderful they are. And they’ll come in, and then they’ll blow up a club like they blew up over the weekend, or they’ll do something else.”
O’Reilly asininely said Trump was “conflating both radicals with refugees” and asked if he believed there was a danger that Trump’s “hot rhetoric” could be contributing to “a demonization of all Muslims in general.”
Trump said it was the opposite, saying that he’s been getting phone calls from Muslims thanking him and that he has “incredible” Muslim friends.
“The fact is she’s allowing massive numbers of people to come in and they’re not all radicalized and they’re not all terrorists, but it doesn’t’ take many, Bill. If you take a look, this is one young man that did this damage, 50 people killed and probably a lot more to follow, they’re very very gravely injured in hospitals right now.”
Trump also said that Muslims have to report trouble when they see it going on.
“They’ve gotta report them. Because the Muslims are the ones that see what’s going on. The Muslims are the ones that have to report them. And if they don’t report them, then there have to be consequences to them.”
Trump intelligently said that the correct response to attacks like the one in Orlando is to ‘temporarily’ ban Muslims from areas known for radical Muslim activity from visiting or immigrating in to the United States until a ‘long overdue’ analysis and correction of our current immigration laws could be performed.
