Trump on Taking Syrian Refugees: 'They Could Be ISIS, It Could Be a Plot'
On "Hannity" tonight, Donald Trump stood by his statement that as president, he would ship out all the Syrian refugees who are brought into America.
Trump pointed out that the U.S. already has too many problems, including a multi-trillion dollar deficit.
"Now, we're going to start taking 200,000 people. We have no idea where they come from. They could be ISIS. It could be a plot," Trump said, adding he notices a lot of "young, strong men" among the refugees but not a lot of women.
Trump explained that during a speech in New Hampshire, he said that he would notify any refugee coming to the U.S. that he will ship them out. He said that some critics have responded to that statement by asking how he plans to do that.
"Well, they’re shipping them in, why can’t we ship them out?" Trump said. "If we take 200,000 people - and they could very well be ISIS, we have no idea who they are - we are absolutely insane. This country is going insane."
Trump also weighed in on the increasing Russian aggression in Syria. Earlier this week, Trump urged caution by the U.S. and argued that it's a "wonderful thing" that Russia wants to fight ISIS in Syria.
Trump told "Hannity" that the U.S. doesn't aim for victory anymore in its military engagements, whether it's Iraq, Afghanistan or fighting ISIS.
"We used to be the country that never lost a war. Now, we never win a war," Trump said. "We haven't had the right leaders. We haven't had the right thinking or thought process. Hopefully, if I win, that will change and it'll change quickly."
The GOP contender stood by his stance that he doesn't want the U.S. to be bogged down in Syria, which he said could now happen to Russia.
