Trump would Suspend Immigration from Nations with ‘Terror History’

White House hopeful Donald Trump vowed Monday to “suspend immigration” from nations with links to terror attacks targeting the United States, which has felt the danger of terrorists whom it had previously trained and equipped.
Trump“When I’m elected, I will suspend immigration from areas of the world where there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe or our allies, until we fully understand how to end these threats,” Trump said during a national security speech in New Hampshire.
“We cannot continue to allow thousands upon thousands of people to pour into our country, many of whom have the same thought process as this savage killer.”
But Trump forgot that those terrorists were trained and equipped by the US in the first place.
In a 2009 hearing in the US senate, Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, who was the US Secretary of State at the time, admitted that terrorist groups were created by the US for reasons related to their so-called ‘security’.
In Hillary Clinton’s own words back then:
“We had this brilliant Idea that we were going to come to Pakistan and create a force of ‘Mujahideen’ and equip them with stinger missiles and everything else to go after the soviets inside Afghanistan and we were successful. The people we are fighting today, we funded 20 years ago.”
Also in 2015, US General Wesley Clark said in a CNN interview that the US created ISIL in order to fight its enemies and distort their images. “The terrorist group was part of a strategy to destroy our enemies with an army of extremists,” the General said.
Trump rapped his opponent in the US presidential race, Clinton, by saying she is pushing to expand immigration and the nation’s refugee program to allow more Syrians into the United States. “Clinton wants to allow radical Islamic terrorists to pour into our country,” he said, highlighting how such extremists have enslaved women and murdered homosexuals.
“Immigration is a privilege, and we should not let anyone in this country who doesn’t support our communities.”
Speaking of the Orlando shooter, who was also a US citizen born in New York to Afghan parents, Trump said
“the only reason the killer was in America in the first place was because we allowed his family to come here.”
“We have a dysfunctional immigration system which does not permit us to know who we let into our country,” he added.
Trump’s blunt comments come six months after he controversially called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States.
