One of Trump’s most controversial stances during his campaign was to control the influx of Muslim migrants coming over to the US. Liberals have given the President-elect a lot of grief over this stance. With the recent attack in Berlin, he is stating that he was right all along. Do you agree?
Donald Trump says he has ‘been proven to be right, 100 per cent correct’ when asked whether the Berlin terror attack has made him think about banning Muslims from emigrating to the US.
During the presidential campaign, Trump pledged to enforce a ban as well as resurrect a post-9/11-era registry of foreign nationals from terror-prone Muslim countries.
‘You know my plans,’ Trump shot back. ‘All along, I’ve been proven to be right, 100 per cent correct.’
He called Monday’s deadly strike on a Berlin Christmas market ‘an attack on humanity,’ saying that the rise of Islamic terrorism in the West ‘is disgraceful.’
‘It’s an attack on humanity. That’s what it is,’ Trump said outside his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
‘An attack on humanity. And it’s got to be stopped.’
Trump’s declaration that the Berlin slaughter was ‘an attack on humanity’ came after he was asked whether framing the attack as an assault on Christians could inflame religious tensions.
In his statement Monday, Trump said that ‘ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places of worship as part of their global jihad.’
‘These terrorists and their regional and worldwide networks must be eradicated from the face of the earth,’ Trump added then, ‘a mission we will carry out with all freedom-loving partners.’
The White House offered a very different kind of statement Monday night, with National Security Council spokesperson Ned Price saying that the United States condemns ‘what appears to have been a terrorist attack’ on the Christmas Market in Germany.
