“If I become president, the era of nation building will be brought to a very swift and decisive end.” — Donald J. Trump in Youngstown, Ohio
On Monday, GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump delivered his plans for handling the fight against terrorism if/when he’s elected President. Mr. Trump focused his speech on three areas in particular: first, only immigrants who share our values should be allowed entry into America. Secondly, Mr. Trump also told his audience that he would lead us to victory against the vicious forces of radical Islam. Lastly, he promised that if the American people elected him President, we would end the era of “nation building” and chart a new course for the nation.
Here’s Trump on shifting our immigration policies to better protect our security and our culture:
A Trump Administration will establish a clear principle that will govern all decisions pertaining to immigration: we should only admit into this country those who share our values and respect our people.
In the Cold War, we had an ideological screening test. The time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today.
In addition to screening out all members or sympathizers of terrorist groups, we must also screen out any who have hostile attitudes towards our country or its principles – or who believe that Sharia law should supplant American law.
Those who do not believe in our Constitution, or who support bigotry and hatred, will not be admitted for immigration into the country.
Mr. Trump also argued that to defeat ISIS, we need a leader who is willing to call radical Islam what it is.
To accomplish a goal, you must state a mission: The support networks for Radical Islam in this country will be stripped out and removed one by one, viciously if necessary.
Those who are guests in our country, that are preaching hate, will be asked to return home immediately — and if they don’t do it, we will return them home. To make America safe again, we must work together again.
We have to promote the exceptional virtues of our own way of life [that] is being tread on by sick, sick people. Pride in our history and our values… should be impressed upon all those who come into our society and want to join our society.
Our system of government is the best in the world, and will produce the best outcomes for all who adopt it… Renewing this spirit of Americanism will help heal the divisions in our country, of which there are so many. We have a divider as president, it is the thing he does best.”
