“We have to be very, very vigilant as to who we allow into this country,” Trump says
GOP frontrunner Donald Trump warned that America has to be very careful “as to who we allow into this country” when he called into “Fox & Friends” Tuesday morning to discuss the latest terror attacks in Brussels that have killed at least two dozen people.
“I think it’s absolutely horrible,” Trump told Fox News hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt told and Brian Kilmeade.
“I’ve been talking about this for a long time. Brussels was a beautiful place,” Trump said. “Zero crime, and now it’s a disaster city. It’s a total disaster and we have to be very careful in the United States… We have to be very, very vigilant as to who we allow into this country.”
Trump, who has previously called for a temporary ban on allowing Muslims into the United States, went on to say, “I would close up our borders to people until we figure out what is going on.”
On Tuesday morning, two explosions rocked the Brussels airport and a third explosion went off in the Maasbeek subway station close to the European Union headquarters buildings. Initial reports indicate that at least two dozen people were killed and many more injured.
Officials described them as acts of terrorism and shut down all public transportation in the Belgian capital. The attacks came four days after the arrest in Brussels of Paris terror suspect Salah Abdeslam.
