Trump Suggests Using Submarines To “Prevent Syrian Refugees From Landing On U.S. Shores”

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said over the weekend that he would reauthorize the use of enhanced interrogation techniques in order to protect Americans from terrorism. “When the Syrian refugees are going to start pouring into this country, we don’t know if they’re ISIS, we don’t know if they’re a Trojan Horse,” Trump told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday. “I want to see a database and other checks and balances. We want to go with watch lists, we want to go with databases, and we have no choice.”

“It could be the greatest Trojan Horse of all times,” he continued. “When I look at the [immigration] line, I see all strong powerful men. And I see very few women, and I see very few children. There’s something strange going on. And if you look at what’s happening in Europe, a lot of bad things are happening in Europe.”

Trump went so far as to add that “the U.S. should put in more efforts to prevent the contamination of U.S. citizens with refugees from Syria,” arguing that “it shouldn’t be done because of fear of Muslims, but because of fear of ISIS terrorists.”

“You know, we’ve all witnessed what these so-called sleeper cells can do and what they’re capable of,” the billionaire real estate magnate stated. “In business, when you see a problem, you don’t deal with the consequence, you deal with the source. That’s exactly what we need to be doing with this, we need to nip it in the bud, we need American ships and submarines to be stationed in the Middle East. We need them to control and inspect every ship that sails out of every Middle Eastern port 24/7.”

The media mogul also added that he is “sorry if it sounds offensive or politically incorrect or whatever, but if I have to choose between protecting my own people, my own country and insulting a third world country, then you know what I’m going for. And while we’re on the subject, I don’t like third world countries anyway, so that’s just an added bonus.”
