When Donald Trump proposed a complete and total shutdown of Muslim immigration into America after the San Bernardino terrorist attacks, members of the media lost their minds.
Trump has since refined the proposal to halting immigration from countries suspected of ties to terrorism.
But the latest wave of terrorist attacks led Trump to make a shocking proposal.
Recently, the Russian ambassador to Turkey was gunned down in retaliation for Russia’s involvement in the Syrian Civil War to defeat the ISIS backed “rebels”.
In addition, a Tunisian man – with suspected ties to ISIS – plowed a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin where he killed twelve innocents and wounded 40 others.
Trump reacted to these attacks by noting he was proven right about the threat radical Islam poses to the West and the tough steps needed to secure the American people and defeat radical jihad.
And that could include his ban on foreign Muslims immigrating into the United States.
The New York Post reports:
“President-elect Donald Trump declared Wednesday that the deadly truck attack on a Christmas market in Germany was “an attack on humanity and it’s got to be stopped.” He also suggested he might go forward with his campaign pledge to temporarily ban Muslim immigrants from coming to the United States.
“You know my plans. All along, I’ve been proven to be right, 100 percent correct,” Trump said when asked if the attack in Berlin had caused him to reevaluate the proposal. “What’s happening is disgraceful.”
Trump proposed the Muslim ban during the Republican primary campaign, prompting criticism from both parties. He shifted his rhetoric during the general election to focus on temporarily halting immigration from an unspecified list of countries with ties to terrorism, though he did not disavow the Muslim ban. A transition spokesman said later Wednesday that Trump’s plans “might upset those with their heads stuck in the politically correct sand.”
“President-elect Trump has been clear that we will suspend admission of those from countries with high terrorism rates and apply a strict vetting procedure for those seeking entry in order to protect American lives,” said spokesman Jason Miller.
But transition officials did not comment as to whether Trump could also push for the overarching ban on Muslims. The proposal remains on his campaign website.”
In the GOP primary, Trump’s Muslim ban proved popular.
Exit polls routinely showed over 60 percent of Republican voters favored Trump’s plan stop jihad by limiting Muslim immigration into America.
While the media howled in protest that it would sink his general election chances, Trump’s “extreme vetting” and plans to stop immigration from countries with suspected ties to terrorism did not derail his campaign.
In fact, the proposal may have even mobilized voters to his cause.
The case of the Tunisian jihadist in Germany highlights the need for tougher immigration policies.
The terrorist Anis Amri entered Germany from Italy in 2012.
He applied for Asylum but his bid was rejected in June after his links to a known ISIS recruiter came to light.
Despite his ties to terrorism, Amri was not deported and was allowed to remain in Germany, where he committed another attack in the long line of horrific acts of terrorism made by a Muslim immigrant.
Under Trump’s proposed Muslim ban, he would not have been allowed in America.
