But now Trump looks like Nostradamus.
The liberals wailed, ‘You can’t say that!’
Trump did tell the truth, and they were quick to condemn him for it. He was called ‘insensitive’, ‘racist’, and ‘Islamophobic’.
Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton clashed repeatedly on the issue of refugees throughout the election cycle. While Trump promised to suspend the influx of refugees due to security concerns, Clinton called for an increase in refugees brought to the U.S…
…Speaking a rally in Maine last August, Trump warned that Somali refugees provide a “rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.” FBI Director James Comey has issued similar warnings.
“And as Maine knows, a major destination for Somali refugees. Right? Am I right?” Trump said. “Well they’re all talking about it, Maine Somali refugees. We admit hundreds of thousands, you admit into Maine and to other places in the United States, hundreds of thousands of refugees, and they’re coming from among the most dangerous territories and countries across the world.”
He went on to cite a Washington Times article on resettlement efforts of Somalian refugees in Minnesota, noting that “the effort to resettle large groups of Somali refugees is having the unintended consequence of creating an enclave of immigrants with high unemployment that is….creating a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.”…
…The mayor of Portland, Maine accused Trump of standing on “values of bigotry and xenophobia” while speaking at a protest of Trump’s comments held at the city hall. The Somali Community Center of Maine, which helped organize the protests, issued a statement denouncing Trump’s comments. “It is damaging to the psyche of our youth to hear a major party presidential nominee insult our culture and religion,” the community center claimed.

But it only takes one guy with a car and a machete.
It’s a good thing that Trump won, or we’d be inundated with more Refugees under a Hillary Administration.
The left continues to assert that bringing in thousands of people into a country where the language and culture are vastly different is the ‘compassionate’ thing to do.
The unfortunate consequences that have been shown time and again, is that these people often have difficulty integrating into society and group together, and often these frustrated, disgruntled groups rebel against the ‘compassionate’ society that has brought them there.
This is the current situation in Europe.
Politicians all over the world are taking heat for saying similar things that Trump has said.
Geert Wilders, the Dutch politician that is currently in the lead to be the next Prime Minister of the Netherlands.
We know that the left doesn’t like to hear it.
What do you think about Trump’s statements?
Is he right or wrong?
