Trump: My Immigration Policies Would Have Prevented 9/11
Donald Trump is making wild statements again. On Sunday, he claimed that his immigration policies would have prevented 9/11.
“I am extremely, extremely tough on illegal immigration. I am extremely tough on people coming into this country,” Trump said on “Fox News Sunday.” “I believe that if I were running things, I doubt that those people would have been in the country.”
Trump clarified that he isn’t blaming George Bush, but wants Jeb to stop blindly defending his brother’s policies.
“I’m not blaming George Bush,” Trump said. “But I don’t want Jeb to say ‘my brother kept us safe.’”
“We lost 3,000 people, it as one of the greatest – probably the greatest catastrophe ever in this country,” Trump said.
The Hill reports:
Trump also took a shot at primary opponent Carly Fiorina’s stagnant poll numbers, after she briefly surged following the second primary debate.
“She’s going nowhere,” the businessman said. “You talk about dropping in the polls, she’s dropped like a rock.”
He also addressed his threat to pull out of the third primary debate if CNBC did not reduce the length of the program to two hours.
Trump said he “could stand there for 12 hours. I could stand there for 20 hours, but the people can’t take it.”
