After a number of deadly terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium, at least 32 people are dead… and that number continues to climb. Islamic terrorists and ISIS are stronger than ever… and President Obama has done nothing to slow down their progress.
When reached for comment Republican presidential frontrunner and conservative businessman Donald J. Trump told us EXACTLY what he would do as President… and liberals are furious!
Trump, who isn’t “politically correct,” is calling for more harsh interrogations of Islamic terrorists, “beyond” waterboarding and other techniques.
Islamic terrorist thugs only respond to violence, and it’s clear that our soft approach – including closing Guantanamo Bay and releasing top Taliban officials – is a big reason why attacks continue.
Trump promised that as President, he will take on the terrorists directly… and get information from them by any means necessary!
Trump said he would go beyond waterboarding when interrogating suspected terrorist leaders and repeated that the U.S. should “close up our borders until we figure out what’s going on.”
“Waterboarding would be fine and if they could expand the laws, I would do a lot more than waterboarding,” Trump said Tuesday morning on NBC’s Today, adding authorities should “should be able to do whatever they have to do.” Asked if he believed people, when tortured, yield useful rather than false information, he said he was “in that camp.”
“You have to get the information and you have to get it rapidly,” he said.
“We can’t be soft and weak,” Trump said, suggesting the U.S. and Europe should observe laws around interrogation techniques but said “liberal” laws there have hampered terror investigations. The U.S. considers waterboarding torture.
The comments come in response to Belgian authorities who captured the mastermind of the Paris terrorist attacks, Salah Abdeslan. Tougher interrogations of Abdeslan could have possibly prevented today’s tragedy.
Trump also repeated his demand that America puts a stop to Obama’s plan to important thousands of Muslim “refugees” because there’s no way to tell which ones are linked to terrorism. This type of poor assimilation of Muslims in Europe clearly contributed to today’s attack.
Muslim communities don’t trust people outside of their own faith, and don’t report terrorism activities.
Do you all remember how beautiful and safe a place Brussels was. Not anymore, it is from a different world! U.S. must be vigilant and smart!
