Refugees carry ISIS-funded phones: Trump
“Our country has enough difficulty right now without letting the Syrians pour in,” the 69-year-old real estate tycoon told the National Border Patrol Council podcast.
On The Green Line podcast, Trump also suggested ISIS is paying for refugees’ cell phone plans. “They all have cell phones so they don’t have money, they don’t have anything, they have cell phones. Who pays their monthly charges, right? They have cell phones with the flags, the ISIS flags on them,” he alleged.
“And then we’re supposed to say, ‘Isn’t this wonderful that we’re taking them in?’ We’re led by people that are either incompetent or they don’t have the best interest of our country at heart,” Trump said.
When asked if he thought it would take an attack similar to 9/11 for the country to “wake up about border security,” Trump answered in the affirmative.
“Bad things will happen; a lot of bad things will happen. There will be attacks that you wouldn’t believe. There will be attacks by the people that are right now coming in to our country,” he warned.
