Who wil save Europe? Donald Trump. He made that clear on Fox News tonight.
Via Real Clear Politics:
VAN SUSTEREN: Donald, very disturbing news out of Nice, France right now. We’re still getting more information. Dozens killed, someone in a truck drove into a crowd. It’s Bastille Day, we’re hearing it’s total panic, locals are told to stay indoors, they don’t know what’s going on but it looks like it’s possible that this is terrorism striking Nice. Your thoughts?
TRUMP: Well, it sounds like, here we go again. It’s going to be a whole different world. We’re living in a whole different world, that there’s no respect for law and order, there’s no respect for anything or anybody and this has to be dealt with very harshly and when I come out with my non-politically correct statements that a lot of people love and some people think are so terrible and then you have attacks like this and so many other attacks. I mean, let’s see what happens with this one. It’s early to tell but I would think perhaps you’re not wrong the way you started this question. We have to get awfully tough and we have to get very, very smart and vigilant and if we don’t, we’re just not going to have a society, we’re not going to have a world anymore. This is crazy what’s going on.
VAN SUSTEREN: I don’t want to jump too far ahead, this is so early in the investigation but it has all the hallmark of terrorism. We saw that last November 13th in Paris and we have seen it in many other instances so naturally we all jump to the conclusion it’s terrorism. Assuming this is terrorism and assuming you were president of the United States, what would you be doing right now?
TRUMP: Well, I’d be making it very, very hard for people to come into our country, for one thing, from terrorist areas. I would be so extreme in terms of documentation. We have people that Hillary Clinton wants to allow 550 percent more than Obama and Obama is allowing a lot of people to come in and we have no idea who they are. They are from Syria maybe but they have no paperwork, many times they don’t have documentation proper. I would make it -- I would not allow people to come in from terrorist nations. I would do extreme vetting -- I would call it extreme vetting, too -- and, you know, our country has tremendous problems. We don’t need any more of the problems. Right now we have more investigations of this kind going on than we’ve ever had in the history of our country and we’re going to allow thousands and tens of thousands of more people coming in and then you see a situation like in Nice, France. It’s a horrible thing and we better get awfully tough and I’m only -- I’m talking about our country but I’m almost talking about the world because look at what’s going on in France, look at what’s going on in other countries. It’s bedlam.Extreme vetting.
I like it.
Contrast and compare to El Presidente's response:
On behalf of the American people, I condemn in the strongest terms what appears to be a horrific terrorist attack in Nice, France, which killed and wounded dozens of innocent civilians. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and other loved ones of those killed, and we wish a full recovery for the many wounded. I have directed my team to be in touch with French officials, and we have offered any assistance that they may need to investigate this attack and bring those responsible to justice. We stand in solidarity and partnership with France, our oldest ally, as they respond to and recover from this attack.
On this Bastille Day, we are reminded of the extraordinary resilience and democratic values that have made France an inspiration to the entire world, and we know that the character of the French Republic will endure long after this devastating and tragic loss of life.Chin up, buttercup. We will think kindly of you because you inspire the world. Maybe we'll send James Taylor back, this time to sing, "Fire and Rain."
Must not have been an important statement because he said "I" only twice.
Another attack in France. The populous is frightened. Muslim terrorists target France because after Chjarlie Hebdo, France went after satirists not Muslim terrorists.
Obama is weak. Hillary, too. Charles Krauthamer keeps mocking Trump as a "strong man."
So was Reagan.
But of course, Krauthammer worked for Mondale so he is used to being on the wrong side of history.
The rest of the United States is not.
