Donald Trump Says We Need To Look At Mosques

In the aftermath of suicide bombings in Brussels that left 34 dead and over 100 wounded, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump spoke with Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo saying, “Frankly, we’re having problems with the Muslims. These attacks are not done by Swedish people. That I can tell you. We have to be smart. We have to look at the mosques and study what’s going on. There is a sick problem going on.”

Trump then warned about immigration by stating, “I would be extremely careful about people from the Middle East coming into our country. We should be vigilant at our borders.”

Trump was then asked for specifics, and he said he would want "good documentation" from travelers. On "CBS This Morning" Trump stated that Brussels used to be one of the most "beautiful and safest" cities in the world. "Now it's a horror show. There's no assimilation."

When pressed on his immigration policy, he explained "I didn't say shut it down. I said you have to be very careful. We have to be very, very strong and vigilant at the borders. We have to be tough. We have people who are coming into our country who are undocumented. We have no idea who they are or where they come from. They could be ISIS-related."

In addition, Trump implied he had not consulted with any of his newly named list of foreign policy consultants. He shared, "I have not spoken to them this morning. I will be speaking to them later on. And I will tell you right now, what are they going to advise me? If they don't advise me to be very strong and very tough at the borders, then I'm probably not a big fan of that particular person. I understand foreign policy, I understand security as well as anybody."
