Trump On Syrian Refugees: "If I Win, They're Going Back"

"It's living in hell in Syria. They are living in hell," according to Donald Trump, blaming President Obama's failed policies. However, in a reversal of policy - earlier this month he told Fox News the US should take in more refugees - Trump told a New Hampshire rally: "If I win, they're going back."

Donald Trump has said he would send home all Syrian refugees the US accepts, if he becomes president.

As The BBC reports,

The billionaire, who is the current frontrunner in the Republican race for the White House, told a New Hampshire rally: "If I win, they're going back."

 

It marks a reversal in policy - earlier this month he told Fox News the US should take in more refugees.

 

...

 

On Wednesday night, Mr Trump told an audience at Keene High School: "I hear we want to take in 200,000 Syrians. And they could be - listen, they could be Isis [Islamic State]."

 

Describing them as a "200,000-man army", he later added: "I'm putting the people on notice that are coming here from Syria as part of this mass migration, that if I win, if I win, they're going back."

However... when asked whether he thought some of the migrants travelling into Europe should be allowed in the US, the business mogul said:

 "I hate the concept of it, but on a humanitarian basis, with what's happening, you have to."

He blamed President Barack Obama for the crisis and added: "It's living in hell in Syria. They are living in hell."
