TRUMP: (OFF-MIKE) This was going to be a debate on Hillary Clinton and all of a bad things and we all know what’s going on, and generally how bad she’d do as boss in these very, unequivocally uneasy times of radical Islamic terrorism.

TRUMP: Even her former Secret Service agent, who’s seen her underneath vigour and in times of stress, has settled that she lacks a spirit and firmness to be a president. There will be copiousness of eventuality to plead these critical issues during a after time, and we will broach that debate very, unequivocally soon.

But today, there’s usually one thing to discuss, a flourishing hazard of terrorism inside of a borders. The conflict on a Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, was a misfortune apprehension strike on a dirt given Sep 11th, and a misfortune mass sharpened in a country’s history.

So many people — it’s usually tough to believe, though usually so many people dead, so many people sincerely injured, so many carnage, such a disgrace. The fear is over description. The families of these smashing people are totally devastated, and they will be forever. Likewise, a whole republic and indeed a whole universe is devastated.

We demonstrate a deepest sympathies to a victims, a wounded, and their families. We weep as one people for a nation’s loss, and oath a support to any and all who need it. we would like to ask now that we all observe a impulse of overpower for a victims of this attack.

Thank you. Our republic stands together in oneness with a members of Orlando’s LGBT community. They have been by something that nobody could ever experience. This is a unequivocally dim impulse in America’s history. A radical Islamic militant targeted a nightclub, not usually given he wanted to kill Americans, though in sequence to govern happy and lesbian citizens, given of their passionate orientation.

It’s a strike during a heart and essence of who we are as a nation. It’s an conflict on a ability of giveaway people to live their lives, adore who they want, and demonstrate their identity. It’s an conflict on a right of each singular American to live in assent and reserve in their possess country.

We need to respond to this conflict on America as one joined people, with force, purpose, and determination. But a stream politically scold response cripples a ability to pronounce and to consider and act clearly. We’re not behaving clearly, we’re not articulate clearly, we’ve got problems.

If we don’t get tough, and if we don’t get smart, and fast, we’re not going to have a republic anymore. There will be nothing, positively nothing, left. The killer, whose name we will not use, or ever say, was innate in Afghan, of Afghan parents, who immigrated to a United States.

His father published support for a Afghan Taliban, a regime that murders those who don’t share a radical views, and they murdered plenty. The father even pronounced he was using for boss of Afghanistan. The bottom line is that a usually reason a torpedo was in America in a initial place, was given we authorised his family to come here.

That is a fact, and it’s a fact we need to pronounce about. We have a dysfunctional immigration system, that does not assent us to know who we let into a country, and it does not assent us to strengthen a adults properly. We have an amateurish administration.

And if I’m inaugurated president, that will not change, we will tell you, that will not change over a subsequent 4 years. We have an administration that will not change. But if we get in there, it’s going to change, and it’s going to change quickly. We’re going from totally amateurish to usually a opposite, trust me.


TRUMP: Thank you.

With 50 people passed and maybe some-more eventually and dozens some-more wounded, we can't means to pronounce around issues anymore. We have to residence these issues head-on. we called for a anathema after San Bernardino and was met with good ridicule and annoy though now many years and we have to contend many years though many are observant that we was right to do so. And nonetheless a postponement is proxy we contingency find out what is going on. We have to do it.

It will be carried — this anathema — when and as a republic we’re in a position to scrupulously and ideally shade these people entrance into a country. They’re pouring in and we don’t know what we’re doing. The immigration laws of a United States give a boss powers to postpone entrance into a republic of any category of persons. Now, any category — it unequivocally is dynamic and to be dynamic by a boss for a interests of a United States. And it’s as he or she deems appropriate. Hopefully it’s he in this case.


Thank you. we will use this energy to strengthen a American people. When I’m inaugurated we will postpone immigration from areas of a universe where there’s a proven story of terrorism opposite a United States, Europe or a allies until we entirely know how to finish these threats. After a full …


Thank you.

And by a approach we have no choice. After a full and prejudiced and prolonged — unequivocally prolonged overdue confidence comment we will rise a obliged immigration routine that serves a interests and values of America.


We can't continue to concede thousands on thousands of people to upsurge into a republic many of whom have a same suspicion routine as this monster killer. Many of a beliefs of radical Islam are exclusive with Western values and institutions.

(APPLAUSE) Remember this, radical Islam is anti-woman, anti-gay and anti- American.


I exclude to concede America to spin a place where happy people, Christian people, Jewish people are targets of harm and sign by radical Islamic preachers of loathing and violence.


This is not usually a inhabitant confidence issue. It’s a peculiarity of life issue. If we wish to strengthen a peculiarity of life for all Americans — women and children, happy and straight, Jews and Christians and all people afterwards we need to tell a law about radical Islam and we need to do it now.


We need to tell a law also about how radical Islam is entrance to a shores. And it’s entrance …


With these people, folks, it’s coming. We’re importing radical Islamic terrorism into a West by a unsuccessful immigration complement and by an comprehension village hold behind by a president. Even a possess FBI executive has certified that we can't effectively check a backgrounds of people we’re vouchsafing into America. All of a Sep 11th hijackists were released visas. Large numbers of Somali refugees in Minnesota have attempted to join ISIS.

The Boston bombers came here by domestic asylum. The masculine shooter in San Bernardino again whose name we will not plead was a child of immigrants from Pakistan and he brought his wife, a other militant from Saudi Arabia by another one of a simply exploited visa programs.


TRUMP: Immigration from Afghanistan into a United States has increasing scarcely 5 overlay — 5 overlay in usually one year. According to Pew Research, 99 percent of a people in Afghanistan support rough sharia law. We acknowledge many more, and that’s usually a approach it is. We acknowledge many some-more from other countries in a region.

And I’ll tell we what: They share these rough views and values. We wish to sojourn a giveaway and open society. Then, and if we do, afterwards we have to control a borders. We have to control, and we have to control them now, not later. Right now.


Thank you.

Yet Hillary Clinton, for months, and notwithstanding so many attacks, regularly refused to even contend a difference radical Islam until we challenged her yesterday. And, theory what, she will substantially contend them. She arrange of has pronounced them, though let’s see what happens. She unequivocally has no choice, though she doesn’t wish to.

However, she’s unequivocally been forced, and she has been forced to contend these words. She supports, and a reason is, she supports so many of what is wrong, and what is wrong with this country, and what’s going wrong with a republic and a borders. She has no clue, in my opinion, what radical Islam is and she won’t pronounce overtly about it if she does, in fact, know. She’s in sum denial, and her stability hostility to ever name a rivalry broadcasts debility opposite a whole universe — loyal weakness.

I don’t know if we know this, though usually a few weeks before San Bernardino, a slaughter, that’s all it was was a slaughter, Hillary Clinton explained her refusal to contend a difference “radical Islam.” Here is what she said, accurate quote, “Muslims are pacific and passive people, and have zero whatsoever to do with terrorism.” That is Hillary Clinton.

So, she says a resolution is to anathema guns. They attempted that in France that has among a toughest gun laws anywhere in a world, and 130 people were brutally murdered by Islamic terrorists in cold blood. Her devise is to lame law abiding Americans, abolishing a Second Amendment, and withdrawal usually a bad guys and terrorists with guns. No good. Not going to happen, folks. Not going to happen. Not going to happen. (APPLAUSE)

Thank you.

She wants to take divided American’s guns and afterwards acknowledge a unequivocally people who wish to massacre us. Let them come into a country, we don’t have guns. Let them come in, let them have all a fun they want.

I will be assembly with a NRA, that has given me their beginning publicity in a presidential race, to plead how to safeguard Americans have a means to strengthen themselves in this age of terror. we will be always fortifying a Second Amendment.


Thank you. Thank you.

The bottom line is that Hillary supports policies that move a hazard of radical Islam into American and concede it to grow oversees, and it is growing. In fact, Hillary Clinton’s inauspicious immigration devise will move vastly some-more radical Islamic immigration into this country, melancholy not usually a multitude though a whole approach of life. When it comes to radical Islamic terrorism, stupidity is not bliss. It’s lethal — totally deadly.

The Obama administration, with a support of Hillary Clinton and others, has also shop-worn a confidence by confining a comprehension entertainment and we have, just, no comprehension entertainment information. We need this information so badly, and he stopped it. We don’t have a support. We don’t have a support of a law coercion complement given Obama is not vouchsafing them do their job. They are not being authorised to do their job. And, they can do it good — improved than anybody.

We need a new leader. We need a new personality fast.


TRUMP: Thank you.

They have put domestic exactness above common sense, above your safety, and above all else. we exclude to be politically correct.


I wish to do a right thing. we wish to straighten things out and we wish to make America good again.


The days of lethal stupidity will end, and they will finish shortly if I’m elected. As boss we will give a comprehension community, law coercion and troops a collection they need to forestall militant attacks. They don’t have those collection now.


We need an comprehension entertainment complement second to none. Second to none. That includes improved team-work between state, internal and sovereign officials, and with a allies, unequivocally importantly. we will have an Attorney General, a Director of National Intelligence and a Secretary of Defense who’ll know how to quarrel a quarrel on radical Islamic terrorism.


And they will have a support that they need to get a pursuit finished right, not like it is right now. It’s not right.


We also contingency safeguard a American people are supposing a information they need to know a threat. The Senate subcommittee on Immigration has already identified hundreds of immigrants charged with militant activities inside a United States given Sep 11th. Nearly a year ago, a Senate Subcommittee asked President Obama’s Department of Justice, State and Homeland Security to yield a immigration story of all terrorists inside a United States. These Departments refused to comply. Nobody even knows why. They refused to comply.

President Obama contingency recover a full and finish immigration histories of all people concerned in militant activities of any kind given Sep 11th. So important. The open has a right to know how these people got here, how they came on to this good land, given are they here?


We have to shade field to know either they are dependent with or ancillary radical groups and beliefs, unequivocally simple. We have to control a volume of destiny immigration into this republic and we have to forestall immeasurable pockets of radicalization from combining inside America. Not complicated.


Every – and usually consider of this. Take a look. Every singular event, even a singular particular can be devastating, and all we have to do is take a demeanour during what happened in Orlando and what happened in other cases. Just a singular event. And usually one person. Can we suppose what they’ll do in immeasurable groups, that we’re permitting now to come here.

Truly a President doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s unsuccessful us and he’s unsuccessful us badly. Under his caring this conditions will not get any better, it will usually get worse. And I’ve been observant that for a prolonged time. Each year a United States henceforth admits 100,000 immigrants from a Middle East and many some-more from Muslim countries outward of a Middle East. Our supervision has been revelation ever- flourishing numbers, year after year, though any effective devise for a possess security.

In fact, Clinton’s State Department was in assign of admissions and a admissions routine for people requesting to enter from overseas. Having schooled zero from these attacks, she now skeleton to massively boost admissions though a screening devise including a 500 percent boost in Syrian refugees entrance into a country. Tell me, tell me – how foolish is that?

This could be a better, bigger, some-more terrible chronicle than a mythological Trojan Horse ever was. Altogether, underneath a Clinton plan, you’d be revelation hundreds of thousands of refugees from a Middle East with no complement to oldster them, or to forestall a radicalization of a children and their children. Not usually their children, by a way, they’re perplexing to take over a children and remonstrate them how smashing ISIS is and how smashing Islam is and we don’t know what’s happening.

TRUMP: The weight is on Hillary Clinton to tell us given she believes immigration from these dangerous countries should be increasing though any effective complement to unequivocally to screen. We’re not screening people.

So given don’t we have an effective screening system? We don’t. We’re being laughed during all over a world. The weight is on Hillary Clinton to tell us given we should acknowledge anyone into a republic who supports conflict of any kind opposite happy and lesbian Americans. The weight is on Hillary Clinton to tell us how she will compensate for it, her devise will cost hundreds of billions of dollars prolonged term.

Wouldn’t this be income improved spent rebuilding America for a stream race including a many bad people already vital here. We have cities, we have middle cities…


We have misery all over and this is how we’re spending billions of dollars. We have to stop a extensive upsurge of Syrian refugees into a United States. We don’t know who they are, they have no support and we don’t know what they’re formulation and we won’t unless we have scold administrator and scold caring in that box they’re out of here. What we want…


What we wish is common sense. we wish a mainstream immigration routine that promotes American values. That’s a choice we put before a American people. A mainstream immigration routine designed to advantage America or Hillary Clinton’s radical immigration routine designed to advantage politically scold special interests. That’s all it is. We’ve got to get intelligent and tough and observant and we’ve got to do it now given after is too late — going to be too late for a country.

The media talks about home grown terrorism though Islamic radicalism and that’s a very, unequivocally critical tenure — a tenure that a boss refuses to use and a networks that maintain it are imports from abroad either we like it or either we don’t like it. Yes, there are many radicalized people already inside a republic as a outcome of bad policies of a past.

But a whole indicate is that we will be much, many and it will be easier to understanding with a stream problem if we don’t keep on bringing people who supplement to a problem. And that’s what they’re doing. We’re vouchsafing all of these people — hundreds of thousands of people come in and all they’re doing is adding to this implausible problem we have.

For instance, a argumentative mosque attended by a Boston bombers had during a owner and as a owner an newcomer from abroad charged in an assassination plot. This shooter and amazingly in Orlando was a child of an newcomer father who upheld one of a many odious regimes on earth. Why would we acknowledge people who support aroused hatred?

Hillary Clinton can never explain to be a crony of a happy village as prolonged as she continues to support immigration policies that move Islamic extremists to a republic and who conceal women, gays and anyone who doesn’t share their views or values.


She can’t have it both ways. She can’t explain to be understanding of these communities while perplexing to boost a series of people entrance in who wish to annoy these same communities. How does this kind of immigration make a lives better? How does this kind of immigration make a republic better? Why does Hillary Clinton wish to move people in in immeasurable numbers who reject a values? Why? Explain.

Ask yourself who is unequivocally a crony of women and a LGBT community, Donald Trump with actions or Hillary Clinton with her words?

TRUMP: we will tell we who a improved crony is and some day we trust that will be proven out bigly (ph).


And by a approach a LGBT village is usually — what’s happened to them is usually so unhappy and to be meditative about where their policies are now with this administration is a flaw to that community, we will tell we right now.

Clinton wants to concede radical Islamic terrorists to upsurge into a country. They indenture women, and they murder gays. we don’t wish them in a country.


Immigration is a privilege, and we should not let anyone into this republic who doesn’t support a communities. All of a communities, each singular one of them. Americans already certified 4 times some-more immigrants than any republic on Earth, anybody in a world. Four times more. At least, given we don’t even know who’s entrance in. And we continue to acknowledge millions some-more with no genuine checks or scrutiny.

Not surprisingly, salary for a workers haven’t budged. In roughly 20 years. You consternation given we get a crowds, we consternation given we get this extensive support, we consternation given I’ve gotten some-more votes than any Republican in any primary in a story of a Republican Party? Take a demeanour during that. Take a demeanour during your security, take a demeanour during a wages. For 18 years they’ve been stagnant, they’ve even left down.

So either it’s a matter of inhabitant security, or financial security, we can’t means to keep on going like this. Cannot means it. We owe $19 trillion in debt. And no longer have any options. Our communities from all backgrounds are prepared for some relief. This is not an act of offense opposite anyone. It’s unequivocally an act of defense. we wish us all, all of us, to work together. We have to form a partnership, with a Muslim communities. We have Muslim communities in this republic that are great, and we have to form that partnership.

Now, a Muslim community, so important. They have to work with us. They have to concur with law coercion and spin in a people who they know are bad. They know it. And they have to do it, and they have to do it forthwith. we wish to repair a schools. we wish to repair a bridges. And a jobs market, we’re going to have it rocket again, we’re going to make good trade deals. But we wish each American to attain including Muslims.

But a Muslims have to work with us. They have to work with us. They know what’s going on. They know that he was bad. They knew a people in San Bernardino were bad. But we know what? They didn’t spin them in. And we know what? We had death, and destruction.

Hillary Clinton wants to dull out a Treasury to move people into a republic that embody people who evangelise loathing opposite a citizens. we wish to strengthen a citizens, all of a citizens. The militant conflict on Pulse nightclub final a full and finish review into each singular aspect of a assault. In San Bernardino, as an example, people who knew what was going on, they knew exactly, though they used a forgive of secular profiling for not stating it. They pronounced oh, “We suspicion so though we didn’t wish to use secular profiling.” Which was substantially an forgive given to them by their lawyer, so they don’t get in trouble.

We need to know what a torpedo discussed with his relatives, parents, friends and associates. We need to know if he was dependent with any radical mosques or radical activists and what, if any, is their immigration status. We have to know, and we have to know fast. We need to know if he trafficked anywhere and who he trafficked with. We need to know, and we need to make sure, each singular final chairman concerned in this plan, including anyone who knew something though didn’t tell us, is brought to justice, so when people know what’s going on and they don’t tell us, and we have an attack, and people die, these people have to have consequences. Big consequences.


America contingency do some-more — many some-more — to strengthen a citizens, generally people who are intensity victims of crimes formed on their backgrounds or passionate orientation, as we usually saw in Orlando.

TRUMP: It also means we contingency change a unfamiliar policy. The preference to overpower a regime in Libya, afterwards pulling for a overpower of a regime in Syria, among other things, though skeleton for a day after, have combined space for ISIS to enhance and grow like nobody has ever seen before.

These actions, along with a catastrophic Iran deal, have also reduced a ability to work in partnership with a Muslim allies in a region. That is given a new idea contingency be to better Islamic terrorism not republic building. No some-more republic building. It’s never going to work.

And by a approach we’ve spent roughly $5 trillion over a years on perplexing to republic build in a Middle East and it has been finish and sum disaster. We’re serve divided now than we were 15 years ago. For instance, a final vital NATO goal was Hillary Clinton’s quarrel in Libya. That goal helped to unleash ISIS on a new continent.

I’ve pronounced NATO need to change a concentration and stop terrorism. We have to concentration on terrorism and we have to stop terrorism. Since I’ve lifted that critique and it’s OK. I’ve gotten no credit for it though these are teenager sum — NATO has given announced a new beginning — front page of a Wall Street Journal 4 days ago focused on usually that. America contingency combine a whole courteous universe in a quarrel opposite Islamic terrorism.


Pretty many like we did with communism during a Cold War. We attempted it President Obama’s way, doesn’t work. He gave a universe his reparation tour. We got ISIS and many other problems in return. That’s what we got. Remember a famous reparation tour. We’re contemptible for everything.

I’d like to interpretation my remarks now by again expressing a solitarily with a people of Orlando who have come underneath this horrific attack. When I’m boss we oath to strengthen and urge all Americans who live inside a borders. Wherever they come from, wherever they were born, we don’t care. All Americans vital here and following a laws not other laws will be protected.


Thank you. Thank you. We’re going to be tough and we’re going to be intelligent and we’re going to do it right. America will be a passive and open society. America will also be a protected society. We will strengthen a borders during home. We will better ISIS overseas. We have no choice. We will safeguard each primogenitor can lift their children in assent and safety. We will make America abounding again. We will make America protected again. We will make America good again. Thank you. Thank we unequivocally much. Thank we unequivocally much.


Thank you. Thank we unequivocally much, everybody. Appreciate it. Thank you.
