At a campaign event in Virginia Beach, Va., on Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for her plan to increase the number of Syrian refugees admitted to the U.S. by 550 percent, saying that, while “we all have big hearts,” "we can’t just allow these people into country” without thoroughly vetting each one of them first.
“You see the damage that one person can do,” said Trump, citing the deadly terror attacks in Orlando and San Bernardino. “We have to be careful and vigilant and strong…”
“Look, we all have big hearts. We just can’t allow these people into our country until we find out what’s going on,” he argued.
Trump added that he wants to build safe havens for refugees in Syria and other countries where people are fleeing violence and terror.
“I want to build safe havens,” he said. “We’ll lead the charge.”
