Poll Context: Donald Trump again warned of another 9/11-like attack on the United States if refugees are continually allowed into the country.
“Our country has enough difficulty right now without letting the Syrians pour in,” the presumptive Republican nominee said in an interview on the National Border Patrol Council podcast Sunday morning.
He also suggested that ISIS is paying for refugees’ cell phone plans.
“They all have cell phones so they don’t have money, they don’t have anything, they have cell phones,” Trump said. “Who pays their monthly charges, right? They have cell phones with the flags, the ISIS flags on them.”
When asked if he thought it would take an attack similar to 9/11 for the country to “wake up about border security,” Trump agreed.
“Bad things will happen; a lot of bad things will happen,” Trump said. “There will be attacks that you wouldn’t believe. There will be attacks by the people that are right now coming in to our country.”
