"DONALD J. TRUMP ADDRESSES TERRORISM, IMMIGRATION, AND NATIONAL SECURITY"
6/13/16, "Read Donald Trump’s Speech on the Orlando Shooting," Time, Ryan Teague Beckwith
"Donald Trump addressed the shooting at a gay club in Orlando in a prepared speech
Monday, calling for suspending immigration from countries with a history
of terrorism. Here is a full transcript of his remarks, as given.
"TRUMP: (OFF-MIKE) This was going to be a speech on Hillary Clinton
and all of the bad things and we all know what’s going on, and
especially how poor she’d do as president in these very, very troubled
times of radical Islamic terrorism.
TRUMP: Even her former Secret Service agent, who’s seen her under
pressure and in times of stress, has stated that she lacks the
temperament and integrity to be our president. There will be plenty of
opportunity to discuss these important issues at a later time, and I
will deliver that speech very, very soon.
But today, there’s only one thing to discuss, the growing threat of
terrorism inside of our borders. The attack on the Pulse nightclub in
Orlando, Florida, was the worst terror strike on our soil since
September 11th, and the worst mass shooting in our country’s history.
So many people-it’s just hard to believe, but just so many people
dead, so many people gravely injured, so much carnage, such a disgrace.
The horror is beyond description. The families of these wonderful people
are totally devastated, and they will be forever. Likewise, our whole
nation and indeed the whole world is devastated.
We express our deepest sympathies to the victims, the wounded, and
their families. We mourn as one people for our nation’s loss, and pledge
our support to any and all who need it. I would like to ask now that we
all observe a moment of silence for the victims of this attack.
Thank you. Our nation stands together in solidarity with the members
of Orlando’s LGBT community. They have been through something that
nobody could ever experience. This is a very dark moment in America’s
history. A radical Islamic terrorist targeted the nightclub, not only
because he wanted to kill Americans, but in order to execute gay and
lesbian citizens, because of their sexual orientation.
It’s a strike at the heart and soul of who we are as a nation. It’s
an assault on the ability of free people to live their lives, love who
they want, and express their identity. It’s an attack on the right of
every single American to live in peace and safety in their own country.
We need to respond to this attack on America as one united people,
with force, purpose, and determination. But the current politically
correct response cripples our ability to talk and to think and act
clearly. We’re not acting clearly, we’re not talking clearly, we’ve got
If we don’t get tough, and if we don’t get smart, and fast, we’re not
going to have our country anymore. There will be nothing, absolutely
nothing, left. The killer, whose name I will not use, or ever say, was
born...of Afghan parents, who immigrated to the United States.
His father published support for the Afghan Taliban, a regime which
murders those who don’t share its radical views, and they murdered
plenty. The father even said he was running for president of
Afghanistan. The bottom line is that the only reason the killer was in
America in the first place, was because we allowed his family to come
That is a fact, and it’s a fact we need to talk about. We have a
dysfunctional immigration system, which does not permit us to know who
we let into our country, and it does not permit us to protect our
citizens properly. We have an incompetent administration.
And if I’m not elected president, that will not change, I will tell you,
that will not change over the next four years. We have an administration
that will not change. But if I get in there, it’s going to change, and
it’s going to change quickly. We’re going from totally incompetent to
just the opposite, believe me.
TRUMP: Thank you. With 50 people dead and perhaps more ultimately and dozens more
wounded, we cannot afford to talk around issues anymore. We have to
address these issues head-on.
I called for a ban after San Bernardino
and was met with great scorn and anger but now...many are saying that I was right to do so. And
although the pause is temporary we must find out what is going on. We
have to do it.
It will be lifted — this ban — when and as a nation we’re in a
position to properly and perfectly screen these people coming into our
country. They’re pouring in and we don’t know what we’re doing. The
immigration laws of the United States give the president powers to
suspend entry into the country of any class of persons. Now, any class —
it really is determined and to be determined by the president for the
interests of the United States. And it’s as he or she deems appropriate.
Hopefully it’s he in this case. (APPLAUSE)
Thank you. I will use this power to protect the American people. When
I’m elected I will suspend immigration from areas of the world where
there’s a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe
or our allies until we fully understand how to end these threats. After a
Thank you. And by the way we have no choice. After a full and partial and long —
really long overdue security assessment we will develop a responsible
immigration policy that serves the interests and values of America.
We cannot continue to allow thousands upon thousands of people to
pour into our country many of whom have the same thought process as this
savage killer. Many of the principles of radical Islam are incompatible
with Western values and institutions.
(APPLAUSE) Remember this, radical Islam is anti-woman, anti-gay and anti- American.
I refuse to allow America to become a place where gay people,
Christian people, Jewish people are targets of persecution and
intimation by radical Islamic preachers of hate and violence.
This is not just a national security issue. It’s a quality of life
issue. If we want to protect the quality of life for all Americans —
women and children, gay and straight, Jews and Christians and all people
then we need to tell the truth about radical Islam and we need to do it
We need to tell the truth also about how radical Islam is coming to our shores. And it’s coming …
With these people, folks, it’s coming. We’re importing radical
Islamic terrorism into the West through a failed immigration system and
through an intelligence community held back by our president. Even our
own FBI director has admitted that we cannot effectively check the
backgrounds of people we’re letting into America. All of the September
11th hijackists were issued visas. Large numbers of Somali refugees in
Minnesota have tried to join ISIS.
The Boston bombers came here through political asylum. The male
shooter in San Bernardino again whose name I will not mention was the
child of immigrants from Pakistan and he brought his wife, the other
terrorist from Saudi Arabia through another one of our easily exploited
TRUMP: Immigration from Afghanistan into the United States has
increased nearly five fold — five fold in just one year. According to
Pew Research, 99 percent of the people in Afghanistan support oppressive
sharia law. We admit many more, and that’s just the way it is. We admit
many more from other countries in the region.
And I’ll tell you what: They share these oppressive views and values.
We want to remain a free and open society. Then, and if we do, then we
have to control our borders. We have to control, and we have to control
them now, not later. Right now.
Thank you. Yet Hillary Clinton, for months, and despite so many attacks,
repeatedly refused to even say the words radical Islam until I
challenged her yesterday. And, guess what, she will probably say them.
She sort of has said them, but let’s see what happens. She really has no
choice, but she doesn’t want to.
However, she’s really been forced, and she has been forced to say
these words. She supports, and the reason is, she supports so much of
what is wrong...with this country, and what’s going
wrong with our country and our borders. She has no clue, in my opinion,
what radical Islam is and she won’t speak honestly about it if she does,
in fact, know. She’s in total denial, and her continuing reluctance to
ever name the enemy broadcasts weakness across the entire world-true
I don’t know if you know this, but just a few weeks before San
Bernardino, the slaughter, that’s all it was was a slaughter, Hillary
Clinton explained her refusal to say the words “radical Islam.” Here is
what she said, exact quote, “Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people,
and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”
That is Hillary
So, she says the solution is to ban guns. They tried that in France
which has among the toughest gun laws anywhere in the world, and 130
people were brutally murdered by Islamic terrorists in cold blood. Her
plan is to disarm law abiding Americans, abolishing the Second
Amendment, and leaving only the bad guys and terrorists with guns. No
good. Not going to happen, folks. Not going to happen. Not going to
Thank you. She wants to take away American’s guns and then admit the very people
who want to slaughter us. Let them come into the country, we don’t have
guns. Let them come in, let them have all the fun they want.
I will be meeting with the NRA, which has given me their earliest
endorsement in a presidential race, to discuss how to ensure Americans
have the means to protect themselves in this age of terror. I will be
always defending the Second Amendment.
Thank you. Thank you. The bottom line is that Hillary supports policies that bring the
threat of radical Islam into America and allow it to grow oversees, and
it is growing. In fact, Hillary Clinton’s catastrophic immigration plan
will bring vastly more radical Islamic immigration into this country,
threatening not only our society but our entire way of life. When it
comes to radical Islamic terrorism, ignorance is not bliss. It’s deadly-totally deadly.
The Obama administration, with the support of Hillary Clinton and
others, has also damaged our security by restraining our intelligence
gathering and we have, just, no intelligence gathering information. We
need this information so badly, and he stopped it. We don’t have the
support. We don’t have the support of the law enforcement system because
Obama is not letting them do their job. They are not being allowed to
do their job. And, they can do it well — better than anybody. We need a new leader. We need a new leader fast.
TRUMP: Thank you. They have put political correctness above common sense, above your
safety, and above all else. I refuse to be politically correct.
I want to do the right thing. I want to straighten things out and I want to make America great again.
The days of deadly ignorance will end, and they will end soon if I’m
elected. As president I will give our intelligence community, law
enforcement and military the tools they need to prevent terrorist
attacks. They don’t have those tools now.
We need an intelligence gathering system second to none. Second to
none. That includes better cooperation between state, local and federal
officials, and with our allies, very importantly. I will have an
Attorney General, a Director of National Intelligence and a Secretary of
Defense who’ll know how to fight a war on radical Islamic terrorism.
And they will have the support that they need to get the job done right, not like it is right now. It’s not right.
We also must ensure the American people are provided the information
they need to understand the threat. The Senate subcommittee on
Immigration has already identified hundreds of immigrants charged with
terrorist activities inside the United States since September 11th.
Nearly a year ago, the Senate Subcommittee asked President Obama’s
Department of Justice, State and Homeland Security to provide the
immigration history of all terrorists inside the United States. These
Departments refused to comply. Nobody even knows why. They refused to
President Obama must release the full and complete immigration
histories of all individuals implicated in terrorist activities of any
kind since September 11th. So important. The public has a right to know
how these people got here, how they came on to this great land, why are
We have to screen applicants to know whether they are affiliated with
or supporting radical groups and beliefs, very simple. We have to
control the amount of future immigration into this country and we have
to prevent large pockets of radicalization from forming inside America.
Every – and just think of this. Take a look. Every single event, even
a single individual can be devastating, and all you have to do is take a
look at what happened in Orlando and what happened in other cases. Just
a single event. And just one person. Can you imagine what they’ll do in
large groups, which we’re allowing now to come here.
Truly our President doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s failed us and
he’s failed us badly. Under his leadership this situation will not get
any better, it will only get worse. And I’ve been saying that for a long
time. Each year the United States permanently admits 100,000 immigrants
from the Middle East and many more from Muslim countries outside of the
Middle East. Our government has been admitting ever- growing numbers,
year after year, without any effective plan for our own security.
In fact, Clinton’s State Department was in charge of admissions and
the admissions process for people applying to enter from overseas.
Having learned nothing from these attacks, she now plans to massively
increase admissions without a screening plan including a 500 percent
increase in Syrian refugees coming into our country. Tell me, tell me –
how stupid is that?
This could be a better, bigger, more horrible version than the
legendary Trojan Horse ever was. Altogether, under the Clinton plan,
you’d be admitting hundreds of thousands of refugees from the Middle
East with no system to vet them, or to prevent the radicalization of the
children and their children. Not only their children, by the way,
they’re trying to take over our children and convince them how wonderful
ISIS is and how wonderful Islam is and we don’t know what’s happening.
TRUMP: The burden is on Hillary Clinton to tell us why she believes
immigration from these dangerous countries should be increased without
any effective system to really to screen. We’re not screening people.
So why don’t we have an effective screening system? We don’t. We’re
being laughed at all over the world. The burden is on Hillary Clinton to
tell us why we should admit anyone into our country who supports
violence of any kind against gay and lesbian Americans. The burden is on
Hillary Clinton to tell us how she will pay for it, her plan will cost
hundreds of billions of dollars long term.
Wouldn’t this be money better spent rebuilding America for our
current population including the many poor people already living here.
We have cities, we have inner cities…
We have poverty all over and this is how we’re spending billions of
dollars. We have to stop the tremendous flow of Syrian refugees into the
United States. We don’t know who they are, they have no documentation
and we don’t know what they’re planning and we won’t unless we have
proper supervisor and proper leadership in which case they’re out of
here. What I want…
What I want is common sense. I want a mainstream immigration policy
that promotes American values. That’s a choice I put before the American
people. A mainstream immigration policy designed to benefit America or
Hillary Clinton’s radical immigration policy designed to benefit
politically correct special interests. That’s all it is. We’ve got to
get smart and tough and vigilant and we’ve got to do it now because
later is too late--going to be too late for our country.
The media talks about home grown terrorism but Islamic radicalism and
that’s a very, very important term — a term that the president refuses
to use and the networks that nurture it are imports from overseas
whether you like it or whether you don’t like it. Yes, there are many
radicalized people already inside our country as a result of poor
policies of the past
But the whole point is that...it will be
easier to deal with our current problem if we don’t keep on bringing
people who add to the problem.
And that’s what they’re doing. We’re
letting all of these people — hundreds of thousands of people come in
and all they’re doing is adding to this incredible problem we have.
For instance, the controversial mosque attended by the Boston bombers
had at its founder and as its founder an immigrant from overseas
charged in an assassination plot. This shooter and amazingly in Orlando
was the child of an immigrant father who supported one of the most
repressive regimes on earth. Why would we admit people who support
Hillary Clinton can never claim to be a friend of the gay community
as long as she continues to support immigration policies that bring
Islamic extremists to our country and who suppress women, gays and
anyone who doesn’t share their views or values.
She can’t have it both ways. She can’t claim to be supportive of
these communities while trying to increase the number of people coming
in who want to oppress these same communities. How does this kind of
immigration make our lives better? How does this kind of immigration
make our country better? Why does Hillary Clinton want to bring people
in in vast numbers who reject our values? Why? Explain.
Ask yourself who is really the friend of women and the LGBT
community, Donald Trump with actions or Hillary Clinton with her words?
TRUMP: I will tell you who the better friend is and some day I believe that will be proven out bigly (ph).
And by the way the LGBT community is just — what’s happened to them
is just so sad and to be thinking about where their policies are
currently with this administration is a disgrace to that community, I
will tell you right now.
Clinton wants to allow radical Islamic terrorists to pour into our
country. They enslave women, and they murder gays. I don’t want them in
Immigration is a privilege, and we should not let anyone into this
country who doesn’t support our communities. All of our communities,
every single one of them. Americans already admitted four times more
immigrants than any country on Earth, anybody in the world. Four times
more. At least, because we don’t even know who’s coming in. And we
continue to admit millions more with no real checks or scrutiny.
Not surprisingly, wages for our workers haven’t budged. In almost 20
years. You wonder why we get the crowds, you wonder why we get this
tremendous support, you wonder why I’ve gotten more votes than any
Republican in any primary in the history of the Republican Party? Take a
look at that. Take a look at your security, take a look at the wages.
For 18 years they’ve been stagnant, they’ve even gone down.
So whether it’s a matter of national security, or financial security,
we can’t afford to keep on going like this. Cannot afford it. We owe
$19 trillion in debt. And no longer have any options. Our communities
from all backgrounds are ready for some relief. This is not an act of
offense against anyone. It’s really an act of defense. I want us all,
all of us, to work together. We have to form a partnership, with our
Muslim communities. We have Muslim communities in this country that are
great, and we have to form that partnership.
Now, the Muslim community, so important. They have to work with us.
They have to cooperate with law enforcement and turn in the people who
they know are bad. They know it. And they have to do it, and they have
to do it forthwith. I want to fix our schools. I want to fix our
bridges. And our jobs market, we’re going to have it rocket again, we’re
going to make great trade deals. But I want every American to succeed
But the 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 the people
in San Bernardino were bad. But you know what? They didn’t turn them in.
And you know what? We had death, and destruction.
Hillary Clinton wants to empty out the Treasury to bring people into
the country that include individuals who preach hate against our
citizens. I want to protect our citizens, all of our citizens. The
terrorist attack on Pulse nightclub demands a full and complete
investigation into every single aspect of the assault.
Bernardino, as an example, people who knew what was going on, they knew
exactly, but they used the excuse of racial profiling for not reporting
it. They said oh, “We thought so but we didn’t want to use racial
profiling.” Which was probably an excuse given to them by their lawyer,
so they don’t get in trouble.
We need to know what the killer discussed with his relatives,
parents, friends and associates. We need to know if he was affiliated
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 traveled anywhere and who he traveled with. We need to
know, and we need to make sure, every single last person involved in
this plan, including anyone who knew something but 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 must do more — much more — to protect its citizens,
especially people who are potential victims of crimes based on their
backgrounds or sexual orientation, as you just saw in Orlando.
TRUMP: It also means we must change our foreign policy. The decision
to overthrow the regime in Libya, then pushing for the overthrow of the
regime in Syria, among other things, without plans for the day after,
have created space for ISIS to expand and grow like nobody has ever seen
These actions, along with our disastrous Iran deal, have also reduced
our ability to work in partnership with our Muslim allies in the
region. That is why our new goal must be to defeat Islamic terrorism not
nation building. No more nation building. It’s never going to work.
And by the way we’ve spent almost $5 trillion over the years on
trying to nation build in the Middle East and it has been complete and
total disaster. We’re further away now than we were 15 years ago. For
instance, the last major NATO mission was Hillary Clinton’s war in
Libya. That mission helped to unleash ISIS on a new continent.
I’ve said NATO need to change its focus and stop terrorism. We have
to focus on terrorism and we have to stop terrorism. Since I’ve raised
that criticism and it’s OK. I’ve gotten no credit for it but these are
minor details — NATO has since announced a new initiative — front page
of the Wall Street Journal four days ago focused on just that. America
must unite the whole civilized world in the fight against Islamic
Pretty much like we did with communism during the Cold War. We tried
it President Obama’s way, doesn’t work. He gave the world his apology
tour. We got ISIS and many other problems in return. That’s what we got.
Remember the famous apology tour. We’re sorry for everything.
I’d like to conclude my remarks today by again expressing our
solidarity with the people of Orlando who have come under this horrific
attack. When I’m president I pledge to protect and defend all Americans
who live inside our borders. Wherever they come from, wherever they were
born, I don’t care. All Americans living here and following our laws
not other laws will be protected.
Thank you. Thank you. We’re going to be tough and we’re going to be
smart and we’re going to do it right. America will be a tolerant and
open society. America will also be a safe society. We will protect our
borders at home. We will defeat ISIS overseas. We have no choice. We
will ensure every parent can raise their children in peace and safety. We will make America rich again. We will make America safe again. We
will make America great again. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you
Thank you. Thank you very much, everybody. Appreciate it. Thank you.""
