I will send back Syrian refugees

US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he would get out of the race for the White House only in the event of falling behind the rivals in poll figures.

Donald Trump has said he would send back Syrian refugees taken in by the USA if he is elected president, because they could be Islamic State militants in disguise.

Millions of Syrians have fled the civil war in the country, which has killed more than 250,000 people since March 2011.

Secretary of State John Kerry later announced that the USA would increase the refugee quota overall to 85,000 in 2016 from the current figure of 70,000.

A refugee crisis has gripped parts of Europe and the USA has pledged to take 10,000 refugees from Syria next year.

With his trademark showmanship, Trump vowed to remove families making less than $50,000 from the tax rolls and allow them to send the IRS a single-page form declaring “I win!” “But if Russian Federation wants to go in there and knock out ISIS (ISIL) and maybe stabilise, this big migration with 200,000 people into the United States…”

Trump began his campaign in June by saying Mexico is sending its criminals and rapists to the U.S. On Wednesday, while making his intentions clear, he doubted those of the Syrian refugees, calling them a “200,000-man army”.

That’s less than a few have urged, but as many, he said, as the US can handle given post-Sept.

Trump was swarmed by supporters as he made his way out of Keene High School.

President Barack Obama decided in September that the US would take in more Syrian refugees, after growing public pressure.

The Syrian refugee crisis would not be easily resolved by accepting them as migrants. When they fully endorse it he drops the hammer: it isn’t Clinton’s, it’s Donald Trump’s. “When somebody is not making enough to live, what’s the goal for them doing lengthy returns, going to get help from H&R Block, who we intend to put out of business”.

“On a humanitarian basis, something does have to be done”, Trump had said.

“Nobody has crowds like us, nobody, including Bernie, who does pretty well”. “And if you didn’t hear that young woman’s heart and have a sense that it’s important to be on the side of people that are seeking freedom, look it’s not the America I know“, Bush said.
