Trump Calls for Temporary Freeze on Immigration From Terrorist Hotbeds

WASHINGTON TIMES — Breaking all of the usual taboos for a national tragedy, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Monday that the shooting massacre in Orlando, Florida, should be a redefining moment for America’s relationship with Muslims overseas and at home, where he said they must do more to inform on potential terrorists.

In less than 24 hours, Mr. Trump called for President Obama to resign for mishandling the threat from radical Islam, congratulated himself for predicting another attack and revamped his own call for a temporary ban on Muslims from being admitted to the U.S.

Mr. Trump broke from his usual practice by delivering a speech from a teleprompter — but the tone was classic Trump, firing at both Republicans and Democrats for botching the war on terrorism.

He went a step further by arguing that gay rights supporters should withhold support for Democrats and their likely presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, because the high levels of immigration that she supports is what allowed the parents of the attacker into the U.S. in the first place.
