“We have to be very, very vigilant with who we let into this country,” Trump continued. “We are taking in people without real documentation.
“We don’t know who they are or where they’re from. We don’t learn. I will tell you I’ve been talking about this for a long time. This whole thing will get worse as time goes by.”

Trump said Europe is facing an increasingly bloody struggle with extremist violence.
“Brussels was an absolutely crime-free city, one of the most beautiful cities in the world,” he said. “It was a magical place.
“Paris is almost as bad,” he continued, in reference to the November terrorist attacks in the French capital. “Paris is no longer the beautiful city of light. They’re cities in fear.
“This is a story that seems to be more and more happening. You see what’s happening in London and other cities. It’s not pretty to watch. Many cities will be this way with what’s taking place.”
