Speaking a day after 49 people were killed at an Orlando, Fla., nightclub by a gunman who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Trump put much of the blame on U.S. immigration policies that allowed the shooter’s parents to enter the country.
He also criticized Obama and Clinton for arguing for stronger gun control laws, saying that would make terrorist acts more likely.
Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, said Obama and Clinton were putting “political correctness” above U.S. security in making their push. He also repeated his arguments that both should describe the U.S. as at war with radical Islam during his address at St. Anselm University in New Hampshire.
He specifically called on Obama to release "the full and complete immigration histories" of anyone implicated in terror activities since September 11, 2001, to better inform the public.
