Trump has been criticized on foreign policy, but it certainly seems he was dead on here.
Check it out:
Can I share with you something from the New York Times back on January… What was this? If I may read it… It’s January 27th. This is March the 22th. So almost two months. The headline is: “Donald Trump Finds New City to Insult.” Dateline London: “He incensed Paris and London by saying that some of their neighborhoods were so overrun with radicals that the police were too scared to enter. He raised Scottish tempers by threatening to pull the plug on his investments there, including his luxury golf courses, if British politicians barred him from entering Britain. Now Donald J. Trump has upset the already beleaguered people of Belgium, calling its capital, Brussels, ‘a hellhole.’
“Asked by the Fox Business Network anchor Maria Bartiromo about the feasibility of his proposal to bar foreign Muslims from entering the United States, Mr. Trump argued that Belgium and France had been blighted by the failure of Muslims in these countries to integrate,” and to assimilate. “Trump said to Maria Bartiromo…” I know it’s Bart-ih-romo, but you listen to the way they say it, it’s “Barch-ih-romo.” Anyway, I’m just pronouncing the way I hear it, folks. Anyway. He said to Maria Bartiromo, “There is something going on, Maria. Go to Brussels. Go to Paris. Go to different places. There is something going on and it’s not good, where they want Shariah law, where they want this, where they want things that” just aren’t good.
And less than two months later, Belgium blows up. Brussels blows up. The New York Times:“Donald Trump Finds New City to Insult.” Story today from BuzzFeed: “Belgian Authorities Overwhelmed by Terror Investigations — Within minutes of a bomb blast at Brussels’ main airport, mobile phone and internet networks crashed. After a second attack struck a metro station in Maelbeek, which feeds the main European Union complex…” And that’s… Again, from my first hour, that’s huge. See, to understand this — and please… Look, you might think this is a little over the top. It isn’t, folks, it isn’t.
To leftists and to quasi-leftists, to anybody who’s not a conservative, let’s just put it that way. Europe, that’s the site, Europe is the site of utopia. Denmark, Brussels, Sweden, it’s all there, that’s where the grand experiment’s already begun. That’s where it’s going to eventually flower. That’s where utopia is, Europe. And these clowns have come along and they blew it up, “My God, do they not know? If we could all live together there, we can live in harmony, we can live in peace, we can live without conflict. Don’t they know why they –“
They are taking this personally. I guarantee you, blowing up “Maelbeek, which feeds the main European Union complex,” that’d be like blowing up the underground railroad subway system, whatever, to the US capitol. You know, hit anything, but that, oh, my God, this is a direct hit on our utopian site.
