Trump vows to ‘stop dead’ Mideast immigration: ‘We have no idea who they are’

President-elect tells Ohio supporters he will ‘keep America safe,’ prefer ‘stability, not chaos’ in foreign policy, ‘because we want to rebuild our country’

Speaking to a raucous audience of thousands of supporters in Cincinnati, Ohio at the start of what his staff have billed as a “Thank you” tour of the American Midwest, Trump seemed to double down on key campaign promises about Muslim immigration and a wall on the Mexican border.
“The job of the president is to keep America safe, and that will always be my highest priority,” Trump said.
“We will do everything in our power to keep the scourge of terrorism out of our country. People are pouring in from regions of the Middle East. We have no idea who they are, where they come from, what they’re thinking. And we’re going to stop that dead, cold, flat,” he said.
“People coming into the country have to have the potential to love us, not to hate us,” he said.
Trump has spent the weeks since his surprise election victory on November 8 dialing back some of his promises, suggesting the Mexico border wall could be part-fence and indicating no willingness to pursue criminal charges against Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
But, he told the crowd, “Now is not the time to downsize our dreams.”
He repeated his recent threat that, despite Constitutional protections, “if people burn the American flag, there should be consequences.” And he repeated the pledge to “construct a great wall at the border.”

He added: “We will stop looking to topple regimes. Our goal is stability, not chaos, because we want to rebuild our country. It’s time.
