‘Shut our borders’: Trump calls for the surveillance of Muslims on US soil and advocates waterboarding terror suspects after Brussels attack

Donald Trump commented on the suicide bombings that occurred in Brussels Tuesday morning just hours after the brutal terror attacks.

‘Do you all remember how beautiful and safe a place Brussels was. Not anymore, it is from a different world! U.S. must be vigilant and smart!’ wrote the Republican front-runner on Twitter.

Trump then said in an interview on Fox News the US needs to ‘shut the borders,’ a statement he repeated later in the morning while appearing on Today.

In that appearance he also told Matt Lauer he is a firm believer in using torture to get information from people behind attacks like the one in Brussels, stating; ‘Waterboarding is fine.’

    OT. Rob Ford died. RIP.

    Why is Donald Trump the only one telling the truth?

    • Because he knows people are fed up with a lying political class that means us harm?

        It really is that simple, and his detractors can’t seem to wrap their heads around it.

    • See: Balls, brass.

      Because he has nothing to lose and everything to gain. He can always resume his business if he is denied election.

      Trump is fearless. That’s why the people support him — particularly following the spineless commie weasel now occupying the WH.

        a Muslim weasel?

    On this rare occasion, I turned on my (ota- no cable) TV Ch 11 Hamtown for Brussels news update. After that finished, it was nonstop “Bloomberg North” a Globull Warming shilling BS infomercial that went on forever. Even David Miller made an appearance.
    Truly disgusting.

    • Ugh.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      I turned on CNN – the news channel with an endless drum track – early this morning from 6:15am to approx. 7:55am when I had to leave for work today. *ugh* At least it’s not as awful as so much mainstream Canadian news coverage propaganda.

    Muslims should be banned from airports and all modes of public transportation, make their lives so miserable they can’t wait to leave.

      Give them a one-way hajj.

        Nothing like a Hajj Stampede every Ramadan-a-ding-dong-a-rama to make my heart sing with joy!

    The muslim community just saying thank you to Belgium for the welcome, welfare, health care, education, housing, etc in their own culturally diverse way. Now shut up and pay attention, we’re about to get a week worth of empty lipservice by western politicians about the religion of peace.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      I’m bracing myself for numerous imams resembling apes to be trotted out by the CBC Propaganda Corporation, the BBC, etc. etc. etc., talking about ISIS and how it is not “true” Islam, yadda yadda yadda….. (not that I really watch that crap anyhow, but it just might be entertaining and infuriating all at the same time)

    As a Canadian who frequently travels to the USA, including Manhattan often enough, I am uncertain how a “shut the borders” policy might affect me, American businesses depending on tourism from Canada and abroad, hotels, attractions, etc., not to mention US-Canada trade. In any case, allowing for rhetoric, he does make some sense to me.

    • 3MileLimit

      Be that as it may, I and many, many Americans are not worried about how it may or may not impact businesses. I care more about the protection of my nation, America, not money. I’m tired of the many having to suffer the cries from the few. No more. Slam the borders shut.

      • Etobicoke_Gladiator

        I feel your anger, but I am just some white guy who wants to spend $ in the USA and enjoy Manhattan, Nashville, or wherever I travel. Surely, Trump would want real business to continue while punishing muzzies and illegals, no? (Oops, I stupidly replied to myself sbove…)

    Interesting how the article says he is a firm believer in using torture, then stating “waterboarding is fine”. Is waterboarding really torture or just enhanced interrogation? Nothing like pushing an agenda, huh?

    • Kell

      LOL…have you ever experienced water-boarding? enhances the shit out of a good interrogation! odd, most folks fear the ‘feeling’ of drowning than any other form of “enhancement’…..anticipation of death is worse than death itself!

    Prepare for the old burning mosk and a muslima having her hijab tugged on a subway in either Montreal or Toronto shtick.
