Bill Clinton: Rebuild Detroit with Syrian Refugees

In a previously little-noticed video from February at the Clinton Global Initiative, former President Bill Clinton suggested that the U.S. use Syrian refugees to rebuild Detroit.

“The truth is that the big loser in this over the long run is going to be Syria. This is an enormous opportunity for Americans,” Bill Clinton said about the Syrian migrant crisis.

Because we need Lebanon on our border…

    And when Donald Trump mentions even the possibility of Syrian ‘refugees’ taking jobs from African-Americans the media flies off the handle in outrage, but here is the husband of Trump’s opponent expressing support of just that happening.

    Even accepting the ideas that these are refugees, and that they are capable and willing to work, Detroit has all these empty houses and such because there was no work and people left. What exactly would these people be doing after fixing their own houses?
