Say What? Trump Makes Rambling Flip-Flops on Muslim Immigration [VIDEOS]

To paraphrase a line from Eminem’s hit song “Slim Shady:” “Won’t the real Donald Trump please stand up, please stand up, please stand up.”

It appears that Trump has flip-flopped yet again, this time on the issue that skyrocketed him to popularity: immigration.


If you remember, back in December, after the San Bernardino, CA, attacks, Trump called for “a total and complete shutdown” on Muslims entering the US, “until we can figure out what’s going on.” Later in May he backtracked a bit, saying the idea was “just a suggestion.”


Just after the Orlando terror attacks earlier this month, Trump seemed to double down once again on Muslim immigration: “I will suspend immigration from areas of the world when there is a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe, or our allies, until we understand how to end these threats.”

Then, on Saturday, while on the golf links at Trump Turnberry in Scotland — the most fabulous, most awesome, greatest course ever built in the annals of golf — Trump was asked by a CBS reporter to clarify his position on Muslim immigration into the US. He was specifically asked if he would ban a Muslim emigrating to the US from the United Kingdom.

Nope. Wouldn’t bother him. Fore!

In an interview with the UK’s Daily Mail, conducted during his stay in Scotland, Trump also made the following head-scratching comments about Muslim immigration:

‘Everybody has to be vetted … whether it’s here or anywhere. They have to be vetted. They have to be vetted strongly.’

‘I don’t want people coming in from the terror countries. You have terror countries. I don’t want them, unless they’re very, very strongly vetted.’

‘In any case, we don’t want people coming in unless they’re very strongly vetted.’

‘I don’t care where’ immigrants come from.

‘But they’re going to be even more severely vetted if it’s one of the terror countries.’

And what are those terror countries?

‘They’re pretty well decided. All you have to do is look!. . . I mean, people are looking at certain countries, and they’re pretty well decided already.’

Say what?

Right now the US State Department lists only three nations as state sponsors of terrorism, and those are Iran, Sudan, and Syria. So what about terrorists that arise from European nations? We saw what happened in Paris last year, and in London in July of 2005 with the deadly subway bombings.

And yet Trump said he would have no problem with a Muslim from the UK.

Furthermore, in a recent interview with Bloomberg, Trump was asked about his much ballyhooed proposals to deport illegal immigrants. He said this:

“President Obama has mass deported vast numbers of people — the most ever, and it’s never reported. I think people are going to find that I have not only the best policies, but I will have the biggest heart of anybody. We’re going to do it in a very humane fashion. Believe me. I have a bigger heart than you do. We’re going to do it in a very human fashion.”

Oh, wait, what about all those mass deportations he promised his fawning crowds? The “deportation force” he said would rid the US of illegal immigrants in two years? Trump said he would not call it “mass deportation.”

That’s right — those promises of deporting illegals are just red meat to toss to his groupies.

So what would it take to change the minds of his devotees? A couple of days ago Jimmy Kimmel asked some Trumpers what it would take for the bloom to come off the Trump rose.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I do know that with the choice between Trump or Hillary Clinton, I am very, very fearful for my nation.
