Trump takes U-turn on US refugee policy
NEW YORK, Oct 1: US Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has taken a sharp U-turn over the American policy on the Syrian refugees saying he would send them back to their home if the billionaire becomes the president.
In a speech during a Hampshire rally, Trump said, "If I win they're back" with the president hopeful marking a reversal in policy. He had earlier told Fox News that the US should take in more refugees.
While Europe has been hit hard by its worst ever refugee crisis, the US itself has pledged to take over 10,000 refugees from Syria next year. Trump fears the refugees could be Islamic militants ISIS.
"I hear we want to take in 200,000 Syrians. And they could be - listen, they could be ISIS," Trumph told the rally at the Keene High School.
Describing them as a "200,000-man army", he later added: "I'm putting the people on notice that are coming here from Syria as part of this mass migration, that if I win, if I win, they're going back."
