Trump talks test for Muslim immigrants

A week after a speech on the economy, the formal intervention on foreign policy was twofold: the Trump campaign out of a very negative spiral generated by including several controversial statements, and counter the attacks of those - Democrats as Republicans - who believe that the real estate mogul has neither the knowledge nor the judgment to lead the United States.

In a foreign policy speech on Monday, the billionaire businessman said the goal of the new commission would be to "expose" networks within the United States "that support radicalisation". In June, Trump released a policy memo that reinterpreted his initial call to ban all Muslim immigrants as a moratorium on immigration from countries with significant terrorist activity. The time is long overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today. "If elected, Trump promises " extreme filtering " of migrants wishing to travel to the United States".

"Mr. Trump will outline his vision for defeating radical Islamic terrorism, and explain how the policies of Obama-Clinton are responsible for the rise of ISIS and the spread of barbarism that has taken the lives of so many", Miller said Sunday in an email, using an alternative acronym for the Islamic State group. And his vow to end the current nation building strategy was similarly misleading. "We will partner with King Abdullah of Jordan and the president of Egypt, President Sisi, and all others who recognise this ideology of death that must be extinguished", Trump said.

On the eve of the speech, the Clinton campaign slammed Trump's campaign manager for ties to Russian Federation and pro-Kremlin interests, an apparent reference to a New York Times story published Sunday night.

The speech represented a response to Trump's critics, including many Republicans, who have expressed doubts that he has the experience and temperament to lead the U.S.in a unsafe world.

Meanwhile, The New York Times reported that corruption investigators in Ukraine say an illegal, off-the-books payment network earmarked $12.7 million in cash payments in 2007-2012 for Paul Manafort, now Trump's campaign chairman.

The Republican presidential candidate said that new arrivals should be tested to ascertain if they share Western values such as religious tolerance and the acceptance of LGBT rights.

Although Trump said that his administration will befriend all "moderate Muslims" and "amplify their voices", he affirmed that his administration will not back down against the threat of the more radical sects of Islam.

In April, he said he had a "great plan" to defeat the militants, but was keeping it secret to avoid tipping them off.

Trump's first announced his call for banning Muslims past year during the GOP primary.

"This so-called policy can not be taken seriously", senior policy adviser Jake Sullivan said in a statement.

In the Cold War, we had an ideological screening test. "And I would say the co-founder would be crooked Hillary Clinton". "I said don't go in, OK, to Iraq", Trump said, citing his frequent and false claim that he always opposed the Iraq War. "Only those who we expect to flourish in our country and to embrace a tolerant American society should be issued visas", he said.

Trump also said that terrorists would be sent to Guantanamo and tried in military tribunals.

"Trump is already making our country less safe".
