In speech, Trump targets Somalis in Minnesota, Maine
by Peter Cox
Donald Trump targeted Somali communities in Maine and Minnesota Thursday during a campaign speech in Portland, saying refugees from dangerous places should not be allowed in the U.S.
During the speech at Merrill Auditorium in Maine, the Republican nominee for president said that the U.S. does not do a good job of vetting refugees, which he says raises safety issues in Minnesota.
"Creating an enclave of immigrants with high unemployment that is both stressing the state's — I mean the state is having tremendous problems — its safety net, and creating a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamic terror groups," Trump said.
