Transcript for Donald Trump on Orlando Nightclub Massacre
And we're joined this morning by Donald Trump on the phone. Mr. Trump, thank you for joining us this morning. You tweeted out yesterday, we have to be tough, smart and vigilant. What are you proposing in the wake of this tragedy. One thing we have to do, George, we have to get the people that surround these maniacs to start talking. People know when they're sickos for the large part in San Bernardino with bombs all over the apartment. In this case, we'll find out that many of the people who lived next door he had bad intentions. Nobody reports to the FBI or the police. We have to have -- we have to have a ban of people coming in from Syria and different parts of the world with this philosophy that is so hateful and so horrible. But, sir, let me interrupt you on that one, how would a ban in this case make a difference? He was born in New York. That's right. We have people whose hate is equal to his. We have stop people coming in, we have no documentation. They could be Isis. In fact some of them have cell phones with Isis flags on them. We're taking in people and it's getting worse. We're taking them in by the thousands. Hillary Clinton wants to increase it by 500%. She wants more to come in as opposed to none coming in or less coming in and that in and of itself is a disaster. And one of the other things that we have learned in the last 24 hours is that omar Mateen was interviewed by the FBI three separate times, investigated twice, yet he was able to buy a gun relatively easily, should something be done about that. He was licensed. You talk about gun control, when Obama mentioned that yesterday that was so inappropriate. The problem is we have maniac, he could have used a bomb just easily. Probably more devastating. So, that's not the problem -- Should have been more of a background check -- should someone who has been on a watch list, investigated like that, an extra level of background checks before he gets a weapon. It's very sad, he slipped through the cracks and the FBI has to be very upset about it. I'm a big fan of the FBI. They have to be very, very distraught. Finally, you have gotten some criticism about one of your tweets, talking about appreciating the congrats. Hillary Clinton's communications director said, trump said he's got political k58 attacks, weak platitudes. I have been getting thousands and thousands of tweets and letters that I was right, congratulations, I don't want congratulations, there was no congratulatory tweet. The last thing I want. I want strength, I want vigilance, I want people to report when they see something bad. I was right and I had been right and I am right. We need intelligence gathering like we have never had before. An enemy without an uniform. It's very dangerous. We're fighting an enemy without an uniform. Mr. Trump, thank you for joining us. Thank you very much, George.
