*It most likely won’t surprise you to know that GOP presidential front runner Donald Trump called into “Fox and Friends” to put in his two cents on the terror attacks in Brussels that have so far taken the lives of upwards of 30 people.
“I think it’s absolutely horrible,” Trump told Fox News hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt told and Brian Kilmeade Tuesday morning.
“I’ve been talking about this for a long time. Brussels was a beautiful place,” Trump said. “Zero crime, and now it’s a disaster city. It’s a total disaster and we have to be very careful in the United States… We have to be very, very vigilant as to who we allow into this country.”
Trump, who has previously called for a temporary ban on allowing Muslims into the United States, went on to say:
“I would close up our borders to people until we figure out what is going on.”
Trump said immigrants aren’t assimilating to other countries’ cultures and the U.S. has to be vigilant.
“This is what I’ve been saying for a long time, and I guess it’s at least a small part of the reason why I’m the No. 1 front-runner,” he told “Fox & Friends” in a phone interview Tuesday. “I mean, people are very concerned about this, and they’re very concerned about the security of this country.”
Trump called Brussels a “hellhole” and again called for increased border security and accused the government of being oblivious to U.S. immigration.
“We have no idea what’s happening. Our government has absolutely no idea what’s happening, but they’re coming into our country,” Trump said. “They’re coming in by the thousands and just watch what happens — I’m a pretty good prognosticator — just watch what happens over the years. It won’t be pretty.”
On Tuesday morning, two explosions rocked the Brussels airport and a third explosion went off in the Maasbeek subway station close to the European Union headquarters buildings. Initial reports indicate that more than 30 people were killed and many more injured.
Officials described them as acts of terrorism and shut down all public transportation in the Belgian capital. The attacks came four days after the arrest in Brussels of Paris terror suspect Salah Abdeslam.
The Islamic State has taken credit for the Brussels attacks.
