The Politico reported:
The Obama administration is deliberately sending Syrian refugees to states led by Republican governors, Donald Trump alleged Tuesday.
Trump, who was speaking to conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, said of the refugees, “They send them to the Republicans, not to the Democrats, you know because they know the problem … why would we want to bother the Democrats?”
Trump’s comments come a day after more than two dozen governors, mainly Republicans, vowed to resist federal efforts to settle refugees in their states. President Barack Obama has said the U.S. will accept 10,000 refugees over the next year. Trump often cites a far higher figure — 250,000 — that has no basis in fact. On Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted, “Refugees from Syria are now pouring into our great country. Who knows who they are – some could be ISIS. Is our president insane?”
1854 Syrians have been accepted into the United States so far.
Trump had another massive rally last night in Tennessee.
