Hillary wanted 550% increase in refugees; ‘Muslims not terrorists’
FLASHBACK: Hillary wanted 550% increase in Syrian refugees; claimed ‘Muslims have nothing to do with terrorism’
The new year has been rung in with the blood of dozens of innocent civilians in Istanbul. At least 75 people have been shot and at 35 of those shot have died. ISIS has taken responsibility for the attack.
At least 35 people were killed and 40 wounded in the attack, Istanbul’s governor Vasip Şahin said, calling the incident a terrorist attack.
The attack took place at the well-known Reina nightclub in the Ortakoy neighborhood, in Istanbul’s Besiktas district.
“A terrorist with a long-range weapon… brutally and savagely carried out this incident by firing bullets at innocent people who were there solely to celebrate the New Year and have fun,” Sahin told media at the scene of the attack.
Luckily for the United States elected a President that understands what the problem is. After the terror attacks in France in November of 2015, then candidate Hillary Clinton put out this tweet:
“Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.”

Hillary Clinton also wanted to increase the number of Syrian refugees that were being brought into the United States by 550% .
The issue of what percentage of an increase in the number of Syrian refugees being granted asylum in the United States Clinton would prefer has been one of the most prominent issues regarding immigration in this campaign. The White House announced in August that the United States had admitted 10,000 Syrian refugees, the upper limit in the number acceptable to the Obama administration so far.
A month later, Clinton said in an interview on CBS that she believed that number to be far too low. “I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in,” she said in September.
The website Politifact, checking Trump’s claim that Clinton was seeking a 500% increase in the number of refugees from Syria, found the actual number based on her September statements to be 550% .
