Trump on Orlando: US in ‘Absolute War,’ ‘Only Going to Get Worse’

Renewing his call to ban Syrians from coming into the country, Donald Trump told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” that the U.S. is in an “absolute war” because we “don’t know who it is or where they’re coming from.”

Trump was responding to the mass shooting in Orlando, where gunman Omar Mateen took the lives of at 49 people at a gay nightclub early Sunday morning.

“There’s nothing like what’s going on right now,” Trump said. “We don’t know who they are. It’s absolute war, but we don’t have uniforms, we don’t know who it is or where they’re coming from . . . And as a country we don’t do anything about it. And we’re going to get smart. It’s only going to get worse.”

Trump is retooling his speech today in Manchester, New Hampshire, to focus on terrorism, where he is expected to renew his call to shut down the borders, especially to Syrians.
