Donald Trump is speaking out about the weekend’s explosions, slamming the leadership of election rival Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.
Trump told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” Monday that these types of events will happen more often.
“I think this is something that will maybe get — will happen perhaps more and more all over the country,” Trump said. “It’s a mess, and it’s a shame, and we’re going to have to be very tough.”
Trump thinks the answer to stopping terrorism is profiling.
The Republican presidential nominee said he agrees that there are possible foreign connections to the Saturday blasts in New Jersey and New York.
“I think there is — I think there’s many foreign connections,” he said.
“You have many, many groups, because we’re allowing these people to come into our country and destroy our country and make it unsafe for people,” Trump added.
Trump also weighed in on social media. In a series of tweets, he criticized Obama and Clinton’s leadership and sent his thoughts to the victims.
The native New Yorker also praised law enforcement for quickly apprehending the suspect, 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami.
He backed up his call for stronger profiling efforts.
On Facebook, Trump said terrorists are “hoping and praying” Clinton becomes president.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton’s campaign took to Twitter to denounce Trump as someone who “incites hatred and violence.” She called on Americans to tap into the country’s resilient spirit.
