The Telegraph: The Syrian refugee debate has become a national embarrassment

The Telegraph: The Syrian refugee debate has become a national embarrassment

Article by Charles Krauthammer


Facing a massive failure of seven years of Democratic foreign policy stewardship, the GOP candidates have instead tried to outbid each other in being tough on Syrian refugees. This descent into xenophobia was led, as usual, by Donald Trump. Amid bushels of word salad, he concurred with registering American Muslims, raised alarms about Arab-American treachery ("thousands and thousands" on TV cheering the World Trade Center collapse) and promised not only to deny entry to Syrian refugees, but to send back the ones already here.

Can you see it? Packing them onto his 757, the one with gold-plated seatbelts, then dumping them – orphans, widows, the lot - into a war zone to await the next regime barrel bomb.


The stance of Republican presidential candidates is shameful.
