Donald Trump and the Middle East

Underlying Trump's calls to restrict immigration are the same motivations that the government has long used - chief among them concerns over jobs and national security.

Donald Trump, during a well-received foreign policy speech, proposed a system for screening immigrants he called "extreme vetting" in which applicants would be queried about their commitment to the United States Constitution and traditions of tolerance and civil rights.

While Trump sought to take his approach to confronting terrorism beyond his heated rhetoric and policies, vowing to work with moderate Muslim communities and countries, the billionaire also called on the USA to guard against admitting immigrants and refugees from countries with widespread anti-gay, anti-Semitic or misogynistic views and laws.

"Only those who we expect to flourish in our country - and to embrace a tolerant American society - should be issued visas".

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump said Monday it's time to "chart a new course" in the battle against "radical Islamic terrorism", though much of what he proposed is similar to the course already set by President Obama.

He called for parents, teachers and others to promote "American culture" and encourage "assimilation". Trump said his policies "will help heal the divisions in our country", but it's hard to see how that would happen, when his own campaign is doing just the opposite.

In a speech at Youngstown State in OH, a swing state, the Republican presidential nominee proposed using questionnaires, social media, and interviews with the family and friends of applicants to determine their stance on issues such as religious freedom, gender equality, and gay rights.

"We should only admit into this country those who share our values and respect our people", he ventured, promising to temporarily suspend immigration from "the most unsafe and volatile regions of the world" that export terrorism. In a speech in OH, the candidate outlined his plans to combat Islamic extremism, including a new screening test for arrivals to the US.

The address comes during a trying stretch for Trump's presidential campaign. Biden vigorously vouched for Clinton's readiness for the White House and called Trump's foreign policy views "dangerous" and "un-American".

Seventh Circuit likely to uphold Wisconsin voter ID law
On Wednesday, however, a US appeals court issued a stay in the case, allowing the "strict" practices to remain in place. It was in effect for the April presidential primary and Tuesday's general election primary.

There is no evidence that ever happened, AP reported, pointing out that the San Bernardino police chief said no one reported knowing anything about the married couple who killed 14 people in a December 2, 2015, terrorist attack.

Trump is right that the Islamic State capitalized on the political and security vacuum in Iraq in 2014, but it's not clear that a long-term US military occupation to hold and exploit Iraqi's oil resources would have led to a more stable outcome.

News reports from Syria say that Russian airstrikes on behalf of the murderous Assad regime are killing countless civilians-the very refugees that Trump would bar from entry to the U.S.

Trump challenged Clinton's fitness to be president, declaring she lacks the "mental and physical stamina" to take on the Islamic State.

He was vague about what he would do differently to hit IS in its strongholds in Iraq and Syria. And he'll argue that the United States needs to work with anyone who shares the mission of destroying the Islamic State group and other extremist organizations, regardless of other disagreements. "And nor would they agree to pay for liberation or be strong-armed into keeping USA armed forces there". But they have been unable to reach an agreement on which militant groups could be targeted.

In a speech in swing state Ohio, Trump will also call for "foreign policy realism" and an end to nation-building if elected president. It severely restricted people from the Middle East and outright banned anyone from Asia, while prioritizing those of European and Christian backgrounds.

Obama has held up Bush's years-long commitment to setting up and securing a new government in Iraq after the initial invasion as a reason to avoid USA military intervention in countries like Syria. But after his proposal for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" was denounced by both Republicans and Democrats as a violation of religious freedom, Trump has since made alterations. "He favors "extreme vetting" - as far as I know that is a skateboarding term", Steel told CNN's Jake Tapper.

Mr Trump's first announced his call for banning Muslims past year.
