DONALD Trump has warned that if Joe Biden is elected, “horrific attacks” like the beheading in France will come to the United States.
Trump’s comments came as he addressed supporters at a rally in Tampa, Florida, as the world remains shocked by the beheading in Europe.
“Biden wants to end our travel bans and bring in refugees from the most dangerous places in the world,” Trump said of his Democratic rival.
“It will open the door of the flood to radical Islamic terrorism – and you saw three days ago what happened during the beheading in France, and today it has happened again.
Trump then offered his condolences to the French president, before asserting that similar attacks would occur in the United States if Biden wins the election.
“And we send our warmest greetings to President Macron, one of our friends, one of my friends, a friend of the first lady…”, he added.
“As part of the Biden plan, the horrific attacks in France will hit our towns and cities – and I don’t want to talk too loudly about it, and I’m knocking on the wood,” Trump said.
He then knocked on the podium where he was speaking.
“It’s real wood… but you know, look what happened,” he said, referring to the terrorist attacks in France.
“I don’t mean, long…” he paused.
Speaking about Iran, Trump then vowed that if he wins on November 3, “they’re going to want to make a deal.
“We want them to be a great country, but they can’t have a nuclear weapon,” Trump said.
Trump’s comments at his Florida rally came hours after he shared a statement about the attacks on social media.
“Our hearts are with the French people,” Trump tweeted.
“America stands alongside our oldest ally in this fight.
“These radical Islamic terrorist attacks must end immediately. No country, neither France, nor otherwise can endure them for long! ”
The series of “terrorist” attacks in one day left three dead in Nice.
The suspect was named by police as Brahim Aoussaoui, 21, who arrived in Europe just a few weeks ago.
The victims were identified by police as Vincent Loquès, 54, who is believed to be the director of the church; a 60-year-old woman and a 44-year-old woman.
