Donald Trump, the front-running U.S. Presidential candidate for the
Republican Party, has declared that once “so beautiful”, living in
Brussels is “like living in a hell hole” because of the lack of
“assimilation” by the Muslim population.
Donald Trump was being interviewed by Maria Bartiromo on the Fox Business Network
when he was again asked about his proposal for a moratorium on Muslims
travelling to the U.S. in order to keep the country safe from terrorism.
In his ‘take no prisoners’ style of political discourse to which
followers of American politics have become accustomed, he responded:
“There’s something going on, Maria. Go to Brussels, got to Paris, go
to different places, there’s something going on, and it’s not good,
where they want sharia law….
“You know there has to be some assimilation, there is no
assimilation. There’s something bad going on, and until we find out what
it is so we can correct it…
“You go to Brussels — I was in Brussels a long time ago, 20 years
ago, so beautiful, everything so beautiful — it’s like living in a
hellhole right now.
“You go to these different places, there’s something going on.”
Mr Trump’s comments were made in light of the fact that several
suspects allegedly connected to November’s terrorist attacks in Paris
lived in the Belgian capital, including the troubled Molenbeek district visited by Breitbart London last year.
Brussels itself was placed under the highest level terror threat from
21 November to 26 November, during which time bars, restaurants,
museums, shops and even schools were restricted in opening times or
closed, and the entire metro system was shut down.
A month later the Mayor of Brussels cancelled his city’s annual New Year’s fireworks display due to the ongoing terrorist threat hanging over it, declaring: “It is better not to take risks.”
