Donald Trump has a solution to the refugee crisis: Send them back

Just a periodic reminder that this man wants to be president of the United States...

Donald Trump has said that if he was president he would send any refugees back home.

In a speech in New Hampshire, the inexplicable Republican front-runner said Syrian refugees seeking asylum in the US could be Isis terrorists.

"They could be Isis, I don't know [emphasis ours]," he said of refugees in Europe. "They are all men and they are all strong.”

He added that the refugee crisis could actually be one of the "great tactical ploys of all time, a 200,000-man army, maybe”:

If I win, they’re going back.

So far only 1,500 Syrians have been granted asylum in the US, but secretary of state John Kerry has pledged to raise the annual cap on refugees worldwide to 85,000 in 2016, and to 100,000 the year after that.

Quiz: Real Donald Trump policy or policy of our warped imaginations?
