Washington, March 15: Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has a way with words and definitely knows how to rub people the wrong way. After his controversial statement that Muslim immigrants must not be allowed to enter US, Trump likened immigrants to a poisonous snake.
Trump, who was speaking in a private hangar at Youngstown airport recited the words from The Snake, a song by AL Wilson. The song is about an ill snake who is take home by a kind woman. The woman looks after the snake only to be bitten by it once it has recovered.
Trump said: "We have to makle sure we know who we're letting in," he said. He said in order to keep immigrants outside he would build a wall along the US-Mexico border to keep Central Americans out and another wall along Syria to keep ISIS fighters out.
Trump's earlier statements on a complete ban on entry of Muslim immigrants drew harsh criticism from everyone including President Barack Obama.
Obama had said: "It's our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim Americans should somehow be treated differently. Because when we travel down that road, we lose."
Trump will be looking forward for another victory in the Tuesday primaries which could propel him to being chosen as the Republican candidate. Ohio, Florida, Illinois, Missouri and North Carolina go to polls on Tuesday.
