Trump on Brussels in January: ‘Hellhole,’ ‘There Has to Be Some Assimilation’

Donald Trump reacted to the Brussels terrorist attacks this morning by calling Brussels a “disaster city,” in a line very similar to what he was saying about the Belgian capital.

Back in January, during a Fox Business Network interview, Maria Bartiromo asked Trump about his proposed Muslim U.S. entry ban. Trump said, “There’s something going on, Maria. Go to Brussels, go to Paris… There’s something going on, and it’s not good, where they want Sharia law.”

And then he said this:

“There has to be some assimilation… I was in Brussels 20 years ago, a long time ago, so beautiful––it’s like living in a hellhole right now. You go to these different places, there’s something going on.”

Trump was back on Fox Business this morning again reiterating that “we’re having problems with the Muslims.”

You can watch Trump’s January interview above (the relevant part starts at the 1:20 mark), via Fox Business.
