Trump's Claim On Clinton's Refugee Stance Is Sort Of True
Clinton does want more refugees, but she's not suggesting blindly accepting just anyone from Syria like Trump says.By Eugene Daniels | July 21, 2016
"My opponent has called for a radical 550 percent increase in Syrian refugees on top of existing massive refugee flows coming into our country already under the leadership of President Obama. She proposes this despite the fact that there's no way to screen these refugees," Donald Trump said while accepting the GOP nomination for president Thursday.
This is a pretty popular sound bite for Trump. But is it actually true? Well, sort of. President Obama has called for the U.S. to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees, and Hillary Clinton wants a lot more.
