Trump would send home Syrian refugees
Trump's remarks to CNN television came the same day Russian warplanes began air raids in Syria's center and north
Republican U.S. presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he would send thousands of Syrian refugees back to their home country if he is elected in November.
Trump's remarks to CNN television came the same day Russian warplanes began air raids in Syria's center and north - their first military engagement outside the former Soviet Union since the occupation of Afghanistan in 1979.
"Look, if Russia wants to go in there, would have been nice if we went in as a unified front, to be honest. But if Russia wants to go in there and knock out ISIS and maybe stabilize, this big migration with 200,000 people into the United States..." Trump said.
"If I win, I'm going to say it right now and I'll say it to you, those 200,000 people - they have to know this and the world will hear it - are going back.
"We're not going to accept 200,000 people that may be ISIS. We have no idea who they are. And I'm telling you now, they may come in through the weakness of (President Barack) Obama," but would return to their homeland if Trump makes it to the White House, he said.
The Americans accused Russia of striking moderate rebel factions fighting Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime under cover of their claimed assault on the ISIS.
