On his Monday radio show, conservative talker Mark Levin, once a staunch opponent of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, praised Trump for a speech he had given earlier in the day in Youngstown, OH outlining how he would handle the threat of terrorism on the homeland.
“Trump gave a pretty good speech today,” Levin said. “People ought to listen to it. When he’s focused, when he’s on message and when says things that most of us agree with, we ought to acknowledge that. We ought to acknowledge it if we’re going to be intellectually honest, right Jonah? We’re going to be intellectually honest.”
“These are really good things he is saying,” he added.
Levin noted Trump’s pledge to vet immigrants and said if they favor Sharia over the Constitution, it would be a disqualifier to come to the United States.
“If you do not accept the Constitution as the law of the land, but you accept Sharia as the law of the land, you don’t get to come here,” he said. “Because you cannot assimilate. You will not assimilate. You do not get to come to the United States of America. You don’t have a birthright if you are born outside of the United States to come into the United States. And it seems to me this is just a basic standard. It’s not a high wall.”
Levin went on to praise Trump for pointing failures of President Barack Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy, how an influx of immigrants has threatened Germany and how he wants to work with NATO to take on the threat of ISIS.
