Kellyanne Conway: Trump Has Strong Plans to Fight Terrorism

Fox News' "Happening Now"

Americans voted for President-elect Donald Trump because they wanted stronger leadership, and he meant it when he said he has a way to eradicate ISIS and terrorism, his transition team's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said Tuesday.

"Their bloodletting is on our own shores, in Orlando and San Bernardino, and happened as recently as yesterday in Europe," Conway told Fox News' "Happening Now" program. Trump has talked about combining efforts with other allies, she said, and his extreme vetting program of refugees is attractive to many Americans "because we don't have one now."

"You have countries that harbor, train and export terrorists ... ISIS said they would mix and mingle with the Syrian refugees," Conway said. "For all we know they are doing that and that is another problem, we just don't know who lives among us or who is migrating from country to country and what their intentions are."

Conway said she'd like to have everyone look at Trump's speech from August or September about his plans to defeat radical Islamic terrorism.

"People forgot about it, because it is not as exciting to cover as the scandal of the day or the comment of the day in politics, and that is unfortunate, because this is what people want to know about," said Conway. "He has a specific plan. What he says is we have to start looking the other way. Political correctness and convention overtake is what is incredibly important, which is protecting Americans, American allies, their interest abroad."

There have been many failures as well, she said including the FBI's failure "to see what a radicalized terrorist was doing who killed 49 innocent people at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando in May."

Trump, meanwhile, has come out in "no uncertain terms" while denouncing terrorism, said Conway.

"Americans made very clear they would prefer all of the violence stay over there among people arguing among themselves and not coming here," said Conway. "Americans feel less safe than they did eight years ago, which is a key point of the campaign."
