Speaking in Ohio, Trump promised to bar Syrian refugees from entering the US – if he becomes president.
“A Trump administration is going to suspend immigration from terror prone regions and we will suspend the Syrian refugee programme. That was easy.

Trump also claimed again that Clinton was corrupt. The New York businessman is currently trailing his Democratic rival in most national polls.
