Donald Trump expected to propose ideological test for immigration candidates

In a statement distributed to reporters, Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook called attention to a Sunday New York Times story that further explored ties between Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and former Ukrainian President's pro-Russian political party. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., a Trump adviser who spoke with ABC News.

Trump in his speech will call on replacing nation building with "foreign policy realism", aides told the AP.

Speaking with the aide of teleprompters, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump gave a calculated foreign policy speech in Youngstown, Ohio, on Monday. But if Trump's main target is ISIS doesn't this mean an alliance with Iran and Syria?

That list of anti-ISIS allies would presumably include Russian Federation. The remarks are expected to be centered on the fight against the so-called Islamic State group, also known as ISIS.

When #Donald Trump made the announcement just over a year ago that he was running for president, he also referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "murderers" and "rapists".

Immigration has fueled much of Trump's presidential campaign, including his call for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

"I call it extreme vetting", said the NY billionaire.

Under Trump's plan, immigrants would also be subjected to tests to show a commitment to US values, including religious freedom and tolerance. Various officials have accused Russian Federation and China of involvement in anti-U.S. cyber attacks.

The Republican nominee spent most of last week attempting to explain away his claims that President Obama "founded" ISIS, a comment he later described as "sarcasm" - then "not that sarcastic" after all in subsequent comments - as well as his comments that "Second Amendment people" could stop Clinton from nomination judges if she becomes president, comments many thought were about assassination. NATO, which he's criticized as "obsolete", was also named as an organization a Trump administration would work closely with.

Reading from a teleprompter to deliver the speech, he also attacked Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on her record as secretary of state and said she lacked the judgment and character to lead the country.

Republican Donald Trump said on Monday he would work closely with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to defeat Islamic State militants if he wins the White House, reversing an earlier threat that the United States might not meet its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation obligations.

But there was one line from his speech that raised immediate questions."Under those eight years before Obama came along, we didn't have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States.", said Giuliani, who presided as New York's mayor during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that brought down the Twin Towers.
