Trump warns ‘horrifying attacks like in France’ will come to US if Biden elected as world shocked by church beheading
DONALD Trump warned if Joe Biden is elected then "horrifying attacks" like the beheading in France will come to the US.
Trump's comments came as he spoke to supporters during a rally in Tampa, Florida, as the world remains shocked by the beheading in Europe.
"Biden wants to terminate our travel bans and surge refugees from the most dangerous places in the world," Trump claimed of his Democratic rival.
"He will open the floodgate to radical Islamic terrorism – and you saw three days ago what happened the beheading in France, and today it happened again.
Trump then offered his condolences to France's president, before claiming that similar attacks will happen in the US if Biden wins the election.
"And we give our warmest regards to President Macron, a friend of ours, a friend of mine, a friend of the first lady…" he added.
"Under the Biden plan, the horrifying attacks in France will come to our cities and our towns – and I don't want to speak too loudly about this, and I knock on wood," Trump claimed.
He proceeded to knock on the podium where he stood speaking.
"This is real wood…. but you know look what's happened," he said, referencing terror attacks in France.
"Don't want to say, long time…" he trailed off.
Speaking of Iran, Trump then vowed that if he wins on November 3rd, "they're going to want to make a deal.
"We want them to be a great country, but they cannot have a nuclear weapon," Trump said.
Trump's comments at his Florida rally came hours after he shared a statement on the attacks on social media.
"Our hearts are with the people of France," Trump tweeted.
"America stands with our oldest Ally in this fight.
"These Radical Islamic terrorist attacks must stop immediately. No country, France or otherwise can long put up with it!"
The series of "terror" attacks in one day left three people dead in Nice.
The suspect has been named by police as 21-year-old Brahim Aoussaoui, who arrived in Europe just weeks ago.
Victims have been identified by police as Vincent Loquès, 54, who is understood to be the church's warden; a 60-year-old woman, and a 44-year-old woman.
One of the women in the attacks was said to have been beheaded inside a church.
The Nice attacks came just weeks after teacher Samuel Paty, 47, was beheaded by 18-year-old Abdullah Anzorov.
Paty had shown cartoons on the Prophet Mohammed in a lesson on the importance of free speech.
