After the latest terror attack in Paris, France, President Donald Trump had a message for every country around the world.
And they’d better listen.
Paris officials are currently investigating the stabbing incident that left a 20-year-old Frenchman dead, but witnesses said the murderer shouted “Allahu Akhbar” as he ran after pedestrians with a kitchen knife.
Directly afterward, the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the heinous act.
That should be enough to convince people that ISIS, and terrorism in general, is a very real threat, and all countries must remain committed to erasing it from the face of the earth.
Unfortunately, many countries – including ours, to some extent – still aren’t getting it. Which is why Trump says a fundamental change is necessary.
After the attack, Donald took to Twitter and wrote:
So sad to see the Terror Attack in Paris. At some point countries will have to open their eyes & see what is really going on. This kind of sickness & hatred is not compatible with a loving, peaceful, & successful country! Changes to our thought process on terror must be made.

Trump didn’t explain further but he didn’t need to. We know what he meant, don’t we?
First and foremost, in order to keep countries safe, they must implement a far stricter immigration policy, and enforce those laws.
As the President said about the terrorism issue back in January:
“New report from DOJ & DHS shows that nearly 3 in 4 individuals convicted of terrorism-related charges are foreign-born.
We have submitted to Congress a list of resources and reforms … we need to keep America safe, including moving away from a random chain migration and lottery system, to one that is merit-based.”
This is exactly what needs to be done, and other countries must adopt a similar vigilance. Don’t forget that Paris and other European countries are hardly strangers to terrorism.
Just a few months ago, Paris suffered a terror attack where the gunman pledged allegiance to ISIS; more proof that stronger borders and security are required.
This is going to continue to happen if we don’t take border control seriously; very bad people will continue to exploit those holes in our security and carry out evil acts.
This is a worldwide issue and one that must be addressed immediately!
