Trump: France, others hit by terror may face more screening


WASHINGTON - Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is asserting that countries like France that he says are compromised by terrorism may be subjected to the "extreme vetting" he proposes as a deterrent to attacks in the US.


When asked if his proposal might lead to a point when not a lot of people from overseas are allowed into the US, Trump said, "Maybe we get to that point" and added: "We have to be smart and we have to be vigilant and we have to be strong."


In an interview to air Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," Trump also rejected suggestions that his stance on requiring NATO members to pay their share; defended Fox News founder Roger Ailes, who left the network amid accusations of sexual harassment; criticized rival Hillary Clinton's newly named running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, for accepting gifts while Virginia's governor; dismissed descriptions of his nomination acceptance speech as "dark," instead calling it "optimistic"; and expressed disapproval of David Duke, the former Ku Klux Klan leader who is seeking a Senate seat from Louisiana.
