Trump reveals few details on “extreme vetting” of immigrants

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Donald Trump is calling for “extreme vetting” of immigrants seeking admission to the United States.

But he’s providing few details on what that means or how much it would cost.

In a foreign policy speech Monday, Trump says people who “do not believe in our Constitution, or who support bigotry and hatred” will be barred from entering the country.

His proposals are the latest version of a policy that began with Trump’s unprecedented call to temporarily block Muslims from immigrating to the United States. That would include a religious test that was criticized across party lines as un-American. He’s now saying he would apply that standard to people from “terror regions” that he has not named.

Trump’s speech was aimed at resetting his struggling campaign against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
