Donald Trump has a dire warning for America if the tide of refugees from the Middle East isn’t stemmed.

“Bad things will happen. A lot of bad things will happen,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said on the National Border Patrol Council’s “The Green Line” radio show.

Trump said Hillary Clinton “wants to have a very weak border” and that he “would be the exact opposite.”

He said he supports building a “safe zone” in the Middle East and would be “very very strict” and “very very vigilant” about who can enter the country.

Trump warned it would take another 9/11 for people to wake up about border security and postulated that some refugees could be being financed by terrorist groups now.

“I mean you look at it, they have cell phones,” he said. “So they don’t have money, they don’t have anything. They have cell phones. Who pays their monthly charges, right? They have cell phones with the flags, the ISIS flags on them. And then we’re supposed to say, ‘Isn’t this wonderful that we’re taking them in?’ We’re led by people that are either incompetent or they don’t have the best interests of our country at heart.”
