    A safe zone will be built in Syria and the Gulf States will pay for it, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump said in a speech in the state Florida during the primaries in 12 US states known as Super Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) —"We are going to build a safe zone, it is going to be in Syria, and I am going to get the Gulf States, who have more money than anybody, to pay for it, because they should," Trump stated on Tuesday night.

    Trump noted that radical Islamic terrorism is "a big, big problem" for the United States, and there is no way he, as a possible future president of the United States, would allow refugees from the Middle East come into the country.

    Trump has already won five states in the Super Tuesday primary contest — Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Massachusetts and Virginia — according to projections and vote results so far.
