In the final Republican debate of the year Mr Trump, the clear front-runner for the party’s presidential nomination, also ruled out ever running as an independent candidate.
In a debate that focused on national security the billionaire businessman said his anti-Muslim policy, and building a wall along the Mexican border, would make America safer.
He said: “We are not talking about isolation, we’re talking about security. We’re not talking about religion, we’re talking about security. Our country is out of control.”
He said “tens of thousands of people” were entering America with “cell phones with Isis flags on them…I don’t think so.”
Mr Trump went on: “They’re not coming to this country if I’m president. And if Obama has brought some to this country they are leaving, they’re going, they’re gone.”
