President Trump on Friday threatened to “reciprocate” travel warnings issued against the U.S. following a pair of mass shootings.
Asked about his reactions to the travel advisories, Trump replied, “Well, I can’t imagine that. But if they did that, we’d just reciprocate.”
“We are a very reciprocal nation, with me as the head. When somebody does something negative to us in terms of a country, we do it to them,” he added.
“Look, our country has been taken advantage of by foreign countries, even allies — including allies, and in many cases, more than anybody else,” Trump said. “We’ve been taken advantage of for many, many years, and it stops. It stopped.”
Uruguay, Venezuela and Japan issued warnings this week after the U.S. experienced a pair of mass shootings last weekend that killed 31 people. Japan warned of “the potential for gunfire incidents everywhere in the United States,” and described the country as a “gun society.”
