Real estate mogul Donald Trump said that the ongoing hostage crisis in Sydney — where an Iranian man displayed Islamic banners while taking hostages in a Lindt cafe — “will happen in this country,” citing the lack of respect for America in the Middle East.

“You look at those images, that could happen anywhere,” said “Fox and Friends” host Steve Doocy, “You live on Fifth Avenue here in New York City. There’s a Lindt chocolate shop close to your house.” (RELATED: #NotAllMuslims Take Hostages In Sydney, Australia)

“Maybe that will be next,” replied Trump. “And the fact is they no longer respect this part of the world, our world. They no longer respect it. They see what’s happened. They see what they get away it, and they just don’t have respect.”

“And it will happen in this country,” he predicted, “and it’ll happen more and more and throughout the world. A lot of it is a lack of respect, and they certainly don’t have that.”
