Kyle Sandilands has thrown his support behind Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban, insisting “we’ve let the troublemakers get away with this sh*t for so long.”

Trump has caused uproar by restricting the visas of visitors from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, halting refugee admissions for 120 days and suspending Syrian refugees indefinitely.

And while the world is up in arms, shock jock Kyle says he can see the merits in Trump’s move, arguing that it’s aimed at promoting safety rather than persecuting Muslims.

“We trust government to keep us safe in a country like this and a country like America and a country like Canada,” he said on this morning’s Kyle and Jackie O Show.

“It’s not a ban on Muslims, it’s a ban on certain countries…”

Arguing that the “safety of the majority comes first”, Kyle said that making gun ownership illegal in the States wouldn’t “stop a guy from cutting a woman’s head off.”

“It’s all well to say it’s not nice, until someone gets blown up or shot. This sh*t’s real,” said the star, who admits he doesn’t vote in Australia.

“That’s why they’ve put these bans in, to stop the bad, not to stop the good.

“I don’t think it’s great, I feel for all the people who are innocent. I’m just being real as to what they’re doing and why they’re doing it.”
