Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told crowds in Michigan and Minnesota on Sunday his administration would not admit refugees without local support, using appearances in states with growing Muslim communities to criticize Democrat Hillary Clinton's support for accepting people fleeing Syria.

Trump said in Minneapolis that people there had already seen the results of "faulty" vetting with Minnesota's community of Somali Muslims. He said what was happening in Michigan, home to several cities with Muslim communities, was "disgraceful."

Trump held rallies in both states as part of his final push toward Tuesday's presidential election, even though Michigan and Minnesota traditionally support Democrats in White House races.
