Billionaire businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump is questioning the mental soundness of President Obama in light of the administration’s plans to allow Syrian refugees into the United States.

“Refugees are pouring into our great country from Syria. We don’t even know who they are. They could be [Islamic State]. They could be anybody. What’s our president doing? Is he insane?” Mr. Trump said in a short video posted to social media on Tuesday.

A number of governors have moved to try to prevent the Obama administration from shipping Syrian refugees to their states in the wake of last week’s attacks in Paris.

Mr. Obama, who plans to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees in 2016, has said the United States must step up and do its part to help the people fleeing from the country.
