2016 presidential polls latest update: Trump again makes Islamophobic outburst on CNN
Donald Trumpâ€™s Islamophobic comments continue without a pause. In an interview on CNN the Republican front runner said that Islam hates America.
This whole argument looks childish aimed only to keep his core vote bank happy. America was discovered at least eleven hundred years after Islam was born in Arabia.
The billionaire businessman initially talked against Mexican immigrants, then took potshot against undocumented immigrants and then went on to target many other groups. He has also said that he will build a wall separating the US from Mexico.
Later he started attacking Muslims. In one of interviews he said a database of Muslims should be prepared. If that was not enough he demanded that Muslimsâ€™ entry in the US should be completely banned.
Now going a step further he tried to implicate the religion itself claiming “Islam hates us” and asserted that those having hatred against the US cannot be allowed to enter the country. “I think Islam hates us,” Trump told CNN, deploring the “tremendous hatred” that he said partly defined the religion. Trump, 69, maintained that the war was against radical Islam, but said, “it’s very hard to define. It’s very hard to separate. Because you don’t know who’s who.” Asked if the hate was “in Islam itself,” Trump said that was for the media to figure out.
He went on to say that this must be taken seriously. “You’re gonna have to figure that out, OK?” he said when asked if there was hatred in the religion itself. “We have to be very vigilant. We have to be very careful. And we can’t allow people coming into this country who have this hatred of the United States,” Trump said.
The real estate czar made headlines in December when he called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the US “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” Despite widespread condemnation of the remarks, Trump has stood by the proposal. When asked yesterday to outline how he would project power overseas, Trump said “there can be no doctrine” Trump also tried to clarify his position on how far he would go in targeting the families of terrorists.
