Donald Trump for President 2016: Jeb Bush attacks him on suggesting database to track Muslims

Donald Trump had said that if elected as the next president of the United States, he will create a database of Muslims in the country showing their religion. The announcement was so much abhorring that the whole world was left stunned, unable to find words to denounce the horrible idea.

Though Donald Trump is known for his foot in mouth disease, these past weeks he is leading the Islamophobia drive in the US. Earlier he had claimed he will shut the mosques across the nation that claims to be the champion of freedom.

Nonetheless after being attacked by people of all hues across the US and beyond, many of whom belonged to his own Republican Party, Donald Trump said he doesn’t plan to do so.Donald-Trump

The real estate czar had last week said he will shutter the mosques in the US. “Nobody wants to say this and nobody wants to shut down religious institutions or anything, but you understand this…We’re gonna have no choice…There’s absolutely no choice. Some really bad things are happening and they’re happening fast”.

In another interview Donald Trump said, “You’re gonna have to do something…Some bad things are happening – and a lot of them are happening in the mosque. And you’re gonna have to do something. And I’m not the only one saying this. Other countries are saying this, frankly. But some really bad things are happening”

There is no denying the fact that such statements are forcing many to wonder if Islamophobia has become an official Republican stand.

Nonetheless former Florida Governor tried to repair his image when he said it was simply abhorrent. “I find it abhorrent that Donald Trump is suggesting we register people…You’re talking about internment. You’re talking about closing mosques. You’re talking about registering people. And that’s just wrong — I don’t care about campaigns…It’s not a question of toughness — it’s manipulating people’s angst and their fears. That’s not strength. That’s weakness”, Jeb Bush told CNBC Friday.
