TRUMP: Stop all Muslim immigration
"Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on," his campaign statement said.Trump's campaign pointed to a poll from Center for Security Policy, a think tank founded by Frank Gaffney, a fierce critic of Islam. That survey claims a "significant" minority of American Muslims support radical views.
"Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life," he continued. "If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again."Trump is no stranger to campaign-trail controversies related to Islam, including his apparent openness to a database of American Muslims and his disputed claim that thousands of Muslims in New Jersey cheered as the World Trade Center buildings collapsed in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
But Trump's campaign has thrived off of the controversies and the Republican front-runner frequently denounces political correctness.His latest statement came after last week's mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, which left 14 people dead. The FBI said the two shooters had "self-radicalized," and one of them allegedly pledged allegediance to the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS.Last Thursday, Trump said the shooting "looks like another Islamic disaster."
