Donald Trump Calls For ‘Complete Shutdown’ Of Muslims Entering U.S.
Seriously?

12/07/2015 04:39 pm ET

WASHINGTON — Republican presidential hopeful and real estate mogul Donald Trump is calling for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” following deadly terror attacks involving Islamic extremists in California and France. …

Corey Lewandowski, Trump‘s campaign manager, told The Associated Press that the ban would apply to “everybody,” including Muslims seeking tourist visas. …

Trump‘s call to bar Muslim immigration into the U.S. is just the latest in a series of anti-Islamic statements. He previously suggested shuttering certain mosques in the U.S. and claimed he saw footage of American Muslims cheering after the 9/11 attacks — footage that no television network has been able to dig up.

There is some evidence that such anti-Muslim rhetoric has support among GOP primary voters. According to Public Policy Polling, which has regularly polled voters on their attitudes toward Muslims, a significant portion of GOP primary voters in North Carolina believe Islam should be outright illegal in the United States. …

“But just as it is the responsibility of Muslims around the world to root out misguided ideas that lead to radicalization, it is the responsibility of all Americans — of every faith — to reject discrimination,” Obama said. “It is our responsibility to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country. It’s our responsibility to reject proposals that Muslim-Americans should somehow be treated differently.”

ARIANNA HUFFINGTON: A NOTE ON TRUMP “But as today’s vicious pronouncement makes abundantly clear, it’s also morphed into something else: an ugly and dangerous force in American politics. So we will no longer be covering his campaign in Entertainment. But that’s not to say we’ll be treating it as if it were a normal campaign.” [Arianna Huffington, HuffPost]

Donald Trump wants to ban the internet, will ask Bill Gates to ‘close it up’. Speaking as he called for a ‘complete shutdown’ on Muslims entering the US, Mr Trump dismissed claims that ‘closing up the internet’ would be a freedom of speech issue: here.

Still, at least one major Muslim-owned corporate giant is standing by its business with Mr Trump in the wake of Trump’s comments. Dubai-headquartered Damac Properties, which bills itself as the “largest private developer of luxury real estate in the Middle East,” penned an agreement with Mr Trump in May 2013 to operate the sprawling 7,205-yard Trump International Golf Club in Dubai. While apparently distancing the company from Trump’s anti-Muslim sentiments, a spokesman told The Independent that Mr Trump’s politics would not affect their partnership: here.
