Donald Trump has been getting a lot of attention for his possible run for the Presidency and positive results in polling. The press likes to emphasize his curiosity about Obama’s birth certificate (a tail-chaser, IMHO), but the public’s appreciation for the hotel magnate probably has more to do with his straight-talk style of expressing his views.
Trump recently remarked that there is a problem with Islam — something the country has largely recognized but which most political leaders ignore out of fear.
But Trump typically dives right in, as he did during a recent interview with CBN:
“Bill O’Reilly asked me, is there a Muslim problem? And I said absolutely, yes,” he said. “In fact I went a step further. I said I didn’t see Swedish people knocking down the World Trade Center.”
“I’m certainly not an expert to put it mildly, but there’s something there that teaches some very negative vibe” Trump said about the Koran.
“There’s a lot of hatred there that’s some place,” he continued. “Now I don’t know if that’s from the Koran, I don’t know if that’s from some place else. But there’s tremendous hatred out there that I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Now if he would only recommend that America end Muslim immigration for national security reasons. . .
