Donald Trump Takes Offense Over Pam Geller's Draw The Prophet Contest

On "Fox & Friends" Monday morning, co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Donald Trump for his opinion on the shooting outside Pam Geller's "Draw the Prophet" contest and whether he still believed “in freedom of speech, regardless of what they’re talking about." Trump responded that it's "very terrible" but praised the Garland, Texas police for acting "very strongly." In contrast, he said it was the "weak action" of the Baltimore police that destroyed "over 200 businesses in a single night." He also said “I watched Pam [Geller on Fox News] earlier, and it really looks like she’s just taunting everybody. What is she doing drawing Muhammad? I mean it’s disgusting. Isn’t there something else they could be doing? Drawing Muhammad?” Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck then shared that they asked Geller if she could have organized something else, and Geller told her “No, there wasn’t another way, because you have to fight back against this war against the freedom of speech.” To that, Trump replied “They can’t do something else? They have to be in the middle of Texas doing something on Muhammad and insulting everybody?”
