Trump Cites ‘Hatred’ in U.S. Muslim Community

Donald Trump continued to express his contempt for American Muslims on Monday, Business Insider reported.

“There’s a level of hatred within a certain community, in this case the Muslim community. There’s a level of hatred that people don’t want to talk about,” the Republican presidential front-runner declared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

When one of the show’s hosts asked whether Islam is an “inherently peaceful religion” or “inherently violent,” Trump responded: “There’s something going on. There’s something definitely going on. I don’t know that that question could be answered. It could be answered two ways. It could be answered both ways. But there’s something going on there.”

He continued: “There’s a lot of hatred coming out of at least a big part of it. You see the hatred. I mean, we see it every day. You see it whether it’s in Paris, whether it’s the World Trade Center. ... There’s something nasty coming out of there. And you could answer it any way you want. But at least we have to know the problem.”

Business Insider noted that the billionaire businessman frequently lashes out at Muslims. He proposed a national database to register and track everyone of that faith in the country, called on authorities to conduct surveillance at mosques, and threatened to close down some of the houses of worship if he becomes president.
