Trump Says Some Muslims Present A Severe Problem

Donald Trump has found himself in some hot water for not disagreeing with a supporter who said at a Thursday rally that “we have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims” and that President Obama is a Muslim. During the Sunday news shows, Trump held phone interviews where he tried to clarify his statements by saying “You can be politically correct if you want, but are you trying to say we don’t have a problem. Most Muslims, like most everything, I mean, these are fabulous people. But we certainly do have a problem, I mean, you have a problem throughout the world.”

When he shared that with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union," he was asked to explain the "problem." Trump responded, “it wasn’t people from Sweden that blew up the World Trade Center.” In addition, Trump spoke to ABC's "This Week," saying “They say there is a problem with certain militants that obviously you report on every night on your newscasts. But there is a problem with militancy, and it is something that is going to have to be solved.”

On NBC’s “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd, Trump said, “You know, we can be politically correct, and we can say there is no problem whatsoever. But the fact is, there is a problem with some. And it's a very severe problem. And it's a problem that's taking place all over the world.” After strong condemnations of his actions at the Thursday rally, Trump said on Saturday that he's not "morally obligated" to defend Obama.
