Trump Threatens to Shut Down Mosques

In the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris, Donald Trump suggested Monday that as president he might try to close mosques, Breitbart News reported.

During an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” reporter Chris Jansing asked the Republican candidate: “Is there something that you would do here in the homeland that you think is not being done now to protect United States citizens?”

Trump responded: “Well, you’re going to have to watch and study the mosques because a lot of talk is going on at the mosques. And from what I heard in the old days, meaning a while ago, we had great surveillance going on in and around mosques in New York City, and I understand our mayor totally cut that out.”

Program host Joe Scarborough pointed out that the French government has announced tentative plans to shut down mosques in that country. He asked Trump, “Is this something you would consider doing as president?”

The billionaire businessman replied that he “would hate to do it but it’s something that you’re going to have to strongly consider because some of the ideas and some of the hatred, the absolute hatred, is coming from these areas.”

Regarding the ISIS threat, Trump declared: “This is something that has to be stopped and we have to be very strong; we have to be vigilant.”
