Trump In Trouble Over Supporter's Comments About Muslims And Obama

When President Obama was first elected, there erupted a "birther" movement that claimed Obama wasn't born in America. One of the leaders of that movement was Donald Trump. In fact, Trump was so forceful with his accusations that Obama felt the need to produce a copy of his birth certificate in 2011. Now that Donald Trump is the front-runner among Republican presidential candidates, vying for the nomination, echoes of the birther movement can still be heard. On Thursday, Trump hosted a Town Hall meeting in Rochester, New Hampshire. The first man he called to submit a question asked "We have a problem in this country. It's called Muslims. We know our current president is one. You know he's not even an American."

To that, Trump said "We need the question," as laughs came from the crowd. The man went on to ask "We have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That's my question. When can we get rid of it?" This isn't the first time Trump has heard of this issue so he responded "We're going to be looking at a lot of different things. And you know, a lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We're going to be looking at that and plenty of other things." In 2008, when Sen. John McCain was running for president, he took the microphone away from a woman who said she didn't trust Obama because he was an "Arab." Trump's questions about the president's country of birth helped build his support from some conservative voters.
