Trump Calls for ‘Total and Complete Shutdown of Muslims Entering the United States’

Trump: No More Muslims Allowed in U.S.

PicMonkey Collage - TrumpDonald Trump‘s campaign has released a statement announcing that he wants a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

The statement cites how there’s “great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population” and how a number of Muslims believe in Sharia law and think that any American Muslims ‘should have the choice of being governed” by it.

Trump himself said “the hatred is beyond comprehension” and wants to look into why anti-Muslim sentiment is so high, but said, “Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it posts, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad, and have no sense of religion or respect for human life.”

Trump has previously proposed surveillance of mosques and at one point didn’t shut down the idea of registering all Muslims (before claiming he didn’t entertain the notion).

He’s also claimed, without the evidence to back it up, that “thousands” of Muslims in New Jersey cheered on 9/11.

And in case there’s any confusion about who this applies to, Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said it applies to “everyone,” and that includes tourists.
