Chris Wallace Grills Trump: Do You Honestly Think Every Single Muslim Is a Potential Threat?

wallace trumpChris Wallace confronted Donald Trump on his proposed Muslim entry ban on Fox News Sunday and asked him if he honestly thinks every single foreign Muslim is a threat.

He pointed out that’s over a billion people, asking, “Are you saying that all of them are potential security threats?”

Trump immediately invoked 9/11 and San Bernardino, talking vaguely about “big problems” and “tremendous hatred” in the Muslim world against the United States. He said, “Where it comes from, I don’t know.”

Wallace again pressed him and said it’s different to ban people from certain nations, but religion is different, and he even brought up the charge that Trump is a “demagogue.”

Trump said he isn’t, insisting that he’s “not creating the fear, people are living in fear.” He even scolded Wallace for being too politically correct and said his father wouldn’t have been like that.
