Trump Says He 'Would Certainly Implement' Muslim Database
The insanity continues...
NEWTON, Iowa — Donald Trump "would certainly implement" a database system tracking Muslims in the United States, the Republican front-runner told NBC News on Thursday night.
"I would certainly implement that. Absolutely," Trump said in Newton, Iowa, in between campaign town halls.
"There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases," he added. "We should have a lot of systems."
When asked whether Muslims would be legally obligated to sign into the database, Trump responded, "They have to be — they have to be."
Ibrahim Hooper, national spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, sounded incredulous when he was asked about Trump's comments, telling NBC News: "We're kind of at a loss for words."
"What else can you compare this to except to prewar Nazi Germany?" Hooper asked. "There's no other comparison, and [Trump] seems to think that's perfectly OK."
Rabbi Jack Moline, executive director of the nonprofit Interfaith Alliance, drew the same comparison Thursday night.
"My father was in World War II, and he fought to preserve America against what the Nazis were doing," Moline told NBC News.
"This is exactly why there is an America, to not be like that," he said.
Trump was repeatedly asked to explain how his idea was different. Four times, he responded: "You tell me."
He also ignored a question of whether there would be consequences for Muslims who do not register into the hypothetical database.
Asked where they would be registered, the real estate mogul said Muslims would be signed up at "different places."
"I't's all about management," he said. "Our country has no management."
Trump tied his reasoning for the database to the need to identify who is in the country legally.
"It would stop people from coming in illegally," Trump said. "We have to stop people from coming into our country illegally."
During a town hall that aired just before making those remarks, Trump reiterated his calls not to allow Syrian refugees into the country, saying bringing them "into this country is suicide. I call it the Trojan horse."
Ben Carson, currently second in recent national polling, suggested Thursday morning in Alabama that trying to distinguish terrorists among Syrian refugees coming into the United States would be like having "a rabid dog running around your neighborhood."
"Doesn't mean that you hate all dogs, by any stretch of the imagination," Carson said. "But you're putting your intellect into motion and you're thinking how do I protect my children."
So disgusted with this shlt
What a fukkin clown. Islamophobes, this man is among your best and brightest
Dead set these guys biggest bunch of looser on earth.
This will spread to Christians too
All around the world.. people look at this man and his words.. and wonder how it is even possible that such a disgusting, hate filled, ruthlessly retarded man could be a potential president. Not that Carson is any better.
What the fukk, America. Stop embarrassing yourself. Stop it with this parody of a human.
Yeah this is getting dangerous now
You want to talk about sparking terrorism? Look at Trump

lol at thinking america doesn't surveilence most Muslims though
TBH not really, we've come to expect this from the GOP. A sane candidate would've been more surprising.
Maybe it's because I don't live in the states and there don't have to put up with this retard all the time. Whenever I hear him speak I'm just
GOP are the undisputed retards though. Nobody even comes close.
