Donald Trump Says He Would Be Open to Closing U.S. Mosques to Fight ISIS

Donald J. Trump angered Hispanics when he referred to immigrants as criminals and rapists during the kickoff of his campaign in June. This week, he has put American Muslims on edge by suggesting that he would be open to shutting down mosques as president.

Asked on Fox Business Network if the United States should take action to close certain mosques as part of the fight against the Islamic State, as has happened in Britain, Mr. Trump said, “I would do that, absolutely.”

Mr. Trump then said that he was not sure about the legality of closing mosques, but that it was certainly something that should be looked at.

“It depends if the mosque is, you know, loaded for bear,” he said.

    The vibe is strong in this one. That’s the “Donald T is the new Arnie S.” vibe.

    • He says all the right things, well mostly.

      • The Butterfly

  • Dana Garcia

    Trump better get his Secret Service protection soon. He is making all the right enemies.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Trudeau would never dream of doing this.

    • Clausewitz

      Trudeau wants to make Islam the state religion since he’s now a Muz after taking the Shahada. They are his voter base.

    • Trudeau is a security risk.

        True – but Hillary’s still the master. Go USA!

  • eMan14

    Oh to be a fly on the wall when President Trump sits down to chat with Prime Minister Trulander.

  • Xavier

    The problem with closing mosques is it drive Islamists underground. If you want to control domestic jihad you have to remove the root cause.
