Donald Trump once again jumped feet first into scalding hot water of politics and the press. This time he did it with his new plan for all Muslims seeking to enter the United States.
On Monday, Trump released a statement calling for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”
According to Fox news, if Trump were president, his ban would not only include all Muslim refugees, but also all Muslim tourists, and all those who wish to immigrate to this country.
“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life,” Trump said in his statement.
Trump specified that his Muslim ban would stand “until our country’s representatives can figure our what is going on.”
While the sentiment that America needs to exercise caution in whom she admits into the country may have been born from good intent and honest concern, the call for a ban and blanket profiling on that scale might begin to spell the end for Donald Trump’s campaign.
The majority of the other Republican candidates joined together in blasting Trump’s plan and rhetoric.
What do you think? Do you agree with Trump? Or has he gone too far?
