Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Wednesday that “Islam hates us” and that the United States can’t allow people into the country who have such hatred for the U.S. and people who are not Muslim.
Asked if he thinks Islam is at war with the West, Mr. Trump said: “I think Islam hates us.”
“There’s something there — there’s a tremendous hatred there,” he told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “There’s a tremendous hatred. We have to get to the bottom of it. There is an unbelievable hatred of us.”
Asked whether he thinks the hatred is “in Islam itself,” Mr. Trump said: “You’re going to have to figure that out, OK? You’ll get another Pulitzer.”
“But there is a tremendous hatred, and we have to be very vigilant, we have to be very careful, and we can’t allow people coming into this country who have this hatred of the United States, and of people that are not Muslim,” he said.
