Donald Trump Says He’d ‘Absolutely’ Require Muslims to Register.

Donald Trump has confirmed his plan to force Muslims in the United States to register on a database – and refused to respond to comparisons between his policy and the treatment of Jewish people in Nazi Germany.A former US marine has won plaudits on Twitter after he shut down Donald Trump over his controversial comments about introducing a ‘Muslim database’. @muslimmarine began trending worldwide after Tayyib M.

Donald Trump doesn’t understand why so few companies provide affordable, in-house child care for their employees like he does at some of his companies. “It’s not expensive for a company to do it,” Trump said during a town hall at a community college in this small town on Thursday afternoon. “You need one person or two people, and you need some blocks and you need some swings and some toys. The frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination was confronted about the scheme – which would see Muslims given a form of identification that notes their religion – by a reporter from NBC News while signing autographs after a rally in Iowa. Rashid posted a photo of his US Marine Corps ID card with the caption: “Hey @realDonaldTrump, I’m an American Muslim and I already carry a special ID badge. He was then asked four times by another reporter how his plan for a Muslim database would be different from Nazi Germany’s laws that required Jews to register. The latest comments come less than a week after the deadly attacks on a concert hall, sports stadium and restaurants in Paris that have elevated fears of attacks in in the U.S. and prompted calls for new restrictions on Syrian refugees fleeing their war-torn country.

The Republican candidate wrote on his Twitter account on Thursday: “Eight Syrians were just caught on the southern border trying to get into the US. I do it all over, and I get great people because of it… It’s something that can be done, I think, very easily by a company.” Trump’s comments came after a woman asked him what he would do as president to provide workers, especially working mothers, with more access to affordable child care.

He said earlier this week that the country was “going to have no choice” but to close certain mosques because “really bad things are happening, and they’re happening fast.” The first reference to the database idea came in an interview with Yahoo News published earlier Thursday in which the billionaire real estate mogul did not reject the idea of requiring Muslims to register in a database or giving them special identification cards noting their religion. The woman’s question was lengthy and jam-packed with statistics, prompting Trump to quiz her on why she was asking the question. “It’s funny because it’s not something you hear as much about as you would think,” Trump said, saying he hears many more questions about student loan debt and job creation. “Do you work with your husband? Asked by reporters Thursday night to explain his Yahoo comments, Trump suggested his response had been misconstrued. “I never responded to that question,” he said. WE NEED A BIG & BEAUTIFUL WALL.” Mr Trump is not the only Republican candidate to have made provocative remarks about Syrian refugees in the wake of the Paris attacks. The Council on American-Islamic Relations issued a statement Thursday condemning Trump for what the group described as “Islamophobic and unconstitutional” comments targeting American Muslims and Syrian refugees.

About 350 people were in the audience and, afterwards, most of those people moved to another room for a rally with Trump, where he again answered questions. This was one of the smallest crowds Trump has spoken before in recent weeks, having addressed more than 10,000 people the night before in Massachusetts. John Kasich, announced plans to launch a $2.5 million ad campaign targeting Trump. “There’s a growing consensus that someone has to do something to stop Donald Trump,” said Matt David, a spokesman for the group, who said the campaign would include television, radio, mail and digital ads in New Hampshire. Trump responded to the news, which was first reported by Politico, by unloading a dozen rapid-fire tweets mocking Kasich’s polling and debate performances and threatened to “sue him just for fun!” if the ads aren’t truthful. Trump said he first learned about the small town of Newton, located about 35 miles east of Des Moines, from a 60 Minutes segment several years ago that examined the fallout of the local Maytag factory shutting down.

At the Thursday evening rally, two of those guys joined Trump on the stage and recounted how the billionaire had helped them when no elected official would. He slammed rival Ben Carson for his lack of foreign policy experience and said the retired doctor’s campaign is in a “free fall.” He criticized Sen.
