(Conservative Post ) Donald Trump is proving he will take extreme measures to protect America against Islamic terrorists.
The Republican presidential candidate said he would be open to shutting down mosques in the U.S. during an interview with “Morning Joe”.
“I would hate to do it,” Trump said. “But it’s something that you’re going to have to strongly consider.”
“Because some of the ideas and some of the hatred — the absolute hatred — is coming from these areas,” he continued.
“It’s something that many people — it’s not me — it’s something that many people are considering, and many people are going to do,” Trump said.
“The hatred is incredible. It’s embedded. It’s embedded. The hatred is beyond belief. The hatred is greater than anybody understands.”
Trump is in favor of setting up surveillance at mosques to ensure no future terrorist attacks are being planned.
“You’re going to have to watch and study the mosques,” Trump said.
“Because a lot of talk is going on at the mosques. And from what I heard, in the old days — meaning a while ago — we had great surveillance going in and around mosques in New York City,” he added.
“And I understand our mayor totally cut that out.”
