Donald Trump went on State of the Union Sunday with Jake Tapper. During the discussion Tapper questioned him on the Muslim problem.
Trump reminded Tapper, “It wasn’t people from Sweden who blew up the World Trade Center, Jake.”
The Examiner reported:
After refusing to reprimand a supporter who talked about the “problem” with Muslims in the United States at a town hall this week, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump doubled down Sunday, saying there is a “very severe problem” with some Muslims.
“It wasn’t people from Sweden who blew up the World Trade Center,” Trump told Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“I get that — but to say we have a problem and it’s called Muslims because there are some extremist Muslims, is tarring all Muslims,” said Tapper.
“Well I don’t agree with that at all, but you have extremist Muslims that are in a class by themselves,” said Trump, who leads the Washington Examiner’s presidential power rankings. “It is a problem in this country and it’s a problem throughout the world. I mean all you have to do is look at Europe.”
