Billionaire Donald trump, who put forward his candidacy for the US presidency from the Republican party, on Monday, 7th December, made an unprecedented move of banning the entry into the United States for all Muslims – «as long while those who represent the country, do not understand what happens» after the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino, reports The New York Times.
This call came during a speech at trump national day (anniversary of the attack on pearl Harbor) in South Carolina, on Board of a warship Yorktown.
Trump cited the data of sociological surveys, according to which a significant portion of the Muslim population of the USA suffers from a hatred of Americans, and about a quarter of respondents agree that violence against Americans is «part of a global Jihad», and half of respondents believe that the Muslims of America should have the right to live under Sharia law.
«Until then while we will not be able to identify and understand the problem and as long as there is the threat that it poses, our country cannot be the victim of a monstrous attack on people who believe in Jihad and are not guided by common sense or respect for human life,» said trump, pojasnili that strengthening his position caused loss of life in California.
Thus, trump has opposed almost all influential U.S. politicians, including President Barack Obama, who after the tragic events in San Bernardino said that this attack should not sow sectarian strife in the country.
We will remind that on December 2, in a shooting in San Bernardino (California) were killed 14 persons, more than 20 were injured. The attack was made by three extremists, two of them – 27-year-old Malik Tashfin and 28-year-old Syed Rizwan Farooq – were killed in a shootout with police, wanted the third killer continues. It is established that we are talking about a carefully planned attack was perpetrated by radical Islamists. Responsibility for the attack claimed by the Islamic state.
A few weeks ago, trump said: if he becomes President of the United States, we will need to create a database to track all of these Muslims of America. Then this statement has caused sharply negative reaction of many public organizations and politicians. «The offer Donald trump’s deep concern and refers to those black days in American history when certain groups were designated scapegoats. Such projects not only violate civil law, but also beat its target, as destroying the balance between freedom and measures necessary for its protection. Measures that trump proposes to introduce against Muslims is a nightmare, so familiar to the Jews,» – said in comments the anti-defamation League about this initiative trump.
But polls show that on the wave of aggressive rhetoric, the popularity of Donald trump continues to grow. The last poll CNN/ORC showed that in Iowa (where in February will be voting on the selection of the presidential candidate from the Republican party) today trump would receive the support of 33% of voters-Republicans, Senator from Texas Ted Cruz in the state gaining 20 percent of the votes, neurosurgeon Ben Carson to 16%, Senator from Florida, Marco Rubio at 11%, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush – 4%.
