Donald Trump Tells Don Lemon That A ‘Certain Segment’ Of Muslims Are A ‘Problem’


CNN’s Don Lemon asked Donald Trump about the Muslim comment made by the unidentified man at his New Hampshire rally.

Don Lemon: “You’re heading back to New Hampshire, right?”

Donald Trump: “Correct.”

Don Lemon: “For the first time, for a town hall since that, the guy at the town hall said, ‘The president is a Muslim. That we have problems with the Muslims in this country. We have to get them out.’”

Donald Trump: “He said, ‘Muslims are a problem,’ that was part of what he said. Well, I mean, can you make the case that it’s been tough? And, by the way, most Muslims, I know many, are great people, just so you put it on the record.”

Lemon asked Trump directly if he thinks Muslims are a problem.

Don Lemon: “Do you think Muslims are a problem?”

Donald Trump: “Well, I think a certain segment are certainly a problem. Unless you want to be so politically correct, would you want me to say? ‘Oh, absolutely not!’ I mean, you have ISIS. You have the migration. You have all of this stuff. You have, you know, a lot of people think you can end up with World War III over the Middle East. I’ve heard that for 25 years. There’s something going on when you see beheadings. I mean beheadings, we haven’t seen that since medieval times.”

Mr. Trump said that his Muslim friends also believe that the radical Islamists pose a threat.

Donald Trump: “I have great friendships with many people who are Muslims, living in this building. OK? Living here. But I have great friendships, they’re phenomenal people. And most of them are like that, but you certainly have…”

Don Lemon: “Have they asked you about your comments? What do you say to them? Are they asking?”

Donald Trump: “By the way, they think we have a bigger problem than we do. OK? They think we have a bigger problem. Because there’s a radical Islamic group of people that is brutal. And unless our country gets tough and smart, and unless we have the right leadership done; we’re in big trouble.”

As President, Huckabee Will Protect All Human Life Including The Unborn


Former Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee spoke at the Values Voter Summit in Washington DC:

Now I know one of the biggest battles going on in this city right now, and it’s a worthy battle, and an important one, defund Planned Parenthood.

And it’s why I have said, that as President of the United States, I will raise this question: Is the unborn child a person or is it just a blob of tissue? And I believe with all my heart the answer to that question we all know, it is a person.

Since it is a human being, we already have the Constitutional protection, it’s called the 5th Amendment that says that there will be due process before you deprive a person of life or liberty. As president, we will invoke the 5th and 14th Amendment. We will protect human life.

Governor Huckabee said that he will preserve the three equal branches of government.

I’ve read the Constitution. Something, I think, a lot of Ivy League lawyers never did. And here’s this much I know: The courts cannot make a law. And I want you to know and I serve notice today, that as President of the United States, I will keep the oath and will not surrender the entire Executive Branch over to the Judicial or the Legislative because I believe there are three branches of government, equal, and therefore the checks and balances to each other. And Kim Davis and people like her will never, ever go to jail one minute if I’m President of the United States.

Donald Trump Predicts Rand Paul Will Be Next To Exit Race


Donald Trump at the second GOP Debate on CNN:

First of all, Rand Paul shouldn’t even be on this stage. He’s number eleven. He’s got one percent in the polls. And how he got up here, there’s far too many people anyway.
I never attacked him on his look and believe me, there’s plenty of subject matter right there. That I can tell you.

Donald Trump tweeted that Senator Rand Paul will be forced out of the 2016 GOP presidential race:

“Prediction: Rand Paul has been driven out of the race by my statements about him. He will announce soon. One percent!”

“I hope when Rand Paul gets out of the race–he is at 1%–his supporters come over to me. I will do a much better job for them.”

The Kentucky senator told Alisyn Camerota on CNN’s New Day that his campaign is not done:

But I’ll tell you this, I think we’ll be around just as long as Trump or longer. I’m thinking, how did we get the race for the most important office in the free world to sink to such depths? And how can anyone in my party think this clown is fit to be president? But by no mean am I finished. I’m just getting started.

An article in Politico also predicts that Senator Paul’s campaign is coming to an end:

“Rand Paul’s campaign reeks of the same stench of death that surrounded the Perry and Walker efforts before their demise…his fundraising is lagging, his campaign is disorganized…KYGOP is going to pressure him to concentrate on the U.S. Senate race. There is no path to victory for him in the presidential race.”

Senator Rand Paul on CNN:

So we’re just getting started. We’re culling through all the list. We’re identifying our voters, doing all the traditional campaigning. But that doesn’t show up because we’ve decided that this election, it’s all about national polling. National polling has nothing to do with the race, absolutely nothing to do with the race.

Jake Tapper Pushes Ben Carson Too Far On Muslim Comments


Ben Carson: “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper attempted to trap Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson into admitting that he was engaging in unfair discrimination against Muslims because of his views. Ben Carson said:

I would have problems with somebody who embraced all the doctrines associated with Islam. If they are not willing to reject Sharia and all the portions of it that are talked about in the Quran — if they are not willing to reject that, and subject that to American values and the Constitution, then of course, I would.

Tapper continued to press Dr. Carson:

Jake Tapper: “Because you seem to be singling out Muslims as individuals who automatically, as a knee-jerk, would put their religion ahead of the country and I think that offended a lot of people, including a lot of patriotic Muslims.”

Ben Carson: “I think the statement stands. Is it possible that maybe the media thinks that it’s the bigger deal than the American people do? Because American people, the majority of them, agree with, and they understand exactly what I’m saying.”

Dr. Carson explained that a person who embraces Sharia law would necessarily want to establish a “theocracy” in the United States.

And you cannot, unless you specifically deny that portion of Islam, be a Muslim in good standing. Now if that is the case, if you are not willing to reject that, then how in the world can you possibly be the President of the United States.

Tapper accused Carson of assuming that Muslim Americans put their beliefs ahead of the country.

Jake Tapper: “You’re an African-American. You know what it’s like for people to make false assumptions about you. And you seem to be doing the same thing with Muslims.” 

Ben Carson: “In which way am I making a false assumption about them?”

Jake Tapper: “You’re assuming that Muslim-Americans put their religion ahead of the country.”

Ben Carson: “I’m assuming that if you accept all the tenets of Islam, that you would have a very difficult time abiding under the Constitution of the United States.”

Armstrong Williams (off-camera): “This interview is over.”

Jake Tapper: “OK.”

Armstrong Williams: “Thank you.”

Jake Tapper: “Thank you, Dr. Carson. I appreciate it.”

Ben Carson: “All right.”

Trump Responds To Lowry’s Vulgar Comments


Rich Lowry: “Let’s be honest. Carly cut his balls off with the precision of a surgeon and he knows, he knows it.”

Megyn Kelly: “What did you just say? You can’t say that.”

Trump phoned into CNN to criticize Rich Lowry’s comments.

They have pundits on the show, I mean one of them made a total fool of himself last night. He totally lost it. I mean he was, it looked like he was having a nervous breakdown on television. But he lost it. It was wonderful watching this guy lose it because, you know, he’s a bad guy.

During a phone interview on MSNBC, Trump disagreed with Joe Scarborough’s suggestion that Lowry is a respected author of an influential magazine.

Joe Scarborough: “And you’re at war with Rich Lowry who is the editor of National Review, which is really sort of the gold-standard of conservative magazines.”

Donald Trump: “I don’t think anybody reads it, Joe. I think it has no power whatsoever, I’ll be honest. I think it has no power whatsoever. And he’s not a respected guy.”

Trump said he has the ability to fight back through social media.

You know I got this thing called Twitter and Facebook which is amazing actually. It’s like owning the New York Times without the losses.

Trump tweeted out:

“Incompetent Rich Lowry lost it tonight on Fox News. He should not be allowed on TV and the FCC should fine him!”

“Fox News owes me an apology for allowing clueless pundit Rich Lowry to use such foul language on TV. Unheard of!”

Trump told CNN that he has repeatedly objected to network coverage that does not cite his leadership in the polls.

I don’t mind being criticized. And I don’t mind it at all…If I do something wrong, Alisyn, I have very thick skin. I don’t mind being criticized. I’ll never, ever complain. I do things wrong, and when I do, I don’t mind, they can come at me 15 different ways. But when I’m right, or when I don’t deserve something, I think it’s very, very unfair to speak incorrectly. So I will correct people. I believe in that.
