This is unacceptable.
Donald Trump just released a statement calling on the United States to completely stop all Muslims from immigrating to the country amid terrorism fears and recent attacks.
Trump, in recent weeks, has called for the closure of mosques while falsely claiming thousands of Muslims in New Jersey cheered when the World Trade Center fell in the September 11, 2001 attacks.
Now, he’s gone a full step further, and it’s awful.
In a release sent Monday afternoon, Trump is calling to completely stop all Muslim immigration to America, arguing:
“Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again.”

What can you even say about open, blatant racism that leads the Republican Party at the polls?
