Do you agree with Donald Trump's views? Will you want such a prejudiced bigot for President? Just because the few terrorists that had killed innocent people in Paris and in California were Muslims, one cannot generalize that all Muslims are terrorists. I am a Muslim and I DO NOT condone what happened in Paris and in California. My religion teaches us to be peaceful people. Islam doesn't promote violence. I do not consider these terrorists to be Muslims. They don't belong in Heaven but will be condemned to Hell.

Donald Duck and Donald Trump have something in common. They both lack in good people skills.

I guess that is how he got to the top; by trampling people at the bottom.

@UmiNoor Of course I don't know him personally but I think it is his way. He speaks his mind and never thinks how his words might might hurt people. Security is a big issue to be talked about seriously and you are right it is because of evil men shame is brought onto Islam. It is a difficult road the road of peace. We do need sincere prayers to travel on it. God may there be peace and security.

@Bluedoll He should know that his words have repercussions now that he's a politician. He can't just say anything he wants. Doesn't he have an image consultant or a PA who can advise him?

@UmiNoor Unless we're talking about the scary-as-heck clowns in horror movies. Which is pretty much the type of clown Trump is.

@UmiNoor I've had my fill of Donald Trump. I've been asking myself for months why anyone is listening to him.

I dislike Trump for many reasons. I think this call for ban on Muslim immigration (which he could not enforce, even if he were president) is an appeal to the worst in people. I find it beneath contempt, as a human being, as an American citizen and as child of an immigrant to the US.

Isn't it against the Constitution to target one religion for persecution? I thought in America there's freedom to practice any religion. If there's a ban against Muslims, what will happen to the Muslims that are already living in the country? Will they be deported even though they are born in America?

My point was that the presidency lacks the power to enact such a law. Immigration is within the purview of Congress. He didn't mention deporting Muslims already here, born here or no. That's beyond even his idiocy. In short, he's blowing hot air. Another silly thing he said is that if he's president is that people will say "Merry Christmas" to one another as opposed to "Happy holidays." The president has no power to enact such a law, nor enforce it. Again, more hot air. The call to ban Muslim immigration is just as silly, just as unenforceable, but more hateful. This is the full text of the First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. IMHO, the best response to this idiot is to let him know he's full of, um, air.

@msiduri I guess his aim is probably to make people talk about him and think about him all the time. Who knows come election time, people will vote for him just because his name is always in the news and the most familiar names among the names on the ballot paper.

Trump likes to talk. In this one case he has upset a lot of people, but in another sense infamy can be great publicity. You have to remember that he can say anything he wants, but even if he was president he couldn't just ban all people that are muslim on his say so. It would have to pass through several branches of government first and it would be shot down. I actually do like Trump because of one very important aspect: he's a business man. The economy needs tweaking, and a business man that understands might do more than a whimsical politician. However, I have never thought that any candidate deserves the job. It's not a popularity contest; it's who can do the best at the job before them.

He may be an astute businessman but running a country isn't the same as running a company. Perhaps he should be in a committee but not become the President of the United States. It's scary to think that such a racist person run the most powerful country in the world. I fear he might start a world war.

@OneOfMany In fact, when I see the youths of today and that they may be running the country in the future, I fear for our future. But then, who's not to say that they may become responsible adults when they grow up? Trump may also "grow up" once he's in a position that requires him to act responsibly.

A peition is currently under way in the United Kingdom calling for a ban on Donald Trump entering the country! To date it has 100,000 signatures!

I gather that the petition now has more than 300,000 signatures, which means that it should get debated in Parliament.

@indexer Can it really happen? Can a country just ban one person from entering the country? Trump certainly won't be welcome in many countries now. His statement was too racist.

@indexer Donald Trump should be banned from coming to the UK it's a disgrace what he said, absolutely he should know that this would cause great problems and just spread hatred amongst people.I am proud to say I did sign the petition

That was what I told my children. These terrorists are giving Islam a bad name. They're just a bunch of violent people. They're not true Muslims. I wish they don't use Islam as an excuse to become bullies. If they want to invade other countries, don't use Islam as an excuse.

@UmiNoor Terrorists have no religion they just spread hatred around the world. These people are not Muslims at all.using Islam as An excuse is the only way they can validate going into a country unfortunately

@parveen86 That is true. I don't consider these terrorists Muslims at all. They'll be condemned in Hell for killing so many innocents.

Trump was basically saying, the u.s. shouldnt let any more muslims in to the country until the screening process is overhauled and more efficient. and if temporarily banning them, muslims, from entering is one way, then he'd be willing to do it.

But why only Muslims? That is like saying only Muslims could be terrorists. His statement is too racist and goes against all that America stands for.

@UmiNoor - because that is what the ethnicity of the vast number of terrorist is. i dont see it as racist, i see it as a harsh reality. sure a small sample are american, french, and what not, but a majority are muslim.

I think he is just trying to create sensation. There is no way to stop anyone from entering the country based on religious beliefs. If you put your religion as freethinker, though you are a Muslim, how are the immigration going to verify? It is not as if the religion appears in all passports.

That is true. I also think that he's just playing with people's fear of terrorism. What he's doing is not solving the problem. He's only succeeded in creating hatred. He's spreading hatred.

True. Rich Arab Muslims will probably still be welcome to the United States.

Donald Trump feeds into the fears of his followers, but he doesn't represent all Americans. Not by a long shot!
