Trump is responsible for a rise in Islamophobia
It's not only "Islamophobia." Trump is a racial bigot, liar, misogynist, scammer, and all around crook who didn't pay contractors that he engaged.
Trump also filed over 3,500 law suits. His MO is to sue everybody.
He's not qualified.
"*Ban all Muslims from entering the US."
* My translation.
When a US presidential candidate gives credence to prejudice against Muslims it is different than someone with less influence espousing prejudicial views.
What would be the point to say suspected terrorist Muslims since presumably they would be on the terror watch list and couldn't come into the US anyway? He said Muslims until we can figure this thing out, or words similar.
