President Donald Trump has a long history of making disparaging comments about Muslims and Muslims in general.
In March 2017, he said of an American Muslim, “They want to see us dead.”
And in June, Trump tweeted: “The biggest problem facing America today is not Islamic terrorism, the biggest problem is radical Islamic terrorism.”
The next day, he blamed the San Bernardino shootings on “radical Islamic terrorism,” and added, “The Islamic terrorist who murdered 14 innocent Americans in Orlando is a radical Islamic terrorist.
And he was radicalized in this country by a radical Muslim.”
As The Washington Post reported on Thursday, Trump has continued to make similar comments.
Trump has also said Muslims who practice the religion of Islam should be “killed” or “permanently” deported, a claim that was debunked by the FBI.
Trump’s administration has continued this pattern.
In the wake of the Orlando shootings, Trump promised to build a wall along the southern border with Mexico, which he has since promised will be built “in a very short period of time.”
He also said, “We will be stopping the flow of Muslims into this country.
We will be protecting the country.”
Trump also recently called on the Department of Homeland Security to “exterminate all Muslims in the country” and claimed that President Barack Obama “does not want us to have a Muslim president.”
On Twitter, Trump also claimed that Muslims “want to kill Americans,” and that the country is being “raped” by “terrorists.”
“We have to stop this.
It’s going to be done,” Trump said at a rally in Pennsylvania.
“And we’re going to have to get rid of this whole thing.
They want to kill us.
They are rapists.”
