Trump Demands A “Total And Complete Shutdown” Of America's Borders To Muslims
Donald Trump has come under fire tonight from a few fellow politicians for his statements on Muslims
Trump further stated, "Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won't convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.

Trump confirmed he would ban all Muslims from America, including immigrants, those seeking visas for educational purposes and tourists. The Guardian newspaper also revealed Trump wants a database containing the names of all Muslims currently in America.

“Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won’t convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women,” Trump’s “policy statement” said. The former reality TV star added: “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.”
Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Trump’s proposed ban would apply to “everybody”, including Muslims seeking immigration visas as well as tourists seeking to enter the country. Another Trump staffer confirmed that the ban would also apply to American Muslims who were currently overseas - presumably including members of the military and diplomatic service...
