US Politics: GOP about IslamicTerrorism - Trump says he would 'absolutely' implement Muslim database if elected president

US Politics: GOP about IslamicTerrorism -

Trump says he would 'absolutely' implement Muslim database if elected president.

Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump has voiced support for
creating a mandatory database to track Muslims in the United States — the latest
in an escalating series of responses from the real estate mogul following the
deadly attacks in Paris.


"I would certainly implement that. Absolutely," Trump told an NBC News
reporter between campaign events Thursday in Newton, Iowa, according to video
posted on MSNBC.com.


He said Muslims would be signed up at "different places," adding, "It's all
about management."


Asked whether registering would be mandatory, Trump responded, "They have to
be."


Trump, along with retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, has stunned the political
world with his rise to the top of some polls in the crowded Republican
nomination race. With the first primary votes less than three months away, the
two outsider candidates continue to overshadow established politicians who were
expected to vie for front-runner status.


Trump's latest comments come less than a week after the deadly attacks on a
concert hall, sports stadium and restaurants in Paris that have elevated fears
of attacks in in the U.S. and prompted calls for new restrictions on Syrian
refugees fleeing their war-torn country.


While some of his Republican rivals have been chastised by President Barack
Obama for suggesting that Christian Syrian refugees be given preference over
Muslims, Trump has gone further in his rhetoric, advocating new restrictions on
civil liberties and enhanced surveillance activities, including inside mosques.


He said earlier this week that the country was "going to have no choice" but
to close certain mosques because "really bad things are happening, and they're
happening fast."


The first reference to the database idea came in an interview with Yahoo News
published earlier Thursday in which the billionaire real estate mogul did not
reject the idea of requiring Muslims to register in a database or giving them
special identification cards noting their religion.


"We're going to have to look at a lot of things very closely," Trump told
Yahoo News.


He also suggested he would consider warrantless searches, according to Yahoo,
saying, "We're going to have to do things that we never did before."


Asked by reporters Thursday night to explain his Yahoo comments, Trump
suggested his response had been misconstrued. "I never responded to that
question," he said.


The Council on American-Islamic Relations issued a statement Thursday
condemning Trump for what the group described as "Islamophobic and
unconstitutional" comments targeting American Muslims and Syrian refugees.


They also criticized Carson, who on Thursday compared blocking potential
terrorists posing as Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. to handling a rabid
dog.


"If there's a rabid dog running around in your neighbourhood, you're probably
not going to assume something good about that dog," Carson told reporters at a
campaign stops in Alabama. "It doesn't mean you hate all dogs, but you're
putting your intellect into motion."


"By mainstreaming Islamophobic and unconstitutional policies, Donald Trump
and Ben Carson are contributing to an already toxic environment that may be
difficult to correct once their political ambitions have been satisfied," CAIR's
Robert McCaw said in a statement.


Also Thursday, New Day for America, a group supporting the presidential bid
of Ohio Gov. John Kasich, announced plans to launch a $2.5 million ad campaign
targeting Trump.


"There's a growing consensus that someone has to do something to stop Donald
Trump," said Matt David, a spokesman for the group, who said the campaign would
include television, radio, mail and digital ads in New Hampshire.


Trump responded to the news, which was first reported by Politico, by
unloading a dozen rapid-fire tweets mocking Kasich's polling and debate
performances and threatened to "sue him just for fun!" if the ads aren't
truthful.


Kasich responded with his own flurry of tweets aimed at Trump.
