CNN Reporter Asks Trump ‘Do You Think Muslims Are A Problem?’ Wait Until You See His Response


CNN host Don Lemon, taking another feeble shot by the mainstream media to catch a GOP candidate with a ‘gotcha’ question on Muslims, got hammered with some solid feedback from Donald Trump.

Lemon wanted to know Trump’s views on Muslims in America, and used the backdrop of the crowd member from a previous rally asking about a Muslim problem.

Trump handled it rather deftly.

“Are they a problem?” Trump asked, repeating the crowd members question.  “You tell me. And I say it often, I don’t see the people who knocked down the World Trade Center, going back to Sweden… By the way, most Muslims, and I know many, are great people.”

Lemon repeated the question – “Do you think Muslims are a problem?”

Trump didn’t waiver, offering this assessment:

“Well, I think certain segments are certainly a problem. Unless you want to be so politically correct, what do you want me to say? “Oh, absolutely not!” I mean, you have ISIS. You have the migration. You have all this stuff. You have, you know, a lot of people think you can end up with World War III in the Middle East. I’ve heard that for 25 years. There’s something going on.”

Watch the exchange below …

This Muslim follower of CNN supported Trump’s take:

Trump was making similar comments to the Muslim question (which demonstrates the media has been asking it for years) back in 2011.

I think people want the truth. I think they’re tired of politicians. They’re tired of politically correct stuff.

I mean I could have said, ‘Oh, absolutely not Bill, there’s no Muslim problem, everything is wonderful, just forget about the World Trade Center.’ But you have to speak the truth. We’re so politically correct that this country is falling apart.

Comment:  Do you think there is a Muslim problem in America?
