NATION OF ISLAM LEADER LOUIS FARRAKHAN TALKS ABOUT DONALD TRUMP’S CALL FOR BANNING MUSLIMS FROM AMERICA 

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan said in a recent interview that he supports Donald Trump’s call for barring all Muslims from entering the United States.

The Republican presidential front-runner also previously called for surveillance against mosques and said he was open to establishing a database for all Muslims living in the U.S.

Speaking to radio host Alex Jones, Farrakhan said American policies created the refugee crisis and have “united people against the West.” He argued that “no Muslim leader had the power to unite the whole Muslim world,” but that U.S. intervention in the area has succeeded in doing just that.

“So in this way, Mr. Trump I think is wise to vet anyone coming from that area into America because the hatred for America is in the streets now,” Farrakhan said. “So if those people are refugees and America feels, ‘I got to let 10,000 of them in,’ because America created the problem.”

“Now, if you let them in and you don’t vet them carefully, you might be letting in your own destruction,” he added.

Trump’s proposal was met with enthusiasm by many of his supporters.

“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 said in a statement released late last year. “Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life.”

Trump’s ban would remain in effect “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” His manager told CNN that the ban would apply not just to Muslim foreigners looking to immigrate to the U.S., but also to Muslims looking to visit the U.S. as tourists.
