Donald Trump – US Presidential Candidate says “I Love Muslims”

SHAFAQNA - US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that he loved Muslims and that he would contemplate using a Muslim in his Cabinet. 

Trump, who is a front-runner among Republicans, made the remarks on Saturday when he was asked a question by CNN on what his take was on Muslim people. 

“I love the Muslims. I think they’re great people,” Trump said after delivering a lecture to high school students in Urbandale, Iowa. 

During a question-and-answer session with students, one student said that she regarded Muslim-Americans as an important segment of the country, asking Trump whether he would ponder putting a Muslim in his Cabinet or on his ticket. 

“Oh, absolutely,” Trump responded. “No problem with that.” 

The billionaire businessman, however, has not reacted to a questioner at a recent town hall meeting Thursday who suggested the US should “get rid” of Muslims. 

Trump did not challenge an idea given by the questioner who said President Barack Obama was a Muslim and not American. 

“Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don’t think so!” he tweeted. 

Trump continues to dominate the crowded Republican field and according to new survey, a growing number of Republican voters in the US believe he is the most likely GOP candidate to win the 2016 presidential election.
