Trump: No Time to Be Politically Correct on Islam

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

By    |   Friday, 11 March 2016 10:07 AM

Donald Trump, who came under fire earlier this week for telling CNN's Anderson Cooper that he believes "Islam hates us," insisted Friday that when it comes to dealing with radical Islam, he is not going to be politically correct, and that means he meant "many" Muslims hate the United States.

"I said many, I mean many," Trump told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

"There's no question about it. I don't have to be politically correct . . . When you look at it on television, look at some of the mosques in the Middle East where they are screaming, 'death to America, death to America,' it doesn't look like it's about 2 percent to me.

"So I make the statement. And look, we have a problem and they have a problem."

Further, Trump said he does respect the Kurds in the Middle East as having been on the side of the United States, but at the same time, there have been many nations who had been considered allies who ended up "turning against us."

"We have given so many billions of dollars of weaponry and everything else and then all of a sudden, we find out that the weapons are turned against us," he said.

"That the people that we thought were on our side, were not on our side. But I do respect the Kurds. They seem to be the ones that have most helped . . . But boy, there's tremendous hatred there. No question about it."

And what the United States is doing right now is not working, Trump continued.

"We have to rebuild our country," he said. "We have to knock out ISIS. We have no choice but to knock out ISIS and to knock them out big and rapidly. We have to get rid of them. You know they're chopping off heads.

"This is medieval times we're talking about. We have to stop being politically correct about the war. We fight the war in a politically correct way. We don't bomb certain areas because we're worried about air pollution. Hard to believe."
