WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump says “trouble’s coming out of the mosques” in the United States and “we’re being foolish, we’re kidding ourselves” if law enforcement doesn’t keep close surveillance on those houses of worship.
The Republican presidential candidate says such monitoring is needed as part of a terrorism-fighting strategy — even if there’s strong push-back to that idea. He says “we’ve taken political correctness to a point where we can’t do anything as a country anymore.”
He tells “Fox and Friends” why he thinks it’s imperative to conduct such surveillance in the country: “The problem’s not coming out of the middle of Sweden. It’s not coming out of Norway. It’s not coming out of Denmark.”
