‘Swedes didn’t blow up the Word Trade Center’

20 Sep, 2015

Trump is interviewed by Tapper on CNN’s State Of The Union. Tapper asks about the “Muslim question” controversy:

Tapper: [Y]ou are running to be president of United States of America. That includes millions of peaceful, law-abiding Muslims who love this country. This man said, quote, we have a problem in this country called Muslims. You’re not responsible for what he says, but this is unvarnished ignorant bigotry. You are a leader. You are the frontrunner in the Republican race. Do you not have a responsibility to call out the hatred?
Trump: We could be politically correct, if you want, but are you trying to say we don’t have a problem. I think everybody would agree. I have friends that are Muslims. They’re great people, amazing people. And most Muslims like most everyone these are fabulous people, but we certainly do have a problem. I mean, you have a problem throughout the world.
Tapper: What’s the problem?
Tump: Well, you have radicals that are doing things. It wasn’t people from Sweden that blow up the World Trade Center, Jake.
