Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump repeated his suggestion to ban Muslims from entering the United States until a proper vetting system is put into place and the need to surveillance mosques in order to prevent terrorism during his campaign rally on Wednesday in Atlanta, Georgia.
Trump said the Orlando terrorist, Omar Mateen, who killed at least 49 people inside a gay nightclub on Sunday may have been born in the U.S. but “his ideas were born from someplace else.”
“We have to maybe check, respectfully, the mosques and we have to check other places because this is a problem that, if we don’t solve it, it’s going to eat our country alive,” Trump stated.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton criticized Trump’s rhetoric, saying it has grown “even more inflammatory.”
“Not one of Donald Trump’s reckless ideas would have saved a single life in Orlando,” Clinton argued during a campaign event in Virginia.
