Monday on “CNN Tonight,” host Don Lemon interviewed Feisal Abdul Rauf , the imam behind the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque” and chairman of the Cordoba Initiative, about GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s recently announced stance on Muslims entering the United States.
During the interview, Lemon asked Rauf what he would say to Trump given the opportunity to confront him personally. Rauf said he would declare Trump’s policy to be a “losing proposition.”
“I would tell him, ‘Mr. Donald Trump, your procedure is a losing proposition,’” Rauf said. “He doesn’t like to be a loser. You want to have a winning proposition, a winning — we can help you craft a winning strategy on how to get Muslims to work with you to send the message to ISIS that we do not support you, that your model on Islamic State is not your action anti-Islamic State, you are not preaching the true gospel of what Islam teaches.”
