Trump Calls for 'Total and Complete Shutdown of Muslims Entering the United States' -- UPDATE: New Photo Shows San Bernardino Terror Couple Entering USA...
Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Monday called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," the most dramatic response yet to the string of terrorist attacks that have Americans increasingly on edge.
Trump released a statement citing polling data he says shows "there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population."
"Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life," Trump said.
Trump's announcement comes the day after President Barack Obama addressed the nation, calling on Americans "to reject religious tests on who we admit into this country."
