Yesterday at a town hall in Rochester, NH, Donald Trump took a question from someone in the audience. It was about Muslims.
First of all, it may be that the questioner was a plant who was trying to get Trump to say something inflammatory. Having said that, I don't think Trump handled it well. Saying that he was going to look into it doesn't come off well, and it must be said that he gives too many answers like that while not going into specifics as to what exactly he would do as president.
More importantly, I think he would have done better to say that if the man was referring to all Muslims, he was wrong, and that he (Trump) has no evidence that Obama is anything other than a Christian who was born in the US. Then he could have said how he will deal with radical Islamists, whether overseas or here in the US.
As to the reference to the terrorist training camp, there have been reports about radical Muslims in some compound somewhere in upper New York State who do military training. Is it true? I don't know, but if so, seems to me the FBI would have raided it long ago a'la Waco.
I myself would like to know what Trump's position is on militant Islam and what he would do about it. He didn't exactly illuminate it, did he? Sooner or later, Trump can't just identify problems and say he was going to have the best experts with him and he was going to be the greatest president when it comes to-fill-in-the blank. Eventually, Republican voters are not going to let him get away with it.
Or are they?
