Skip to comments.Donald Trump Corrects the Record: Media Proposed Muslim Database, Not Me
Posted on 11/20/2015 11:47:54 AM PST by BigEdLB
Donald Trump corrected reports from the media suggesting that he actually wanted a government database for all Muslim Americans to be registered in order to stop terrorism.
âI didnât suggest a database â a reporter did,â he wrote on Twitter moments ago. âWe must defeat Islamic terrorism and have surveillance, including a watch list, to protect America.â
The media spent most of the day reacting to Trumpâs positive reaction to a question posed by reporters as to whether he supported a plan to register American Muslims.

Soon enough, the media will try to take credit for the Muslim database once it has been established and proven to work.
I like Trumps response. Short and to the point.
Democrat Propaganda agents were criminally lying again? They need to be brought up on Federal Election Commission charges for attempting to tamper with an election by deliberately promulgating known falsehoods.
We need to hammer these media bastards every chance we get. We need to be working on ways to put these Democrat agents in prison for election tampering.
This is his new Tweet. Now he’s muddying the issue with the concept of a terrorist watch list. Looks like he’s trying to weasel out of making a mistake yesterday.
Donald J. Trump â@realDonaldTrump 1h1 hour ago
I didn’t suggest a database-a reporter did. We must defeat Islamic terrorism & have surveillance, including a watch list, to protect America
The treasonists are moving on to the loaded question method now to bring down Trump. Why don’t they try this crap with Hitlery? Oh no, she is off limits. How about asking her stuff like “Back when your husband raped Juanita Brodderrick and you stood by him, do you feel your views on supporting rape are the same or have they evolved?”
We need a ‘fabricating journalist’ watch list.
And stiff penalties for such deception.
Rush played the audio of what Trump said .. the media, as usual, played their usual tricks.
TRUMP DID NOT SAY WHAT THE MEDIA IS ACCUSING HIM OF.
DON’T BUY IT .. IT’S JUST ANOTHER MEDIA ATTACK ON TRUMP.
Carson, Cruz, Jeb all are disparaging Trump.
“Donald Trump Corrects the Record: Media Proposed Muslim Database, Not Me”
If I were him, I would have pointed out that it was Democrats that proposed it via their Media branch.
Cruz? I doubt that.
We have a watch list now.
LIar. Cruz never disparaged Trump you fool.
The difference of course is the Jews were not beheading, raping, murdering . . . .
Nothing wrong with nice comfortable "Sharia Camps" for Islamists, Jihadists..
while secular Muslims are accepted and protected. In my view.
I wrote to Trump on Twitter yesterday saying that same exact thing and also asked him to considering suing. This is outrageous where the media can just make stuff up like this then spread it like wildfire throughout social media. That idiot George Takei yesterday spread that story yesterday...This is was on Facebook, so I wrote him and told him “Calm down old man, you’ve been scammed” That guy has I believe 9 million followers, so that’s a potential 9 million people that saw that false story. This stuff ain’t no joke, this is absolute pure slander what they are doing to Trump.
Yes here is what he wrote.........

In an interview, Donald Trump refused to rule out requiring all Muslims to carry special religious identification, or to rule out warrantless searches of their homes and places of worship. Said Trump, “Weâre going to have to do things that we never did beforeâ¦.weâre going to have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.” Many recall, with horror, how Jews were forced to wear special religious identification in Nazi Germany—a yellow star of David. In the U.S., my own family, and over a hundred thousand other Japanese Americans, were tagged like mere pieces of luggage, with no charges, with no trial, with no due process, before they shipped us off to prison camps.
Mr. Trump, unto my last dying breath, I shall oppose this madness. I shall continue to speak out, whether on social media or from our stage in Allegiance on Bway, against the dangers of racial or religious profiling and its dehumanizing effect. Yours is the first step toward the destruction of all we hold dear, and to that I and all good people must say, “Never again, never again, never, never, never again.â
If you read the media, it would sound like he did, but he didn’t. He said,”And Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has largely avoided criticizing Trump throughout the 2016 campaign, said that while he was a fan of the billionaire businessman, âIâm not a fan of government registries of American citizens.ââThe First Amendment protects religious liberty, and Iâve spent the past several decades defending the religious liberty of every American,â Cruz told reporters in Sioux City, Iowa.” http://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/nation-politics/trump-wants-database-of-muslims-in-u-s-carson-ratchets-up-rhetoric-too/ No where does he put down Trump.
Doesn’t anyone think we shouldn’t have a terrorist watch list?
