Donald Trump Wants To Make Database To Track Every Muslim In America

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says that he’d support a database that keeps track of Muslims in the U.S. according to HuffPo reports:

“There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases,” he told NBC News on Thursday. “I would certainly implement that, absolutely.”

NBC’s Vaughn Hillyard asked how that plan would be different from when Nazis tracked Jewish people.

“You tell me,” Trump said.

On Thursday, Trump told Yahoo News that the U.S. would have to do “unthinkable” actions concerning followers of the Islamic faith and declined to rule out warrantless searches of American Muslims or identifying them by their religion in a database or national I.D. scheme.

Trump has gained political strength in the wake of the Nov. 13 Paris terrorist attacks, new polls show. A WBUR poll of Republican voters in New Hampshire conducted just after the attacks found Trump’s support had risen 4 points from a similar poll at the start of this month.

Former Florida Gov. and fellow 2016 hopeful Jeb Bush attacked Trump’s plans to register Muslims as a “weakness”, not a strength.

“We need to secure country in protection of values not in violation,” he said in a statement.

The Nazi government kept meticulous records of its Jewish population through Census data and forced them to wear yellow Star of David badges.
