Donald Trump Favors 'National Database' for Muslims in U.S.

Washington, November 20 (RHC)-- U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he would be open to having a “Muslim database” in America for security reasons. Trump made his latest controversial remarks about Muslims in an interview with Yahoo News, published on Thursday, in the wake of attacks in Paris that left at least 132 people dead and hundreds injured one week ago.

Trump, who earlier said that the U.S. would have "absolutely no choice" but to close down some mosques, told Yahoo News that he would consider “drastic measures” for monitoring the Muslim community. He said that "we're going to have to look at a lot of things very closely" when asked about establishing a national database for Muslims.

Donald Trump said that certain things would have to be done "that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy." The billionaire businessman said the United States will adopt certain measures that were "frankly unthinkable a year ago.”
