The US presidential frontrunner said Barack Obama should stop all Muslims travelling in and out of the country until they can “figure out what is going on” with regards to Islamic State (ISIS) inspired terror attacks.
It was tonight unclear how the controversial Republican, who opinion polls suggest is on course to win the presidential nomination, believes an entry criteria based on religious beliefs could be enforced.
n a series of incendiary remarks Mr Trump said that Muslims have displayed a “hatred” towards the US and should be barred from entering as a result.
He said: “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension.

“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.”
