Quote of the Day: Donald Trump Wants to Ban All Muslims… Except for His Rich Muslim Friends

One of the positions that seems to endear people to Trump the most is his insistence on a complete and total ban on Muslims entering the United States. It whipped his vocal minority into a frenzy, while the rest of the country thought, Is this guy crazy??, because not only is the idea of banning someone from entering the country based on their religion unconstitutional, it’s also not feasible. How exactly does Trump propose to find out what religion someone practices? How does he know someone won’t just lie and say they’re Christian, or an atheist, or Hindu? He doesn’t know. Don’t ask him tough questions, remember? He’s going to ban Muslims and he’s going to do it because he’s a WINNER. It’ll be YUGE, right? But like all corrupt people, there is always a way around the red tape for Donald Trump when it comes to people he likes. Only the losers have to play by the rules, right Donald? He’s got the same outlook for his supposed Muslim ban. How will Trump’s anti-Muslim supporters feel when they find out that Trump will still let his rich Muslim friends into the country, even with the “ban”?

After moderator Chris Matthews asked Trump how a ban on Muslim immigrants would encourage people to fight the Islamic State, Trump said, “I have been called by more Muslims saying what you are doing is a great thing, not a bad thing.”

When pressed by Matthews, Trump added, “I have, actually, believe it or not, I have a lot of friends that are Muslim and they call me. In most cases, they’re very rich Muslims.”

“But do they get into the country?” Matthews then asked.

“Oh, they’ll come in,” Trump responded, later adding that the ban will have exceptions.

You’d think this would be deeply disturbing to Trump’s supporters. After all, they’re super concerned about terrorism, right? That’s why they’re so in favor of a Muslim ban. But Trump doesn’t actually want to ban Muslims (nor would he be able to actually do it, but we’ll move on from that). He said himself that he’ll be all too happy to let his “rich Muslim friends” come in. It’s typical for Trump, actually. He’s proven time and time again that he’s willing to use the government for his own means, paying off politicians to block bills he doesn’t like, using government force to evict people if they’re in the way. Of course he won’t have his rich friends be subjected to the same laws as us little people.

Meanwhile, guess who helps finance terrorism? You guessed it: rich Muslims. ISIS calls them “angel investors”. But, you know, Donald Trump really knows a lot about defeating ISIS and stopping Islamic terrorism, right? And it’s hardly a new development; rich Muslims funding terrorism is an issue that’s been going on for decades. Osama bin Laden is the most notable example, a very wealthy Muslim from a very wealthy Muslim family, who spent his money financing Al Qaeda and their terrorist attacks against the west. Donald Trump would know that if he bothered to do even two minutes worth of research. But he doesn’t know what he’s talking about, as usual, nor does he give a damn about stopping terrorism.

Trump’s supporters would be wise to actually listen to what he is saying and think about what it will mean for this country. Yelling really loudly about stopping ISIS and banning Muslims doesn’t mean that he can or will actually follow through with what he’s saying.

    No, it is not. The rights in the Constitution are protected for Americans and residents, not for foreigners desiring to enter the country (or for those who have illegally entered the country, imho – they are not properly ‘under US jurisdiction’).

    Having said that… this isn’t terribly surprising. Every time Trump shouts out some absolutist position, he backs it off to accommodate either a more populist position or some of his cronies. The guy is a policy train wreck.

    However, if we’re in the handbasket, headed for hell, he at least makes for a more entertaining ride than the golem in a pantsuit. (And I happen to think we are already firmly ensconced in the handbasket, in the express elevator headed down, with the cables freshly greased. I’m still voting for Cruz.)
