Forget political polls. If you wish to know how the majority of Americans think, listen to Donald Trump.
Here is what The Donald told ABC News on Sunday:
“I want a database for the refugees that if they come into the country. We have no idea who these people are when the Syrian refugees start pouring into this country. We don’t know if it’s ISIS. I definitely want a database and other checks and balances. We have no idea who’s being sent in here. It could be the great Trojan Horse of all time. when they come in. When I look at the migration and the lines and I see all strong, very powerful looking men, they’re men, very few women and children, There’s something strange going on.”
And, “We have to be strong. They don’t use waterboarding, they used chopping off peoples heads. They use drowning people. I don’t know if you have seen with the cages, where they put people in cages and they drown them in the ocean and they lift out the cage, and we are taking about waterboarding … I would bring it back, yes, I would bring it back. I think waterboarding is peanuts compared to what they’re doing us. What they did to James Foley, when they chopped off his head. That’s a whole different level. I would absolutely bring back interrogation and strong interrogation.”
Yahoo News led the media charge against Trump: "Donald Trump wants to create database for Syrian refugees, surveil mosques, bring back waterboarding."
Most Americans are cool with all that, which is why he continues to rise in the polls.
I cannot disagree with the man. And then there is this from Rush Limbaugh:
