Trump on Beating ISIS: 'You Have to Take Out Their Families'

Claims of Intolerance at ‘Clock Kid’s’ School Disputed by Muslim Valedictorian

Donald Trump called into "On the Record" this evening to explain why he's proposing "a total and complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States in light of recent terrorist attacks.

Trump said that President Obama and those who think like him are refusing to acknowledge - let alone face - the problem of radical Islamic terrorism.

He explained that a significant number of Muslims around the world have "tremendous animosity" towards Americans, and we simply cannot let terror attacks like what happened in San Bernardino continue to occur.

"We have to be vigilant," Trump stated. "We have an obligation to protect our citizens. We're not doing it with a president like President Obama. He doesn't have a clue. He doesn't know what he's doing."

"It's the safety of our country that we're talking about."
