Donald Trump: We Have To Do 'Frankly Unthinkable' Things To Monitor American Muslims

Donald Trump at New Hampshire Rally 2015

As president, Donald Trump would deport all Syrian refugees and subject all Muslims in America to heavy surveillance, possibly including registering them in a database and giving them special identification.

“We’re going to have to do things that we never did before, Trump told Yahoo Politics on Nov. 19. "And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule. And certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy."

He added that the nation is going to "have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago."

The billionaire businessman continued his hard line on national security by calling out the Obama Administration's plan to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees fleeing ISIS, saying that he would immediately deport them all:

“They’re going to be gone. They will go back. … I’ve said it before, in fact, and everyone hears what I say, including them, believe it or not. But if they’re here, they have to go back, because we cannot take a chance. You look at the migration, it’s young, strong men. We cannot take a chance that the people coming over here are going to be ISIS-affiliated.”

Yahoo asked Trump whether he would register Muslims in a database or require religious  identification. He would not rule it out.

“We’re going to have to — we’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” Trump answered. “We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”

His statement has already sparked a huge backlash, including one on social media where Muslim Americans are posting images of their special "special ID badges" for the military and public services, according to the BBC.

He has backpedaled slightly from the issue but has not yet said that he is against special IDs for Muslims.
