Donald Trump is under heavy attack after his recent comments towards a supporter. A comment was made towards Muslims with someone stating, “We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims.” Trump did not defend Muslims and stated that he would have reacted the same way if it was made against blacks.

“Speaking as new polls indicated that he continues to lead the Republican 2016 primary field, Trump rejected suggestions that he was wrong to indulge the man, who told him in New Hampshire on Thursday: “We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims.”
Asked on CNN if he would have felt moved to correct the supporter if the man had said “we have a problem in this world, it’s called blacks”, Trump refused to back down.
“No, I would have probably just listened to his question,” he said. “I mean, who am I?”
Trump has been sharply criticised for his response to the supporter, who stated President Obama was Muslim and claimed “we have training camps, growing, where they want to kill us” while asking the opening question at the rally in Derry.”
