US Politicians, Western Leaders Condemn Republican Donald Trump’s Anti-Muslims OutburstLatest News, U.S./Canada, World News Tuesday, December 8th, 2015
US Republican Presidential hopeful, Donald Trump’s outburst that Muslims should be barred from entering the country has been roundly condemned.
Trump has been quoted to have declared that many Muslims nursed “hatred” towards America.
The condemnation has been coming from fellow Republicans, Democrats, Political and Muslim leaders, the UN and foreign leaders who criticized that such assertion was dangerous and divisive.
Trump’s campaign Manager said the measure would be applied to “everybody” – would-be immigrants as well as tourists. But his boss contradicted him, when he told Fox News that it would “not apply to people living in the country”, noting that Muslims serving in the US military would “come home”.
Rival candidate, Jeb Bush described Mr. Trump as “unhinged” while former US Vice-President, Dick Cheney said the statement “goes against everything” the US and her people “stand for and believe in”.
Also, a statement issued from the White House held that Mr. Trump’s comments were contrary to the US’s values and its national security interests.
Consequently, the White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest has challenged the Republican party, to denounce its leading candidate, indicating further that the proposal equally “disqualifies him from serving as the US President”.
Earnest hit that Trump’s campaign had a “dustbin of history”, describing him as a “carnival barker” with “fake hair”.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron, in adding his voice, held that the statement credited to Trump were “divisive, unhelpful and quite simply wrong”.
