NEW HAMPSHIRE (IINA) – U.S.Presidential Race 2016 nominee from the Republican Party Donald Trump has attacked Muslims on Thursday during a question and answer session in Rochester, DPA reported.

Trump, who is infamous for his attacks against Mexicans, women, immigrants and military, has expanded his attacks to Muslims as well, which provoked a round of outrage on Friday over the leading Republican Party nominee’s statements.

According to broadcast footage and local newspapers, Trump indicated that he would look into getting rid of Muslims.

During the session, one man stood up and said: “We have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims … We know our current president is one – you know he’s not even an American … That’s my question — when can we get rid of them?”, Trump went along with the comments and said: “We’re going to be looking at a lot of different things. A lot of people are saying bad things are happening and we’re going to be looking at that and plenty of other things”.

A second supporter agreed and applauded the first man, saying that “Obama is a Muslim born abroad”. “Right”, was Trump’s response.
