Donald Trump’s latest campaign rhetoric has stooped to devastating lows, with the businessman failing to correct an anti-Muslim supporter who claimed President Barack Obama was a Muslim.

Trump was at a Rochester, New Hampshire campaign rally when he had the exchange with a supporter on Thursday, according to Think Progress. After stating the president wasn’t American, the supporter went on to ask Trump how to “get rid” of Muslims. Using the term to generalize Indian citizens, the man then claimed Muslims have been making training camps to plan a cultural genocide.

CNN reports:

“We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims,” an unidentified man who spoke at a question-and-answer town hall event in Rochester, New Hampshire asked the mogul at a rally Thursday night. “You know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American.”

A seemingly bewildered Trump interrupted the man, chuckling, “We need this question. This is the first question.”

“Anyway, we have training camps growing where they want to kill us,” the man, wearing a “Trump” T-shirt, continued. “That’s my question: When can we get rid of them?”

Trump didn’t do much to refute the outrageous claims. Instead, he said his campaign will conduct a plan.

“We’re going to be looking at a lot of different things,” Trump replied. “You know, a lot of people are saying that and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening. We’re going to be looking at that and many other things.”

The businessman, who is ahead in the GOP field by 10 points, subsequently received an immense amount of backlash from his competitors, his own party, and from Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

“GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s racism knows no bounds. This is certainly horrendous, but unfortunately unsurprising given what we have seen already,” she said. “The vile rhetoric coming from the GOP candidates is appalling. (Republicans) should be ashamed, and all Republican presidential candidates must denounce Trump’s comments immediately or will be tacitly agreeing with him.”

Democratic presidential front-runners Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders had this to say to Trump on Twitter:

Trump must apologize to the president and American people for continuing the lie that the president is not an American and not a Christian.

Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager, said the businessman didn’t hear the comments about Obama being Muslim. He also said Trump was addressing the removal of alleged training camps, not the existence of Muslims in America. Via CNN:

“All he heard was a question about training camps, which he said we have to look into,” Lewandowski said. “The media want to make this an issue about Obama, but it’s about him waging a war on Christianity.”

In 2011, Trump was one of the president’s biggest “birther” opponents, insisting that Obama’s birth certificate from Hawaii was fake.

  1. Trump is treading some dangerous ground with his so called “Muslim Witch Hunt”!!!!

    First he called the Mexicans, Rapists/Murderers, now he wants to deport all the Muslims in this country.
    I wonder what group of folks is next on his hit list-African-Americans??????????

    Trump is stirring up s–t when it is un-necessary. It is unfortunate that he has so many followers who share the same warped thinking as he does!!!!!!!!

    • Well some of them are rapist and murders, the lady in San Francisco killed by
      Illegal deported many times the black teen in LA gunned down by illegals while his mother was serving in Iraq, there is a growing problem with crimes being committed by illegals (their not all here to do the jobs we won’t) he also said nothing about deporting Muslims but there is a growing problem with radicals (Boston bombing, military base shootings) and now this administration wants to bring in 100’s of thousands
      From a reign that’s a hot bed for ISIS and al-Qaida , think about that the next time you leave your house or send your kids off to school which is a favored target for terrorist groups in Africa

    There is supposedly a national {Poll out that suggests that 43% of the GOP still believes that Obama is a muslim and/or that he is not really from the U.S. The media, as well as the people they poll are being very Disingenuous This is a totally false narrative. That isn’t the case at all. What is the real truth is that these 43% simply pretend that they believe this because it gives them an excuse ( a poor one at that) to continue spewing the hated and racism out of their mouths. They know he is a Christian! They know he is a U.S. citizen! However, admitting that would take the sword of bigotry out of their mouths, so they will never admit it. They are simply lying to themselves, and lying to the world in order to keep their hate alive.

  3. How quickly the left forgets. Hillary Clinton was asked in 2008 on “60 minutes” if Obama was a Muslim:

    Of course not. I mean, that’s, you know, there is no basis for that. You know, I take him on the basis of what he says. And, you know, there isn’t any reason to doubt that,” she answered.

    “You said you’d take Senator Obama at his word that he’s not a Muslim. You don’t believe that he’s a Muslim?” Kroft said.

    “No. No, there is nothing to base that on,” Clinton said, adding, “As far as I know.”

    Gosh Mrs. Clinton that’s a real rousing vote of confidence, isn’t it?

    My President will be leaving office soon. Why are all these idiots talking about him? None of these repugnant fools can touch what Obama has done for this country.

  5. I am not surprised Trump did not denounce what that man said at his rally.

    Some news reporters said that McCain did a good job correcting that woman who said that Obama was a Muslim. However, some have forgotten that at the beginning of their 2008 campaign, McCain and Palin ORIGINALLY FABRICATED the idea and put it into their supporter’s minds that Obama was a Muslim. Later, McCain and Palin said Obama was a terrorist, tying him to Bill Ayers.

    Most people can see through Trump’s lies and childish behavior but some still hold on to what he says as factual and will support him until the end. Sadly, those are the same people that are easily fooled and will do whatever they are told without doing any research on their own.

  6. Donald trump knows Obama isn’t a Muslim. He’s not allow to admit it to his nutcase base supporters. I’m sick of it coming up. I will be so glad as I’m sure his wife will be when his term is up. Smh
