Trump's trumpet lands him in another controversy
Sept 17, Washington: Donald Trump has done it again, his controversial comment about President Obama being Muslim has now come under fire.
According to reports, Trump, who has shaken off high-profile controversies that would have ended other presidential campaigns, faced an immediate backlash from advocacy groups, and members of his own party distanced themselves from the GOP front-runner.
The incident was more lik the back flash of Trump's 2011 quest to challenge Obama on where he was born, which ended with Obama releasing his long-form birth certificate.
On Thursday, "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 Trump at a rally Thursday night. "You know our current president is one. You know he's not even an American."
In response to this, Trump interrupted the man, chuckling, "We need this question. This is the first question."
Meanwhile, his comments were quickly denounced by Democrats. Hillary Clinton, the party's front-runner for president, personally tweeted late Thursday that Trump's remarks were "just plain wrong." "Donald Trump not denouncing false statements about POTUS & hateful rhetoric about Muslims is disturbing, & just plain wrong. Cut it out. -H"
