(Try to leave political bias aside on this one) If you had the choice, would you disqualify Donald Trump from being president based on his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country?

No, that should be left up to the voters.

Can you imagine how much liberals would love Trump if he were yelling about gun control or women's rights. They would be falling all over themselves trying to kiss his feet. But since he has a different point of view then he must be Satan himself and be disqualified.

Not just that but everything he's standing for and shouting about.

The constitution doesn't say you can be president as long as you don't say stupid things. As long as he meets the criteria of a person running for President, he can run. You can't disqualify someone from running or people from voting for him just because he says things you disagree with.

Haven't seen the complete quote but have been told that Trump didn't express a permanent immigration ban.
He was expressing that their needs to be workable vetting procedure in place 1st.
If this is correct then shame on the media for misquoting Mr Trump.

Maybe not misquoting but changing the intent of the statement.

Many presidents have done the same thing. Carter banned all immigration from Iran during the hostage crisis. The media is blowing this up over nothing. It's not a permanent ban.

Putting a hold on letting in Muslims from unstable hostile countries , until they can be properly vetted sounds like common sense to me. It is not unconstitutional to put a hold on immigration.

*Just* for that? ... 🤔 ... No. There are plenty of reasons, corporately, to understand that desire, though. 🤗

"Should we have banned the anti-federalists for opposing the constitution's ratification?"

I don't see how a person can take an oath to support and defend our constitution which clearly allows for religious freedom, and at the same time refuse people of one religion admittance to our country.

The constitution protects U.S. Citizens, not foreigners. Jimmy Carter did the same thing.

Having any sort of rediculous views is not grounds for disqualification of candidacy. That is up to the people to decide.

No. He simply wants to protect people.

I see your side and respect your right to have your own opinion, however I believe that it violates the constitution which is one of the documents that keeps our government in line. (Feel free to rebut, I love political discussions)

Of course, and I respect yours. I am for keeping out non US citizen Muslims because .. well, the Qu'ran has some pretty nasty things in it.

I personally haven't read any of it so personally I will refrain from commenting on its contents, but one of the intentions of the country was religious freedom and what Trump said contradicts that in my opinion. Also CNN stated that the proposal put us on high risk with possible Muslim terrorists so something needs to happen before Trump makes our terrorism problem worse.

Yes.. true. I'm just saying, from his point of view it seems to work.

The abrahamic religions in general have nasty things in their books, but Islam still has followers that have a 3%-30% population that follows the runs (growing daily).. so it's somewhere between 30 million and 300 million.. which is around the popula

Yeah it is really all a matter of personal views... And environment Trump probably associates with people who have similar views as him so I can see how he thinks it is the right thing to do.

Yep .. at the end of the day Trump wants to help us. I'm glad he cares about America, heh. We need more people like that
