Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called Monday for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," an idea that prompted one of his rivals to call him "unhinged." Trump held a campaign event in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina on Monday:

TRUMP: We put out a statement today. It's impossible to watch this gross incompetence that I watched last night. And we put out a statement a little while ago and these people (the media) went crazy... Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on!

[APPLAUSE]

We have no choice. We have no choice. We have no choice.

According to Pew Research, among others, there is a great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from Center for Secure Policy released data showing that 25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans, some of those are people that are here, not 1% -- by the way, 1% will be unacceptable, 1% is unacceptable, 25% of those polled agree that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as part of the global jihad.

They want to change your religion. I don't think so. I don't think so. Not going to happen. As part of the global jihad. And 51% of those polled agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shari'a.
