(CNN) — Donald Trump on Monday suggested he would “strongly consider” shutting down mosques in the U.S. as part of the response to the terror attacks in Paris.
“Well, I would hate to do it but it’s something you’re going to have to strongly consider,” Trump said during an interview on MSNBC. “Some of the absolute hatred is coming from these areas. … The hatred is incredible. It’s embedded. The hatred is beyond belief. The hatred is greater than anybody understands.”
Trump’s comments come a day after France’s interior minister said he would pursue the “dissolution of mosques where hate is preached.”
