    Would British Muslims be banned too?

    Because I really really want to to work in New York after I graduate. I'm not wearing headscarf in my passport photo if that helps!

    I agree that America's problem with guns needs to be dealt with head on before anything can happen, then again, was not one of the recent attacks in Germany committed with guns? In a country whose gun laws are are as stringent as our own? I personally think the ideal happy medium would be something like the Switzerland system. Not as strict as British laws, but then again allowing people with a criminal record to get their hands on guns without doing a background check is foolhardy.

    The problem is not the people themselves because obviously we know its only a minority who does crap like this, but we need to start monitoring what mosque's preach more closely imo. Sharia law courts should be banned and mosque's put under the close supervision of the security services. That was whenever we can spot a Islamic hate preacher we can get him deported or otherwise silenced. Of course, that would need our full national powers back and even with Brexit its looking like we'll remain in the EEA so I don't see that happening any time soon
    Im not sure if Germanys gun laws are as strict as our own but we are massively helped by being surrounded by water

    Yes much needs to be done but i look forward to the "moderate" muslims reaction to someone proposing that

    No they won't; Trump is saying that nonsense to rile up and excite his least intelligent voters. It would be a foreign relations suicide, as it would damage America's relationship with certain Muslim countries that is required for economic reasons. What is he gong to do after that? Invade them?

    its a nonsense. a popularist publicity stunt to ride on the current topical problems going on in the world with islamist groups. He wouldnt actually ban all muslims, there may well be higher scrutiny in checkpoints and by authorities etc but then you could argue thats going to happen globally anyway due to the lase few decades of rising islamist spread.

    Trump is taking out of his behind as usual, hes got tons of investments in China and the middle east, he is not going to jeopardise them by being a **** to Muslims or the Chinese.

    He is all bluster and talking down to the dumbasses that will vote for him thinking he is going to get tough on them, he won't, he is a business man first and president second.

    As if middle-easterners can afford to hold the world's superpower(or wealthy states in general) to economic ransom...I mean it's not like their entire economic ascension can be credited to the sheer luck of their natural resources or anything.

    Poor comparison considering the magnanimity of the arab world's recent boom, courtesy of their oil exports. I wonder how well a potential decision to fast-track back into third-world living standards would be taken by your average Saudi civilian. Regardless, even if they did choose to commit economic suicide(i.e. cutting ties with the us,and potentially the rest of the western world by proxy), US dependence on Arab oil has been decreasing rapidly.

    The oil producing states can bankrupt the US in an instant if they switch the currency oil is bought in from dollars to Euros.
