Trump would deny full citizenship to Muslims

NBC - Donald Trump "would certainly implement" a database system tracking Muslims in the United States, the Republican front-runner told NBC News.

"I would certainly implement that. Absolutely," Trump said in Newton, Iowa, in between campaign town halls. "There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases," he added. "We should have a lot of systems."

When asked whether Muslims would be legally obligated to sign into the database, Trump responded, "They have to be — they have to be."

Ibrahim Hooper, national spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, sounded incredulous when he was asked about Trump's comments, telling NBC News: "We're kind of at a loss for words."

"What else can you compare this to except to prewar Nazi Germany?" Hooper asked. "There's no other comparison, and [Trump] seems to think that's perfectly OK."

The database already exists. With all the NSA knows about you, do you think they somehow leave out your religion?
