Donald Trump has finally made the definitive move which proves once and for all that his candidacy is rife with racism, islamophobia, jingoism, and xenophobia, when he announced Monday afternoon that he feels we should have a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”
The statement, released on Trump’s website, shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone after Trump has previously argued that we should keep all American Muslims in a religious database and spy on their activities among a long list of other completely unforgivable statements and actions from the presidential candidate.

Of course, this will surely be followed shortly by a condemnation of Asians Americans, indigenous persons, and even African Americans will be next on his radar. No non-white individual is safe, and it is disgusting that there is not much that can be done to silence this waste of human space.
