Throughout the entire Trump v. Muslims issue in the 2016 election cycle, Trump has gained a great deal of popular support from anti-Muslim bigots for his call to ban Muslim immigration until “we can figure out what the hell is going on.”

Since that statement, Trump and his supporters have been careful to distinguish that a Trump administration would ban non-citizen Muslims, but during an interview with Sean Hannity this week, Trump put his foot in his mouth when he said he would deport a suspicious American citizen as well.

Referring to the father of the Pulse mass shooter, Seddique Mateen, Hannity asked,

“What do we do when we find somebody who has extreme views, do we throw them the hell out?”

Said Trump,

“I’d throw him out. If you look at him, I’d throw him out. You know, I looked at him, and you look, he’s smiling . . . He’s got a big smile on his face during the whole thing, he obviously liked what he heard, y’know, from her.”

There you have it, folks. If a president Trump sees you as a threat for whatever reason, he has no problem violating your constitutional rights and booting you right out of the country.

Or maybe later he will “pivot” and throw you in a concentration camp instead for speaking against the dear leader? You never know what levels of “great” Trump will be willing to sink to.
