If Trump wants the government to act on his proposal, he might have overlooked one roadblock: the U.S. Constitution.By Christina Hartman | November 16, 2015
On MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was asked if he would support closing mosques in the U.S. in light of Friday's attacks in Paris.
"I would hate it do it, but it's something that you're going to have to strongly consider because of the ideas and some of the hatred, the absolute hatred is coming from these areas in my opinion," he said.
Though later in the program, he did acknowledge that radical elements "are a small percentage of the entire Muslim population."
