    During the debate, it seems that most Muslim Americans took Trumps arguments as being anti-Islam

    Who here agrees or disagrees?

    Trump's (by the way discredited by fact-checkers) claim is that (most?) Muslims don't report someone who is going to kill a bunch of people. How is that not "anti-Islam"?

    He was pointing out that the fear of being labeled and demonized by political correct nazis may have cost the lives of the victims of the San Bernadino attack.

    I took what he said as being, the more Islamic attacks occur on US soil the more Islamophobia will then ensue. So if you want to decrease such fears, rat out the terrorists.

    Donald Trump wants to ban all Muslims entering this country, even if they do it legally. If that's not anti Muslim....what is???

    And how many people do you think will not "rat out the terrorists"?

    Dunno, but the more Islamic terrorism there is the worse the phobia will be surrounding them.

    That's just common sense.

    I believe he was most concerned with people coming out of Syria, which is an ISIS stronghold.
