Donald Trump said in the wake of the Brussels terror attacks Tuesday that “we have to deal with the mosques,” renewing his controversial call for more government surveillance of Islamic mosques in the U.S.
Trump was defending his earlier call to ban all Muslims seeking to enter the U.S. and criticized New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio for stopping surveillance of Islamic mosques in the city. In November, Trump called for a “complete and total shutdown” of Muslims coming into the U.S. following the Paris terror attacks.
“Frankly, look, we’re having problems with the Muslims, and we’re having problems with Muslims coming into the country,” Trump told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo.
“You need surveillance. You need to deal with the mosques whether we like it or not,” Trump added.
