MOSCOW (Sputnik) – In December 2015, Trump expressed support for limited profiling of Muslims, in cases when relatives or neighbors thought they acted suspicious.
"You know, I hate the concept of profiling. But we have to start using common sense, and we have to use, you know, we have to use our heads… we really have to look at profiling. We have to look at it seriously," Trump said, speaking on the CBS television channel’s "Face the Nation" program.
He noted that there are countries that conduct such profiling.
"You look at Israel and you look at others and they do it and they do it successfully," Trump said.
Last week, the controversial presidential hopeful reiterated his call for the United States to suspend immigration from any country with a history of Islamic extremism. He has previously called for temporarily banning all Muslims from entering the United States until their identity is determined.
