Trump’s controversial call to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, which he says will prevent domestic terrorism, has become one of the key proposals of his campaign. He broadened that ban in a foreign policy address delivered Monday in New Hampshire, saying it would encompass immigration from "from areas of the world where there's a proven history of terrorism against the United States, Europe and our allies."
Trump has also accused American Muslims of concealing radicalization within their own communities and has warned that more domestic terror attacks are imminent as a result.
“The Muslims have to work with us,” Trump said in his speech Monday “They know what’s going on. They know that [Orlando gunman Omar Mateen] was bad. They knew the people in San Bernardino were bad. But you know what? They didn’t turn them in. And you know what? We had death and destruction.”
Muslims make up about 1 percent of the total population in the United States, according to a Pew Research estimate published earlier this year. There were about 3.3 millions Muslims in the United States as of 2015.
