The hacking group said it is turning its focus to the leading Republican presidential candidate after he said all Muslims entering the United States should be banned.
The property tycoon and reality TV star, who is seeking the Republican nomination for next year’s Presidential election, sparked outrage with his call for Muslims to be barred from entering the USA and his claim that parts of London were so “radicalised” that police feared for their lives.
However, opposition from Republican respondents is not as strong: 42 per cent said they support Trump’s Muslim ban, while 36 per cent said they oppose it. Fully 54% of Republicans agreed with Trump, while 38% disagreed. Trump is far atop the field on decisiveness. “In fact, I did a campaign ad for him, and he’s a good man, but I didn’t want to put him under pressure”, Trump said. “You know, I think for weeks, you and everybody else were just bringing folks to hysterical laughter, but now he has gone way over the line”.
“I think we need to get a grip on our borders, period”.
Clinton alternated between tugging at the heartstrings with messages of inclusiveness and capitalising on Trump’s comments in ways that some Democrats considered unseemly. It was after the petition was lodged that Mr Trump made his anti-Muslim remarks.
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson came in second among Republicans with 12 percent in the Reuters/Ipsos poll, and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush tied with 10 percent.
Leaders in Britain, France, Israel and Canada denounced him, and the fallout hurt the real estate mogul’s global brand.
The businessman, who owns two golf courses in Scotland – Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeenshire and Trump Turnberry in South Ayrshire – has been stripped of an honorary degree from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen and had his membership of the GlobalScot business network removed. And that’s what mattered most to Republicans surveyed in a new Associated Press-GfK poll. The poll had a credibility interval, a measure of accuracy, of 5 percentage points. The more Muslims feel sad, the more ISIS feels they can recruit them.
Beyond the shaky legal grounds, Trump’s cop killer proclamation may also not sit well with conservatives who have consistently slammed President Barack Obama for using his executive authority too broadly to implement policy proposals he could not pass through Congress. “Americans don’t seem to understand what danger is”.
In a statement Wednesday, Netanyahu rejected Trump’s comments about Muslims, saying Israel “respects all religions”.
Thursday’s event, which was closed to the general public, attracted around 150 protesters, who gathered in front of the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel with signs denouncing Trump’s plan.
