From The Washington Post:
To kick things off, Trump pointed at a man in the audience: “Okay, this man. I like this guy.”
“We have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims,” the man said. “We know our current president is one. You know, he’s not even an American. Birth certificate, man.”
“Right,” Trump said, then adding with a shake of his head: “We need this question? This first question.”
“But any way,” the man said. “We have training camps... where they want to kill us.”
“Uh huh,” Trump said.
“That’s my question: When can we get rid of them?” the man said.
Trump responded: “We’re going to be looking at a lot of different things. You know, a lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We’re going to look at that and plenty of other things.”
So first off, technically, Trump didn’t call President Obama a Muslim (who is, in fact, a Christian born in Hawaii). Also technically, his response was specifically about training camps, not Muslims, Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told The Washington Post.
To put this exchange into perspective, with a history of bizarre birther campaign tactics from Trump and perhaps even more bizarre claims by the right of Muslim training camps, it’s Trump’s lack of words—for once—that’s causing eyes to roll.
