Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that 27 percent of Muslims were “very militant.”

Trump’s comments come after he said last week that Islam “hates us.”

“I mean, I could be corrected, it’s whatever it is it is — but it’s something like 27 percent are, you know, really very militant about going after things,” Trump said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“And you’ll have to look at it. They did a very strong study,” Trump continued. “And let’s see what it says. But it’s a very significant number. It’s not 100,000 people, I can tell you that. It’s a ridiculous number.”
