Trump On Obama’s Mosque Visit: ‘Maybe He Feels Comfortable There’

February 4, 2016 7:39 a.m.

Donald Trump on Wednesday briefly discussed President Obama’s trip to a mosque, noting that the President chose to visit a mosque when “there are a lot of places he can go.”

During an interview on Fox News’ “On The Record,” host Greta Van Susteren asked for Trump’s thoughts on Obama’s trip, where the President condemned “inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslim-Americans.”

“I don’t have much thought,” Trump responded. “I think that we can go to lots of places right now, I don’t know if he’s — maybe he feels comfortable there.”

“We have a lot of problems in this country,” he continued. “There are a lot of places he can go, and he chose a mosque.”

The Republican presidential candidate then said, “That’s his decision. That’s fine.”
