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

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.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
