Republican presidential candidate and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told a group of voters in New Hampshire Friday that radical Islamic terrorists are at war with America — including even the “handful” of “reasonable, moderate” followers of Islam, according to the Wisconsin State Journal newspaper.
Walker told voters on the campaign stop that, “it’s a war against even the handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam who don’t share the radical beliefs that these radical Islamic terrorists have,” according to the publication.
When asked to clarify what Walker’s statement meant, his spokeswoman AshLee Strong said, “The governor knows that the majority of ISIS’s victims are Muslims.”
“Muslims who want to live in peace – the majority of Muslims – are the first target of radical Islamic terrorists,” she said, according to the newspaper.
