Trump and Religion

Trump Religion: Protestant Christian / Presbyterian

Donald Trump on Islam

Trump has indicated that there exists a “problem” concerning Muslims in the world. He has observed on numerous occasions that it was not “people from Sweden” who perpetrated 9/11. He has been criticized for neglecting to correct a supporter at a campaign rally who made derogatory remarks about Muslims.

Jake Tapper: “And Mr Trump, forget the notion of defending President Obama for a second; I don't want to really talk about that. You are running to be President of the United States of America. That includes millions of peaceful, law-abiding Muslim American citizens who love this country. This man said, quote, 'we have a problem in this country; it's called Muslims.' Now, you are not responsible for what he says, but this is raw, unvarnished, ignorant bigotry. You are a leader. You're the frontrunner in the Republican race. Do you not have a responsibility to call out comments that are ignorant?”

Donald Trump: “Well you know we can be politically correct if you want, but certainly – are you trying to say we don't have a problem? Because I think everybody would agree, I have friends that are Muslims, they're great people, amazing people, and most Muslims like most everything – I mean these are fabulous people. But we certainly do have a problem. I mean, you have a problem throughout the world.”

Tapper: “What's the problem?”

Trump: “Well, you have radicals that are doing things. I mean it wasn't people from Sweden that blew up the World Trade Center, Jake.”

Clinton and Religion

Clinton Religion: Methodist

Hillary Clinton on Islam

Clinton has unequivocally stated that Islam is comprised of peaceful adherents, the vast majority of whom have no connection to terrorism.

Hillary Clinton: “The bottom line is that we are in a contest of ideas against an ideology of hate, and we have to win. Let’s be clear, though: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people, and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism. The obsession in some quarters with a clash of civilization, or repeating the specific words 'radical Islamic terrorism' isn’t just a distraction; it gives these criminals, these murderers more standing than they deserve. It actually plays into their hands by alienating partners we need by our side.”
