‘I think Islam hates us': A timeline of Trump's comments about Islam and Muslims

Sept. 17, 2015: At a campaign town hall in New Hampshire, a man in the audience shouted out: "We have a problem in this country; it's called Muslims. We know our current president is one." The man mentioned Muslim "training camps" and asked: "When can we get rid of them?" Trump responded: "We're going to be looking at a lot of different things. You know, a lot of people are saying that, and a lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there. We're going to be looking at that and plenty of other things."

Oct. 21, 2015: On Fox Business, Trump says he would "certainly look at" the idea of closing mosques in the United States.

Nov. 20, 2015: In comments to Yahoo and NBC News, Trump seemed open to the idea of creating a database of all Muslims in the United States. Later, he and his aides would not rule out the idea.

Dec. 7, 2015: Trump's campaign issued a statement saying: "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on." Trump read this statement aloud at a rally in South Carolina.

Dec. 8, 2015: On CNN, Trump quoted a widely debunked poll by an anti-Islam activist organization that claimed that a quarter of the Muslims living in the United States agreed that violence against Americans is justified as part of the global jihad. "We have people out there that want to do great destruction to our country, whether it's 25 percent or 10 percent or 5 percent, it's too much," Trump said.

Dec. 13, 2015: On Fox News, Trump was asked if his ban would apply to a Canadian businessman who is a Muslim. Trump responded: "There's a sickness. They're sick people. There's a sickness going on. There's a group of people that is very sick."

Jan. 12, 2016: At a rally in Iowa, Trump shared his suspicions about Syrian refugees and then read the lyrics to Al Wilson's 1968 song "The Snake," the story of a "tender woman" who nursed a sickly snake back to health but then was attacked by the snake. Trump often read these lyrics at rallies.

Feb. 3, 2016: Trump criticized Obama for visiting a mosque in Baltimore and said on Fox News: "Maybe he feels comfortable there ... There are a lot of places he can go, and he chose a mosque." (It was Obama's first visit to a mosque during his presidency, and it was made in an effort to encourage religious tolerance in light of growing anti-Muslim sentiment.)

March 9, 2016: On CNN, Trump said: "I think Islam hates us. There's something there that -- there's a tremendous hatred there. There's a tremendous hatred. We have to get to the bottom of it. There's an unbelievable hatred of us."

March 22, 2016: Soon after three suicide bombings in Brussels tied to a group of French and Belgian Muslims, Trump told Fox Business: "We're having problems with the Muslims, and we're having problems with Muslims coming into the country." Trump called for surveillance of mosques in the United States, saying: "You have to deal with the mosques, whether we like it or not, I mean, you know, these attacks aren't coming out of -- they're not done by Swedish people."

On NBC News, Trump added: "This all happened because, frankly, there's no assimilation. They are not assimilating ... They want to go by sharia law. They want sharia law. They don't want the laws that we have. They want sharia law."

This type of stuff happened all the time before national news was 24/7.

Omg... as a meteorologist the hype of perfectly normal storms, and using normal terms like bombogenesis as scare tactics by the national media is really disheartening.

#11 | POSTED BY KWRX25

Meteorologists are describing the storm as what it is - unusual and record breaking. This isn't just another winter storm.

An explosively intensifying winter storm centered over the Colorado Front Range continues to unleash a potpourri of extreme weather across the Plains states and Upper Midwest. The hurricane-force low has combined the worst weather of all four seasons into one -- from a string of violent tornadic thunderstorms to damaging winds, severe blizzard conditions and even flooding.

It's a storm for the record books, strengthening from a run-of-the-mill weather disturbance into a historic cyclone in just 24 hours. Its central pressure dropped 33 millibars from Tuesday to Wednesday, meeting the criteria of a meteorological "bomb." The storm made this transformation over land, rather than water, which is rare.

The National Weather Service described it as "incredible" and a "Great Plains cyclone of historic proportions."

On Wednesday morning, the storm's pressure had dropped to the equivalent of a Category 2 hurricane. Hurricane-force gusts hit both Dallas (78 mph) and Denver (80 mph), which was also enduring blinding snow. A storm this extreme was triggering extreme impacts, which are predicted to intensify into Wednesday night.

Cold air surging down from Canada into the backside of the system is leading to a "dangerous" blizzard from northeast Colorado to northwest Minnesota. Blizzard warnings stretch nearly 800 miles.

The clash of seasons has been dramatic in a number of spots, but few more so than Denver. Now under the blizzard warning, the Mile High City hit 62 degrees Tuesday before plummeting below freezing Wednesday morning as rain transitioned to heavy snow.
