Donald Trump thinks racially profiling Muslims is a good idea, according to an interview with CBS’ John Dickerson on Face the Nation Sunday.
“I think profiling is something that we’re going to have to start thinking about as a country,” Trump explained. Dickerson had asked the presumptive GOP nominee whether he still supported the controversial tactic, which he’d suggested during another Face the Nation interview in December.
Profiling, for those who don’t know, means targeting people for suspicion of crime based on the individual’s race, ethnicity, religion or nationality, according to the ACLU.
“You know, I hate the concept of profiling,” Trump added. “But we have to start using common sense, and we have to use, you know, we have to use our heads … we really have to look at profiling. We have to look at it seriously.”
