The Delusional Donald

As of yesterday, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump escalated his drip-drip-drip war of words against America's Muslims by proposing a new policy that would not only ban all further Muslim immigration to this country, but would also prevent any American Muslims who happen to be overseas from returning home. This ignorance and idiocy moves Trump past the punchline he's been and become something far more dangerous. With every venomous soundbite about and against Muslims, his polling only solidifies with his particular base, and there are real consequences being suffered by the American Muslim community as a result. A new piece by Arsalan Iftekhar at The Atlantic gives a timeline of Trump's rapidly escalating anti-Muslim rhetoric, and asks how far he'll go.
