Donald Trump defended his comments regarding Muslims Sunday, but said that there are major problems with Muslim extremists.
Trump is under fire for not disagreeing with a supporter who said at a Thursday rally that “we have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims,” and said that President Obama is a Muslim.
In phone interviews on news shows Sunday, Trump sought to thread a needle on the issue, saying that he has Muslim friends, but some Muslims present a “problem.”
He repeatedly declined to specify the problem that Muslims have.
“You can be politically correct if you want, but are you trying to say we don’t have a problem,” Trump told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.”
“Most Muslims, like most everything, I mean, these are fabulous people,” he continued. “But we certainly do have a problem, I mean, you have a problem throughout the world.”
Asked to explain the “problem,” Trump only said, “it wasn’t people from Sweden that blew up the World Trade Center.”
