On Trump, the GOP, and Muslim Refugees

The pursuit of life, liberty, and a culture of religious intolerance.


How much of a menace to society is Donald Trump? With Election Day 2016 still 323 days away, it may be little consolation that this presidential candidate hasn’t yet earned a Republican nomination. Because, as the panelists argue, Trump has done more than enough damage already. More alarming still is that his popularity hasn’t faltered even as he has spouted bigoted would-be policies, particularly against Muslim immigrants. And why, the panelists want to know, in the face of all this fear-mongering, haven’t more U.S. leaders pushed harder in favor of diversity?
