Trump refuses to say how Muslim ‘databases’ would be different from Nazi IDs for Jews

Published

on

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump would not explain how registering American Muslims in a “database” would be different from the identification Germany’s Nazi regime forced upon Jewish residents, in footage aired on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show on Thursday night.

The footage shows NBC reporter Vaughn Hillyard asking from off-camera, “Why would Muslim databases not be the same thing as requiring Jews to register in Nazi Germany? What would be the difference? Is there a difference between the two?”

After asking Hillyard where he works, Trump refuses to say anything but, “You tell me” before walking away.

“Should Muslims be fearful?” Hillyard asks. “Will there be consequences if they don’t register?”

However, Trump says nothing and continues walking away from the reporter.

The real estate mogul’s reluctance to address the question came after he told Hillyard that he “would certainly implement” such a database against the country’s Muslim population, saying that it would be “good management.” Later, Hillyard said, his campaign staff refused his request to obtain further clarification from Trump regarding his remarks.

Hillyard pursued that line of questioning following Trump’s refusal earlier in the day to discount forcing Muslims to carry specialized identification marking their religion, saying, “Certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy.”

Published

Coronavirus testing in the United States is moving into a new phase as scientists begin looking into people’s blood for signs they’ve been infected by SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. This technique is called serological testing.

Virologist Daniel Stadlbauer helped develop a serological test to detect SARS-CoV-2 antibodies and helped transfer it from the research lab to the clinical setting.
