Donald Trump and the Islamic Community

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has created a firestorm over his call for temporarily banning Muslims from entering the United States. From Republican Congressional leaders to GOP presidential rivals, the denunciations have come fast and furious. As political battle rages, American Muslims look on -- some fearful of what the future may hold. Delmarva Public Radio's Don Rush spoke with Muqtadar Kahn, who teaches at the University of Delaware and is co-founder of the Delaware Council on Global and Muslim Affairs, who says the Republican presidential candidates have been inching their way toward this position.
