Trump on His Islam-Hates-America Comment: ‘I Will Stick with Exactly What I Said’

Tonight Donald Trump declined the opportunity to walk back his comments yesterday that “Islam hates us.”

“Did you mean all 1.6 billion Muslims?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked.  

“I mean a lot of them, I mean a lot of them,” Trump replied.

“Do you want to clarify the comment at all?” 

Trump said that while he’s been monitoring the controversy his comments created, ”I will stick with exactly what I said.”
