I saw Donald Trump's speech Monday on TV. Again, he advocates banning all Muslims from the United States. And yet for the last two weeks the news media has been talking non-stop about Muhammed Ali and how great of a man he was — yet he was a Muslim!

Trump needs to get his facts together! There are radical people in all religions! In fact, our country was formed on immigrants of all races and nationalities.

There are many radical Muslims who were born and raised here in the United States, like the young man who just killed so many people in Orlando.

So, Mr. Trump, what is your plan for radicals already on our shores? It seems to me you are all talk with no actual plan.

I grew up in the South with the Ku Klux Klan around. They are about as radical as people come! Are you going to get rid of the KKK as well?

So you're going to round up all the immigrants and ship them back to where they came from? That will leave only white men like yourself. I think I’d rather go with the immigrants myself!
