But according to Mark Steyn,Trump’s stance is more reasonable than that of the Obama administration.
This is where the president and the secretary of state and others are so absolutely deplorable. By absolving the whole of Islam, there is no pressure on moderate Muslims to take action against this poison in their own world. And the fact is, to most American people, Trump sounds a lot less insane about this than John Kerry standing up in Paris as they’re still washing the streets clean of blood saying, “This is nothing to do with Islam.” Trump isn’t the one who sounds as nutty as John Kerry.
Steyn then addressed a much bigger Muslim immigrant issue.

So we have a situation where the Muslim world is increasingly closed, increasingly intolerant – far more than it was 50 years ago – and yet we invite people who have grown up in that atmosphere and expect them to be able to assimilate into the United States, Canada, Britain, Europe and the rest. And the evidence is that across two or three generations, is that there are real assimilation problems.
