Donald Trump and his stances on the so-called War on Terror has been a backdrop for the GOP presidential hopeful’s most controversial statements. Trump once more took the path of the sensational by suggesting he would be fine in making Muslims carry a special identification card to signify their religion.

Trump sat down with Yahoo News on Tuesday (Nov. 17) from his Manhattan office, dishing on his White House aims and other topics that crossed his mind. Although the Yahoo profile on Trump has since been scrubbed of his more controversial statements, several outlets reported on the comments the business mogul made.

From The Hill:

“We’re going to have to do thing that we never did before,” he said during a Yahoo interview.

“Some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule,” Trump said.

“Certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy,” he added. “We’re going to have to do things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”

Trump would not rule out warrantless searches in his plans for increased surveillance of the nation’s Muslims, Yahoo reported Thursday.

He also remained open toward registering U.S. Muslims in a database or giving them special identification identifying their faith, the news outlet added.

“We’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” Trump continued. “We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”

Even more interesting was Trump suggesting that he’d hire former NYPD commissioner Raymond Kelly to work in his administration.
