GOP debate: Donald Trump defends ‘Islam hates us’ stance
MIAMI -- Donald Trump defended his claim that "Islam hates us" during the Republican debate Thursday night. The GOP front-runner stirred up fresh controversy this week when he said in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, "I think Islam hates us." He claimed that there was "tremendous hatred" that in part defined the religion, and that while the United States was currently fighting radical Islam, "it's very hard to define. It's very hard to separate. Because you don't know who's who."
