Yahoo News interviewed GOP front-runner Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka this week. Among other things, Trump discussed his plans for responding to terrorism by targeting America’s 3 million Muslim Americans.

“We’re going to have to do things that we never did before. And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule,” said Trump. “And certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy. And so we’re going to have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”

Yahoo News asked if this meant requiring Muslim Americans to register with the government and carry special identification.

“We’re going to have to — we’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” he replied. “We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”

Earlier, Trump suggested outright shutting down some American mosques, something that would clearly be unconstitutional.
