Glenn Beck defends Muslims in wake of new travel ban
Former Fox News firebrand Glenn Beck said of President Trump's newly revised travel ban that he agrees that an Islamist threat exists, but he criticized the White House, Congress and the media for failing to explain the difference between Islamists and Muslims.
In an interview with Alex Wagner on CBSN Thursday, Beck, a prominent never-Trumper who supported Ted Cruz's presidential candidacy, said that the vast majority of Muslims in America are "no different than Catholics or Mormons." An Islamist, on the other hand, believes "that the Koran supercedes the Constitution or any country" and the country must be run by religious rule. He told Wagner that the fallout from failing to differentiate between Islamists and Muslims could have a dangerous cost: "We could see some sort of internment camp situation," he predicted, "if there is a December 7th."
