WASHINGTON D.C. -- Donald Trump is “calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States, until our countries representatives can figure out what the hell is going on."

Trump says he's basing the plan on an online survey by the Center for Security Policy which claims a quarter of Muslims living in the U.S. believe violence against Americans is justified. He also points to a Pew research poll. That said, the campaign has not identified the pew data and the other poll has been questioned for its reliability.

It's all making the GOP candidate even more polarizing. Some folks love him and others, including other candidates, say he’s dangerous.

“Tell Donald Trump to go to hell," says Senator Lindsey Graham.

“Donald Trump always plays on everyone's worst instincts and fears, and saying we're not going to let a single Muslim into this country is a dangerous overreaction," says Carly Fiorina.
