"America isn't ready for a Muslim president": Chris Hayes discusses Carson's anti-Muslim sentiment
Should a president's faith matter?
September 22, 2015 5:42PM (UTC)
Amid the uproar that ensued when Donald Trump failed to interrupt an anti-Muslim questioner at his recent event,
Ben Carson was asked whether he believes a president's faith should matter. "It depends on what that faith is. If it's inconsistent with the principles of America, then of course it should matter," Carson answered. "Islam is not consistent with the Constitution."
In defense of Carson,
his business manager Armstrong Williams argued that Carson is "not a politician" and "not trying to be politically correct." Williams went on to say that Carson's simply believes in telling the truth.
Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have publicly condemned both Trump's and Carson anti-Muslim sentiment.
The Counsel on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has even called for Carson to drop out of the race.
