The other contentious issues concerning Donald Trump is that he has portrayed a negative attitude towards the Muslim community. As known to the whole world, the major wars and unrest has always resulted from the religious differences and so trying to suggest force as a method of solving the major challenges facing the united states is like a spark on a petroleum well.
