Trump’s Muslim database comments prompt Nazi comparisons

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump confirmed his support for a database to track American Muslims.
Asked about a statement earlier in the week that he was open to the idea, Trump confirmed Thursday night that he would move to require Muslims to register with the government if he were elected.
“I would certainly implement that. Absolutely,” Trump told NBC News in between campaign stops in Iowa.
“There should be a lot of systems beyond databases,” he added. “We should have a lot of systems.”
Asked how his system would differ from what the Nazis did to the Jews, Trump said repeatedly: “You tell me.”
