Donald Trump said Monday that authorities might have to engage in racial profiling to more effectively fight the threat of terrorist attacks in the United States.
"Our local police, they know who a lot of these people are. They are afraid to do anything about it because they don't want to be accused of, uh, profiling. And they don't want to be accused of all sorts of things," Trump said in an interview on Fox News.
The Republican presidential nominee went on to praise Israel's policing practices. Israeli security forces routinely conduct general roundups for questioning or during specific investigations.
"You know in Israel, they profile," Trump said. "They've done an unbelievable job - as good as you can do. But Israel has done an unbelievable job. And they'll profile. They profile. They see somebody that's suspicious. They will profile. They will take that person in. They will check out."
