Why can’t you do it? You can do it here.” Varney asked, “Can you close a mosque? I mean, we do have religious freedom.” “Well I don’t know,” Trump said. “I mean, I haven’t heard about the closing of the mosque. It depends, if the mosque is, you know, loaded for bear, I don’t know. You’re going to have to certainly look at it.” “But I can tell you one thing,” Trump said. “If somebody goes over and they want to fight for ISIS, they wouldn’t be coming back.”
