Donald Trump defended his controversial stance on Muslims and immigrants during the Fox Business debate on Jan. 14, while the other GOP candidates refused to support his views.
Trump was asked by moderators if he wanted to rethink his position, prompting him to stand by what he’d previously said.
“We have to stop with political correctness," he said, according to The Hill. "We have to get down to creating a country that doesn't have the kind of problems that we've had with people flying planes into the World Trade Center, with the shootings in California.
“ ... We can't be the stupid country anymore."
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush immediately rejected the real estate mogul’s claims.
“This policy is a policy that is impossible to build the coalition necessary to take out ISIS,” he said. “The other Arab countries have a role to play in this."
Though Bush has called Trump “unhinged,” he clarified that he didn’t see Trump’s supporters the same way when asked by moderator Neil Cavuto.
“No, not at all," he said. "I can see why people are angry and scared, because this president has created a condition where our national security has weakened dramatically. I totally get that."
