“There’s an unbelievable hatred of us,” Trump told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.  

When Cooper asked if hate was “in Islam itself,” Trump said: “You’re going to have to figure that out, OK?

“It’s radical, but it's very hard to define; it’s very hard to separate because you don’t know who’s who,” Trump said when asked if there was a war between the West and radical Islam. 

Trump, who has previously called for a temporary ban on non-U.S. Muslims entering the country, said Wednesday, “We can’t allow people coming into this country who have this hatred of the United States.”
