“Donald Trump is an extremist leader who came out of nowhere,” said Hasan Minhaj, senior political correspondent for Noah’s “The Daily Show.”
“He’s self-financed, recruits on social media, attracts his followers with a radical ideology to take over the world and is actively trying to promote a war between Islam and the West,” Minhaj told the “Comedy Central” host.
“Oh my God, Hassan — he’s white ISIS,” Noah responded.
“That’s right Trevor, Donald Trump is white ISIS — WHISIS,” Minhaj said.
Minhaj criticized Trump’s call earlier this week for a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the U.S.
“Where are all the moderate white conservatives?” asked Minhaj, who practices Islam.
“They have a responsibility to stand up and speak out against WHISIS. I’m sick of it, and I just don’t feel safe.
Minhaj advised that fellow Muslims should avoid visiting America while Trump remains the GOP’s presidential front-runner.
“Muslims should not be allowed into this country — it’s just not safe,” he said. "I think Trump’s 100 percent right here.
“One third of a major political party in America is backing a racist maniac. This place is scary right now.”
Trump sparked an uproar on Monday by proposing a temporary freeze on admitting Muslims within American borders. He said the policy is necessary for preventing the spread of Islamic terrorists such as ISIS.
Democrats and Republicans alike have condemned the idea as impractical and unconstitutional.
