As he has done several times in recent months, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump cites Israel as his example for the success of “profiling” in the prevention of terror attacks.
“Our local police, they know who a lot of these people are,” he tells Fox News. “They’re afraid to do anything about it because they don’t want to be accused of profiling.
“You know,” he continues, “in Israel, they profile. They’ve done an unbelievable job, as good as you can do… They profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious, they will profile.”
He says Americans are reluctant to follow Israel’s example due to political correctness, “and this is only going to get worse.”
