Donald Trump on Sunday doubled down on last week's controversial comments about Muslims. 

Trump, the front runner for the 2016 Republican nomination, was asked on CNN's State of the Union about his campaign rally in New Hampshire on Thursday. At the event, an audience member said President Barack Obama was a Muslim, that the U.S. has a problem with Muslims, and asked "when can we get rid of them?" At Thursday's event and again on CNN, Trump did not criticize or correct the question.
