Trump Criticized Over Tweets About London Attacks

Updated on

“There’s a very real risk that by stigmatizing and isolating Muslims from particular countries, and Muslims in general, that we alienate the very communities here in the United States whose cooperation we most need to detect and prevent these home-grown extremists from being able to carry out attacks,’’ Susan Rice said on ABC’s “This Week’’ on Sunday.
