The Second Presidential Debate was held in Washington University in St. Louis on October 9 2016. Where Hillary Clinton faced and Donald Trump faced off once more, discussing the future of the this nation. During this debate there were a lot of memorable parts. One example, the topic of Islamophobia.

In the topic of Islamophobia, the question was asked by an undecided voter, “how will you help people like me deal with the consequences of being labeled as a threat to the country after the election is over?”

Donald Trump was first to answer this question in which he started by saying, “You’re right about Islamophobia and that’s a shame.”

Many viewers said Trump isn’t just going after Islamic terrorists, but he’s also blaming the entire Muslim community for failing to identify the acts of terrorism and not reporting them to the authorities.

“And you know there’s always a reason for everything. If they don’t do that, it’s a very difficult situation for our country.” “Muslims have to report the problems when they see them,” Trump stated.

Hillary and her supporters immediately pointed out the hypocrisy, since Trump earlier prose to ban the Muslim community from coming to the U.S. One the other hand, Hillary wants to bring Muslim refugees from the war zone like women and children for example. Giving the second chance, If she were to get elected, Hillary said she will resettle Islamic migrants.
