Newt Gingrich Wants Tests for All U.S. Muslims After Nice Attack
Still hoping for the VP slot?
Newt Gingrich, the former Speaker of the House who had been muted as a potential Trump running mate, took his GOP colleague's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. a step further in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity.
"Every person here who is of a Muslim background" should be tested to determine whether he or she believes in Shariah, a legal code based on the Quran and other Islamic scriptures.
If they do, he said, they should be deported — even if they're U.S. citizens.
Gingrich added that anyone who simply visits any website "favoring ISIS or al Qaeda or other terrorist groups" should be guilty of a felony, "and they should go to jail."
