THEY LIED! Media Edited Video to Claim Donald Trump Said to Register All Muslims (Video)

The mainstream media went into overdrive today reporting that Donald Trump said to register all Muslims in the United States during a campaign stop in Iowa.

trump video

CNN ran this clip (transcribed):

Reporter: … Should there be database system that tracks Muslims in this country?

Donald Trump: There should be a lot of systems beyond a database. We should have a lot of systems and today you can do it.

Reporter: But is it something your White House would…

Donald Trump: Well, I would certainly implement that. Absolutely.

Reporter: …How would you actually get them registered in that?

Donald Trump: It would be just good management.

Of course, the left is comparing his comments to the Nazi regime.

Here is the video clip:

But as Rush Limbaugh pointed out, the video from Iowa was edited by the liberal media. They cut out half of the conversation to change the narrative!

RUSH: Now, I don’t know if you have seen it yet today. There are stories all over the Drive-By Media — the Associated Press, Yahoo News, I mean, it’s everywhere — that Donald Trump supposedly is calling for the registration of all Muslims in America. Trump is demanding that they all be registered and that a massive database be collected. CNN is all over reporting this. Even the Wall Street Journal has picked up on it. There’s a problem, though: Trump didn’t say it. I’m gonna tell you what happened. At a recent public appearance Trump’s coming off the stage after one of his usual one hour to 90-minute appearances.

He’s probably worn out and spent, and there’s the usual crowd of autograph seekers and supporters and fans, and amongst them is a Drive-By Media reporter who says to Trump, “Should there be a database system that tracks the Muslims that are in this country?” Trump says, “There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems, and today you can do it. But right now we have to have a border. We have to have strength, we have to have a wall, and we cannot let what’s happening to this country happen again.” Reporter: “Is that something your White House would like to implement?”

There’s no specificity there. The question is just, “Is that something your White House would like to implement?” Trump has given a multifaceted answer. He says, “Is that something,” without specifying what he’s asking about. Trump said, “Oh, I would certainly implement that, absolutely,” and that’s how they report that Trump “demands a database and registration for all Muslims,” when he didn’t say it! He never said it. It’s a Journalism 101 trick. It’s right out of the manual they teach you at the first year of journalism school in how to destroy political opponents or powerful people you don’t like. It’s that common a technique.

What a surprise.

    Trump needs his own full time videographer recording every second of every interview – including the duplicitous interviewers. Then he can “out” the lying bastards.

    I believed the Donald anyway now i hope. He rises higher in all polls and sues their King o lmuslim loving asses! Trump trump trump trump-trump!

  • Patty

    D right, you scum of the earth media. And we also need to manage the bias Media, too.
    They ask questions that will try to hurt, Trump, it happens constantly and they need to be held accountable for their lies, insults and pretense.
    It is disgusting to see how they cover up the lies of the democrats. And keep on pursuing the right trying to catch them in something they can spin for year. Real reporting has seem to go the way of the dinosaur. All the media is now are liars and they cannot be trusted.

    I would like to see the raw video before weighing in. Both scenarios based on past performance of Trump and the media seem very likely

  • DANEgerus

    Liberals earned the “Right” to edit videos because they have been so ‘Wronged’ in the past claiming everytime they get caught telling the truth the video was “edited”

    In Poll After Poll Trump Beats Clinton – And That Scares The Hell Out of GOPe Globalists…

    The latest fear mongering approach from the Globalist GOPe advocates (progressive republicans) is to claim they need to attack Donald Trump because he cannot beat Hillary Clinton. This claim is a total sham intended to hide their ulterior motives and here’s why.

    First to the substance of the claims – In poll after poll of head-to-head match-ups Donald Trump clearly beats Hillary here are recent examples: Continue reading →

  • DeleteWhenDone

    Both political parties and the DC bureaucratic elites, in short the entire conglomerate that is The Ruling Class wants to destroy or at least sideline Trump by any available means.
    Trump is not owned by anyone, that alone makes him very dangerous.
    He does not play well with others, another red flag to them.
    Maybe by next October our “rulers” will finally come close to figuring out that they can not destroy something they have no control over. The people vest Trump with his power, and the elites have no way to throttle that.
    They are just going to have to learn to love it.

    No wonder the low information Democrat voters believe liberals when they say that O’Keefe’s videos are “heavily edited”. THEY do it so they easily believe others do. The willfully blind are another matter.

  • Joey001

    Of course Trump’s solution is bigger/more gov! If a group is bad enough to warrant a their own special database, them “round-en-up” ad deport them! I am 100% good with REMOVING every last Muslim in this country, but another gov database … is NOT the answer! Watch out folks, Trump loves BIG GOV!

    You are an idiot.

  • miriam

    For goodness sake we are all in a Database, why not muslims. We are in the Internal Revenue Service database, Social Security database, Medicare. They all know where you are, folks. Even my 2 year great grandaughter had to be registered prior to leaving the hospital after birth. They want to make it look as if Donald Trump is the evil one. He could never hold a candle to Lois Lerner and Mr. Kos klinen who both let the world know know they have no integrity at all. Yet they ran the most sensitive data base of all. I wouldn’t worry too much about registering immigrants, thank you very much.

  • Finncrisp

    Slime ball reporters. They are out in force to stop Donald at all costs.

  • Cavalor Eptith

    The media has not realized that we recognize them as liars first. Trump has called them out on it and now the predictable retaliation is underway. Every time one of them slanders him, he nukes them. He gains popularity, and his supporters become more energized.
    They cannot let themselves believe that he is smart, he and his team are smarter than the media puppets, and its nor even close.

  • gregzotta

    Hussein Obama, Killary Clinton, many other DemonRATS
    and the so-called Mainstream Media are upset with Donald Trump regarding Muslims
    and a database. Even though this reporter fabricated the story to attack Trump’s
    positions on immigration. It is the DemonRATS who have been pushing for a national firearms registry, (a
    database) but let’s see what databases are already in place. Obamacare
    creates a huge database with Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
    collection. Then there is the IRS, who has a database on the people and the
    Obama Regime used it to attack Tea Party members. There are credit file
    databases on all of the people. There is the Prescription Drug Monitoring
    Programs PDMPs established in all 49 states, except Missouri. There is an HIV/AIDS
    Surveillance Data Base. The NSA has a database on the people. Regarding
    immigration there is a database tracking immigrants with student or work, Visa’s.
    As for the migrants, according to members of the Obama regime they are tracked
    for the first 90 days after being let into the country. So, database are with
    us whether we like it or not. This is fake outrage from these DemonRAT complainers.

  • freeinaz

    The media is doing its’ best to bring down Trump and Carson. They’re finding it more difficult with Trump than Carson, only because Trump has more experience in front of the cameras than Carson. Trump also won’t hesitate to attack them back where Carson will, but tries to be too nice about it.
    Basically, the media is corrupt.Thankfully the internet exists where they can’t get away with their usual bullcrap.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” ~Joseph Goebbels

    Do not forget that Romney was a murderer and never paid taxes. This new hoax should be good for 5% increase.

  • Buckeye1

    Trump should immediately file a lawsuit and hire background investigators to look deeply into each and very ‘journalist’ that does this. He should then release the dirt he finds and, if it possible with journalists, embarrass them publicly

    Sue them into the poor house and slam them for being the hacks they are..

    Are these guys the teachers of obungles news media? Seems like with the amount of lying they do you would think so.

    The story isn’t very long, about half a page and you couldn’t find the time to read it?
    Better go back to standing behind Hillary at her speeches and mindlessly applauding the Marxist Godfather.

    The MSM, DNC, RNC and CoC are all-in to try to prevent Trump from winning.

    Can anyone think of a better reference for him?

    Because they were so successful in smearing George Zimmerman by altering and lying about what he said, and NOBODY suffered any they do the same to Trump.

    Hope he makes them suffer consequences..we are sick of the lies and distortions from the leftist media.

  • DeleteWhenDone

    What they have apparently missed about Trump is the harder you push him the harder he fights back. He is anything but a coward.
    They are used to attacking the political specimens inhabiting the beltway. The republicans will run and hide hide when the light is shown upon them. They are, as they have proven over the past two years save a very few, totally gutless cowards. Throw the RNC in there too. They remind me of Brave Sir Robin in the Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie. Brave Sir Robin always ran away.
    Trump is the antithesis of your average republican.
    Trump feeds off of the challenge, and is always ready for battle.
    That is why that little jerk Priebus had to appear in Trump’s office at Trump Tower on his carpet in order to get his signature on his promise not to bolt from the party. Talk about being owned, Trump owns that little jerk.
    Little do those idiots know, Trump Is the Fifth Column.
    Their worst nightmare.

    Trump needs to hire someone to follow him around and record/film EVERY interaction with the press. He should announce with great fanfare his plan and let the press know that THEY will be reported on. See how they like the spotlight!

  • Land Shark

    And the Michigan Governor has no say or authority to stop it. How’s that going to work again?

  • Land Shark

    Too bad your “MSM” is owned by Rupert Murdoch. A real liberal that one.

  • Buckeye1

    Nah…. Trump does very well for himself.
    Muslims should be listed….. then deported

  • Land Shark

    To where exactly? Which Muslims? Why not Catholics (like Timothy McVeigh), too?

  • Buckeye1

    Muslims as a whole do mass murders almost daily some whee in the EU and other western nations. Trump told the story, that I also remember, of Muslim cheering 9/11.

    It is a matter of numbers. Tim McVeigh was only one and received his reward, Muslims on the other hand are bloodthirsty savages that need to return back to the mid east so they can slaughter themselves until none are left, at that point there will be peace.

    Nice try but there is NO MORAL EQUIVALENCE to Catholics and Muslims,

  • Land Shark

    Except the Crusades and the Inquisitions, of course. Non-believers and non-Catholics were murdered as heretics or apostates. Does sound the same, does it not?

    And should we deport the 3rd or 4th generation American citizens who are Muslims as well?

  • Buckeye1

    The middle ages were some 800 years ago, oh yeah that’s relevant to today’s issues with islam… not. What is interesting is muslims are wanting to return to the middle ages with their filthy religion invented by a pedophile wacko.
    If it makes you feel better call me a bigot, I will wear your name calling as a badge of honor because defending muslims and their vile religion is something I refuse to do regardless of circumstances.
    Just the muslims that have been imported since 9/11, the others just kept on a list. That would be a nice start

  • Land Shark

    As usual, any inconvenient truth is brushed aside. You condemn one religion as filthy terrorists but ignore the history of another.

    The middle ages were some 800 years ago, oh yeah that’s relevant to today’s issues with islam… not.

    Today’s issue with terrorists is the same as it was 800 years ago with Catholics and the Crusades. A small portion of the members of a religion proceed to declare holy war on someone because their religion is the one true one. Yes, it is the exact same story. And yes, the average Catholic was not a killer.

    So, is your religion better than Islam? Is it cleaner? Does it not have terrorists or criminals or evil members?

    So I can condemn YOUR WHOLE RELIGION because there are criminals, terrorists or bad people? It doesn’t matter what your religion is, I can condemn every member because the activity of a few.

  • Land Shark

    Since you seem to be incapable of relating history and using logic, here’s a simple question:

    How much will is cost in tax dollars to create the Muslim database in the US and then deport them? There are anywhere between 2.5 and 7 million Muslims in the US today. You are allowed to use a calculator and you must show your work.

  • Buckeye1

    How many innocent Americans will die by muslims before you get your head out of your a$$

  • Buckeye1

    When Christians start burning ppl alive and cutting their heads off in public with no resistance from those within their sect, then I may consider your opinion.
    Unfortunately you have not read or do you care to understand the crusades. What we need again is another crusade to get the islamic slime off our continent.
    You can condemn whatever you want, but you can’t argue with the fact that islam and muslims are blood sucking murderers, child rapists and thieves. Islam has nothing to do with peace or religion as a matter of fact.
    Regardless, useful idiots like you allow the spread of this cancer under some type of warped guilt or moral equivalence.
    Islam and it’s pedophile profit express true evil and madness.

  • Land Shark

    I’m done. As you are unwilling to answer any questions, you obviously have no method of rational thinking. I have not called you any names nor denigrated your opinions. And yet you still will not respond to any points that don’t agree with your very narrow worldview.

    Good luck, and remember: more Americans, and many children as well, are dead this year by the hand of Americans than any terrorist group. I hope you enjoy living in paranoid fear …. I do not. Nor will I condemn a whole religion because fanatics have co-opted it.

    Ignorant evil knows no faith, it only knows evil and hatred.

  • Land Shark

    The Crusades were undertaken to conquer/return the Holy Land to the Catholic Church.

    What we need again is another crusade to get the islamic slime off our continent.
