Donald Trump: Well, I’ve been watching the debate today and we’re talking about radical Islamic terrorism or radical Islam. But I will tell you, there’s something going on that maybe you don’t know about, or maybe a lot of other people don’t know about but there’s tremendous hatred and I will stick with exactly what I said to Anderson Cooper.
