Can you put a number on how many people 'large swathes' consists of?
Certainly a significant portion of the millions who voted the current trash into the White House. It was part of his platform to discriminate against Muslims.
“calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”
Not a number, but OK.
While I'm not one to deny the abuse and discrimination Muslims in the USA receive, especially post 9/11, I think you're overestimating it a little.
Also I'm not sure you know this, but your president does talk a load of bollocks.
I apologize that I can only cite examples and not numbers.
Also, the the combination of right-wing media hatred for Obama and right-wing media hatred for Muslims and right-wing media hatred for Latinos has given rise to a president elected by a minority of Americans and given power to groups like KKK and neo-Nazis. These snowflake groups are so butt hurt they have protests against them, they got the political leadership to give the opposition a name (antifa) and declare those counter protesters as terrorists.
