“I think Islam hates us,” said Donald Trump, 24 hours before the Republican presidential debate in Miami and four days after losing two key states to GOP rival, Ted Cruz.

Trump’s declaration was neither rhetorically novel or substantively different from his string of campaign slanders on Islam. The very idea that a religion could hate a people is a preposterous statement. But, the statement is rooted in the very ignorance and hate that sprung Trump’s Muslim ban proposal, which made him the darling of bigots and surged him up the polls.

Islamophobia – the suspicion and fear of Islam and its 1.7 billion adherents – is less a political ideology for Trump, but a carefully constructed and tactfully deployed campaign strategy.

DONALD Trump insists no one has more respect for women than he does, just days after a mudslinging match between the republican candidates over their wives.

Mr Trump’s record with women has already been a problem for his campaign, with viral anti-Trump ads quoting statements he’d made on women.

He first came under fire on the campaign trail in August when he responded to Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s accusation that he’d “called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,” by replying “only Rosie O’Donnell”.
