NEW YORK: While the angry French leader Francios Hollande declared war on Islamic State group (IS) in aftermath of Paris attack, the US Republican front runner Donald Trump wants to begin a battle of his own to gain momentum in his election campaign.

He wants to shutdown mosques in the United States. Trump says he has a plan to counter ‘jihadist’ ideology in America: Tear apart the First Amendment of the American constitution on which this country is founded.

Trump appeared on MS­ NBC’s Morning Joe, where the panel discussed the Fre­nch interior minister’s call for the dissolution of extr­emi­st-linked mosques in France in the wake of last week’s attacks in Paris, host Joe Scarborough then asked if a Trump administration wou­ld consider shutting down mosques in this country.

“I would hate to do it but it would be something that you’re going to have strongly consider because some of the ideas, some of the hatred — absolute hatred — is coming from these areas,” Trump said.
