GOP candidate Donald Trump is known for making outlandish remarks, especially when it comes to race and religion in our country. Just this week, Trump said there should be a database that keeps track of Muslims within our country. “There should be a lot of systems, beyond databases,” he told NBC News yesterday. “I would certainly implement that, absolutely.” During another interview, he said he would go to extreme measures to monitor those of Islamic faith, even if it means going as far as conducting searches without warrants.

Lebanese officials arrested several people last night in relation to two suicide bombings that took the lives of 44 people last week in Beirut. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack. The bombings are just the latest violent act in relation to the Syrian civil war.
