Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has said he would be open to having a “Muslim database” in the US in the wake of the Paris attacks.
Mr Trump said in an interview with Yahoo Politics that he would consider “drastic measures” for monitoring the community.
Asked if that may include registering Muslims in a database or using special ID cards, he did not rule it out.
“We’re going to have to do things we never did before,” said Mr Trump, a frontrunner in the Republican race for the White House.
“And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling security is going to rule.”
He told Yahoo Politics certain things would have to be done “that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy”.
