Donald Trump condemned Muslims today for failing to report suspicious activity within their own communities – insisting they must do more to help prevent attacks such as those in Belgium.
The US Republican presidential candidate said it was ‘a disgrace’ that a suspect behind last year’s Paris attacks had been found after a long manhunt by police in an area of Brussels where he lived.
Mr Trump, who wants a ban on Muslims entering the US, condemned the ‘outrageous’ attacks on the Brussels airport and metro yesterday and said he would ‘hit ISIS so hard you wouldn’t believe it’.
But Britain’s Home Secretary Theresa May hit back this afternoon, declaring that Mr Trump was ‘absolutely plain wrong’ to blame Muslims for failing to report extremists.
Ms May said police must work with Muslim communities – as they do in Britain – to ‘ensure that everything we do is about uniting our communities and not about dividing them’.
When he made his controversial pledge to ban Muslims from the US in December Mr Trump caused uproar in Britain by claiming that parts of London were so radicalised that they were ‘no-go areas’ for police because they were ‘scared for their lives’.
Speaking to DailyMail.com U.S. Editor-at-Large Piers Morgan onITV’s Good Morning Britain, Mr Trump said: ‘When they see trouble they have to report it, they are not reporting it, they are absolutely not reporting it and that’s a big problem.’

US presidential candidate Donald Trump is absolutely right to demand much tougher action against the causes of Islamist terror on the streets of Europe. And discredited Establishment politicians such as Theresa May, on whose watch this problem was allowed to fester and grow within the body politic, have no solution but to continue to appease the ever increasing demands of Muslim advocacy groups, themselves funded by public money.
