GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump calls for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims" entering the United States, following the recent mass shooting in California.

In a statement released by his campaign team, the Islamophobic real estate mogul urged a halt to Muslims' entrance to the United States "until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."

How would you describe Donald Trump in light of his recent Islamophobic and racist outbursts?  What institutions do you believe are more to blame for having created an atmosphere of fear and hate: US politicians or US media, and why?   

How dangerous would the world become if Donald Trump were to become the president of the United States?  How likely is it that Donald Trump will be elected US president?  Why isn't the US presidential candidate line-up filled with intelligent, inspirational and diplomatic candidates?
