Trump backers baffled by criticism of his Muslim proposal

GREER, South Carolina (AP) — Donald Trump supporter Tracy Hooker isn't interested in debating the merits of his proposal to temporarily block Muslims from coming into the United States.

She knows some people think it's bigoted, and that others argue it's impractical, legally dubious or both.

That's why she says the GOP candidate for president is "my guy." She says he's the only one who gets it.

To Hooker and the dozens of Trump supporters interviewed in the past week by The Associated Press, the near universal condemnation of the billionaire's plan is simply baffling.

In the wake of the attacks in Paris and shootings in San Bernardino, they say only Trump is taking on what they believe is a clear and present danger to America and its citizens.
