Joy Reid: Trump’s ‘Radicalizing’ His Supporters in the Same Way ‘Muslims’ Do

‘That’s how we talk about how Muslims act’


REID: “You know, when leaders — let’s say in the Muslim world, talk a lot of violent talk and encourage their supporters to be willing to commit violence, including on their own bodies, in order to win against whoever they decide is the enemy, we in the U.S. media describe that as they are radicalizing those people, particularly when they’re radicalizing young people. That’s how we talk about they way Muslims act. When you see what Donald Trump is doing, is that any different from what we describe as radicalizing people?”
