THE BRONX - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's recent comments about not letting any Muslims into the United States has angered Muslims in the Bronx.

The chairman of the Islamic Cultural Center of North America says that now is the time for Muslim leaders to let Americans know who they really are.

"Islam can never represent violence," says Sheikh Musa Drammeh. "Ninety-eight percent of Muslims will never have any sympathy towards any group that advocates what these criminals are advocating."

Drammeh says Trump should have been an idol and an example of the American dream to the students at the Al Iman Community Center on Westchester Avenue.

Trump's GOP contenders quickly came out to denounce his proposal, saying it goes against the Constitution.
