Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is dominating the headlines.
His campaign came up with a new plan to combat terrorism in light of the attack in San Bernardino: ban all Muslims from entering the United States.  
Trump stood his ground during an appearance on Good Morning America this morning. Reactions are pouring in from round the world and local Muslims we spoke to say they are worried this may just be the tip of the iceberg. 
"Once you open that door when you start to scrutinize and ostracize people based on their faith where will it end? Will it end with concentration camps for the Muslims here," said local Imam, Fateen Seifullah.
Local Muslims say they understand the frustration after the shooting in San Bernardino, but they don't want the attackers to represent the entire religion.
