People are asking why people would vote for Donald Trump who quite obviously wouldn't be the best candidate for a president. But at least he intends to keep "the Muslims" out of the country, which would clearly get him many supporters over someone who's still in favor of letting "the Muslims" in despite the events that occurred in Paris.
Why would Obama still support letting "the Muslims" in, if it's clearly not helping him with his vote count?
Please note, don't say that "because Donald Trump is clearly racist by not letting Muslims in", because Islam is NOT A RACE. Thanks.

I'm glad you posted this; as this is a topic I have been wanting to ask on here as well. Here's the thing.. I do not stand behind Trump on almost anything that he says BUT I believe that him wanting to make walls and take Muslims out of the US could actually benefit us in one way or another. There are Muslims that are good people, don't get me wrong. However, that is a very fine line because we never know who is good and who is bad until it is far too late.
Even Obama contradicts himself on such topics. Obama stated in one of his speech's about gun control that "federal background checks simply don't work"; yet he turned around in that same sentence and stated "Don't worry, Muslims will undergo a Federal background check before being allowed in the US". If Federal background checks do not work then what is the point?
Also, it is known that some of the terrorist bombings we have had so far were actually "Refugees" that we took into the US. Therefore, we can't trust a lot of these people that Obama is taking in. Either that or he is full of shit and doesn't perform any sort of background check which truly would not surprise me. However, some people have a clean record and have given no reason for us to believe they are bad people until they end up shooting up shit for the hell of it.
We have so many homeless vets and homeless people in general in the US that we should be worrying about. Instead we are taking in refugees and giving them free food (food stamps), government benefits (TANF and disability), free housing (section 8 and other low income options), recieve free medical insurance (Medicaid) and 90% of these people aren't working and refuse to work. I come from a place where we have more refugees roaming the streets than US citizens. All of these people, minus maybe 1%, sit on their asses and collect from the state while there are other people out there who are denied benefits at all because of how much free shit is being handed out to these refugees. They can't afford to help out US citizens anymore because of this.
So do I think that more refugees should be allowed here? Fuck no. Do I think a lot of these people should be shipped back to wherever they came from? Absolutely! Not only because of terrorism because obviously not all of them are terrorists, but on the simple fact that most of them are freeloaders and just use us for our resources when us Americans have to bust our asses 24/7 just to survive.5

Obama is up for re-election so he doesn't care about votes. i think the better question is why would other candidates, essentially all but Trump, still support taking in Muslim tourists and immigrants
I think the simple answer is because to ban an entire religion is an example of gross intolerance which our country is constantly trying to fight against. considering that less than.1% of all Muslims are considered radicalized it's really an illogical plan to ban all Muslims. Additionally if we went through with a ban like this the next point would be to ban and deport all radicalized Christians, Jews, etc, etc, of which there are definitely plenty in the United States
the primary reason Obama doesn't support a ban is
1. it goes against the principles of inclusion and acceptance
2. he's not worried about votes as he isn't up for re-election4
