In response to Donald Trump‘s suggestion that the U.S. should “certainly” establish a database for Muslims, Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said such a database should be extended to all Americans, and shouldn’t be used to scrutinize any specific religion or race.

“I think we should have a database on everybody who comes into this country,” Carson said Friday in New Hampshire, adding that the U.S. government should also be keeping a record of Americans who are already here.

Asked to address Trump’s comments from Thursday when the real estate magnate said he would “certainly implement” a database to track Muslims, Carson said everyone should be treated the same way, implying that Muslims should not receive extra scrutiny.
