Newt Gingrich wanted to deport any Muslim in the USA who professed to believe in Sharia law. Google and other ad servers know-God, do they know-if you happen to be interested in motorcycles.
"In moments of tragedy and horror, America comes together as one and it always has", Trump said. It'll still go on for decades.
