Hillary Clinton takes to Twitter to criticize Republican candidate Ben Carson over comments on a Muslim becoming president.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Monday took to Twitter to criticize Republican candidate Dr. Ben Carson for saying he would not support a Muslim becoming president.

Carson, responding to a question on NBC’s “Meet the Press” in an interview on Sunday, said, “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.”

He added said that Islam, as a religion, is incompatible with the Constitution.

The comments invoked a firestorm in the United States, with critics including Minnesota Democratic Representative Keith Ellison, who is the first Muslim congressman in the United States, as well as Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations also criticized the remarks and called on Carson to withdraw from the race.

Clinton threw in her two cents on Monday, refuting Carson’s point that Islam is incompatible with the Constitution and the American presidency.

“Can a Muslim be President of the United States of America? In a word: Yes. Now let’s move on. -H,” she tweeted, quoting article VI of the Constitution which says that “no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
