Obama thinks that the US is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world
Obama said the following in an interview 2 days ago:
if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.
This statement is simply not true by any stretch of the imagination. The number of Muslims in America ranges from 1 million to 7 million depending on who you believe (see for example here). Even if we take the higher number of 7 million the US is nowhere near one the largest Muslim countries. 7,000,000 Muslims is a little over 2% of the population. According to Wikipedia the US is number 52 in total population and is not even on the chart in terms of percentage.
What does this say about what Obama really wants? Is anyone in the press going to call Obama out on this?
