Presidential hopeful Herman Cain, while controversial, has a possible chance of winning the Republican nomination.“Many of the Muslims, they are not totally dedicated to this country,” GOP campaigner Herman Cain said in March. “They are not dedicated to our Constitution. Many of them are trying to force Sharia law on the people of this country.”
Prior to this defence, a reporter had asked Cain if he would appoint a Muslim to his administration if he were elected president of the US, to which Cain replied unequivocally, “No”.
While he later apologised to Muslims in the US for his inflammatory comments, this was not the only time Cain has made controversial statements.
