Mr Trump called this a"new chapter", saying he was not there to"lecture" them or impose the American way of life. The fight against extremism was not a battle between different faiths or civilizations:"This is a battle between good and evil".

Maybe terrorists would have more respect for the Muslim leaders and follow them. They would have the same culture and probably come to terms better than Trump.

Trump is using this strategy to cut off terrorism at the source by using the leaders of the religion to stand against it.

It's surprisingly smart of Trump to rather use the big picture, instead of just going after the individual foot soldiers on the ground.

He is trying to kill terrorism and radicalism at the source, which is a good method to rid of it all together.

Trump should work with Muslim leaders because they'd have influence on these groups because they have something in common, religion. Trump shouldn't alienate them because they could help against terrorism.

He was the one who alienated the Muslims before and now he's seeking help? Oh how the mighty fall. Now he knows what it would be like to eat humble pie.

Trump should work with Muslims to stop terrorism. It would be the logical thing to do. Working together with the Muslim leaders and community could provide valuable intel.

Muslim leaders could help curb terrorism. They do have connections and intel that might be valuable in tracking these terrorists.

If Trump didn't put heat on Muslims, they might have helped him. Trump is probably seeing the error in his ways and buttering the Muslims leaders to help him.

Trump needs the Muslim leaders so it could mean a truce for all the crap Trump gave Muslims. I think he learned his lesson by now. He needs the Muslims to stop terrorism.

It could be the right move since he really does need their cooperation to weed out the bad Muslims. This could be good strategy.

I agree. It could be Trump extending an olive branch to them after finally coming to his senses. He needs the Muslims whether he likes it or not.

We should really work together to fight terrorism. Trump should put his prejudice aside for Muslims because they could be key in fighting the radicals.

If Trump needs the Muslim leaders, then he better be a lot nicer to them. Alienating them won't help. Trump needs to show he's sincere.
