J. Peter Donald slammed the presidential candidate, noting that nearly 1,000 police officers in New York are Muslim and called Cruz's remarks "foolish."

Donald was far from the only one to criticize Cruz's statement that the US should patrol Muslim neighborhoods in the wake of the attacks in Brussels. Earlier in the day, the Anti-Defamation League released a statement condemning Cruz, calling his comment "misguided and counterproductive."
