<p>In a focus group with American Muslims on <em>CBS This Morning</em>, participants told political strategist Frank Luntz that Republicans discussing terrorism was so offensive that their children could not be exposed to GOP debates. One woman warned: <strong>&ldquo;I actually did a call out to Muslim parents across the country to not watch the Republican debate in front of their children because I knew that, that &ndash; subjecting our children to hear the hateful stereotyping and the lumping of Muslims with terrorism in front of our children is actually something that psychologically impacts them.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Luntz wondered: &ldquo;But don&#39;t you want the kids to know the challenges that they face?&rdquo; She declared: &ldquo;I don&#39;t want my children to be subjected to racism and the vilification of their faith. I will not allow Donald Trump to tell my kids how they should feel about being Muslim.&rdquo;</p>
