Donald Trump's latest proposal targeting Muslims is striking a nerve among Democrats and Republicans.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

The Republican presidential frontrunner told supporters in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, that there should be a total ban on Muslims entering the United States.

(Trump) "Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses."

Presidential rival Carly Fiorina told FOX News Trump is "rabble rousing" and playing on people's fears.

(Fiorina) "That overreaction is as dangerous and Barack Obama's under-reaction."

GOP candidate Jeb Bush is calling Trump "unhinged". 

Trump is defending his stance, saying he doesn't care about political correctness.

The top Republican in Congress is blasting Donald Trump's proposal to block Muslims from traveling to the U.S.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more on Capitol Hill:

House Speaker Paul Ryan tries not to weigh in on the Republican presidential race, but this morning, made an exception.

(Ryan) "This is not conservatism. What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for."

Ryan, joining a chorus of Republicans blasting Donald Trump, the GOP's frontrunner, for proposing a ban on Muslim traveling to the U.S. Others in the Republican race have called the statement idiotic, dangerous and unhinged.

Trump said in an interview he doesn't care about rebukes from GOP leaders... arguing he's doing what's right.
