Donald Trump: 'I'm doing good for the Muslims'

Donald Trump has denied claims he is a racist, insisting he is "doing good for the Muslims" with his call to ban Muslims from entering the US.

As a petition appealing for the controversial billionaire to be banned from the UK passed 360,000 signatures, Trump said the American public was behind his proposal as were his "many Muslim friends".

Trump, who is seeking the Republican nomination for next year's presidential election, told CNN: "I am the least racist person that you have ever met."
