This article is more than 3 years old.

What’s This? Each week, we’re going to pick a newsworthy or huh?-worthy or whoa-worthy quotation that stuck with us.

OK, What’s This Quotation? After Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump announced his controversial plan to temporarily block Muslims from entering the United States, WBUR's Fred Thys visited the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center for reaction.

Where Can I Find Out More About This Topic? Massachusetts Republican Gov. Charlie Baker blasted Trump's proposal, calling it antithetical to the "values that people in this country hold most dear."

But Trump, in an appearance in New Hampshire Thursday evening, made no apologies for his proposal, and the latest WBUR poll of likely voters in the New Hampshire GOP primary finds Trump clearly in the lead.

How About Previous Quotations Of The Week? They’re all here.
