Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump says he wants to know what sport President Obama was talking about when the president mentioned in his Sunday address that there are Muslim-American sports heroes, and asked if the president was “profiling.”

“Obama said in his speech that Muslims are our sports heroes. What sport is he talking about, and who? Is Obama profiling?” Mr. Trump tweeted early Monday morning.

In his address Sunday evening, Mr. Obama had said: “Muslim Americans are our friends and our neighbors, our co-workers, our sports heroes - and, yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country. We have to remember that.”

A few examples of prominent Muslim-American athletes include boxing legend Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the all-time leading scorer in NBA history.
