New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says Donald Trump's recent comments about Muslims will only help fuel ISIS.

Gov. Cuomo told CNN's "New Day" that the Republican presidential contender's call to ban Muslims from the United States are nothing but destructive.

"Donald Trump could be a recruitment poster for ISIS, because he is fanning the flames of hate," said Cuomo. "No Muslims in the United States. One billion Muslims were just alienated with one sentence. And at this point, we don't need more Muslim enemies, we need more Muslim allies."

Gov. Cuomo says Trump's comments play directly to extremists in the GOP.
