AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): People are so scared about -- they're so terrified that we're going to offend someone. However, what's offensive is to have 49 people dead today. How do you explain that to their families? 

RUDY GIULIANI: How stupid is it to pull police officers out of the mosques? Absolutely stupid. 

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): And during your administration --

GIULIANI: I put them in. 

DOOCY: -- there was surveillance of mosques, that's right. And Donald Trump called for a renewal of that particular policy.

[...]

GIULIANI: [T]he reality is, I put police officers undercover in mosques, and then Ray Kelly and Mayor Bloomberg increased it substantially after September 11 as they should have. And the present mayor has taken them out. And that's part of not identifying what the common thread is in the attack in San Bernardino, the attack in Brussels, the attack in Paris and now the attack in Orlando.
