What does 'stop Muslim immigration until we figure it out' really mean?

I was watching the generally excellent Trump ad where he talks about stopping Muslim immigration until we can "figure out what is going on," and I hit the pause button.  What does that mean – "until we can figure out what is going on"?

Is there a single person reading this article who does not understand what is going on?

1) An unidentifiable minority of Muslims who enter our country want to kill Americans.  There is no way to figure out reliably who they are.

2) A larger subset of Muslims coming from the Middle East want, when their numbers get large enough, to impose sharia law; to execute women with "honor killings"; to beat their wives; to cut off their daughters' clitorises; and to hunt and kill Jews, cartoonists, and anyone one else they don't like.

In Norway, they are actually giving the Muslims classes on how not to rape women.  Saudis who come to America are often arrested for abusing women, like this man who claimed he "accidentally fell into" a woman rather than purposefully raping her.  In Germany, a mob of more than a thousand Muslims stole from, raped, and attacked people in a train station.  Many refugees come here with photos of ISIS flags on their cell phones.

Many Muslims from the Middle East don't have the same respect for others that we do.  So what really is there to figure out?  I can think of only two possibilities:

1) Trump knows the truth that we shouldn't be letting any Muslims into this country until they make some serious changes to their culture, but he is afraid to say so, so he calls it "temporary" and describes it as a problem to figure out.  If that's the case, it's a shame that Trump, who always claims he says what he thinks, is afraid to come out and say the whole truth.

2) Trump is speaking the truth and is actually clueless, thinking in fact that there is a way to weed out terrorists, criminals, and sharia law fans especially from countries where vetting is not possible.  It's shocking for a man running for president to run an ad saying "until we can figure out what is going on."  If Trump truly doesn't know what is going on for such an important issue, then he really is clueless and shouldn't be running for president.

I admire intellectual honesty; saying "we have to figure it out" is a coward's way of avoiding the truth.

So which is it: that Trump is afraid to speak the truth, or is he really clueless?

Exit question: Let us know in the comments section if you too are confused like Donald Trump and "need to figure out what is going on."
