Donald Trump Calls Mosque Near Ground Zero 'Absolutely Wrong'

One of New York's most outspoken residents has broken his silence on the mosque controversy near Ground Zero.

"Extra" caught up with Donald Trump in Las Vegas at the Miss Universe Pageant where he gave his two cents on the announcement that Muslims have the right to build up a mosque near New York's 9/11 Ground Zero.

"It's very insensitive and it shouldn't be there," the media mogul said. "I'm a big believer in freedom of religion, but I think the mosque being in that location is absolutely wrong."

Miss USA, Rima Fakih, who is of Muslim descent said, "We should be more concerned on the tragedy than anything on religion... but I also agree [with President Obama] that it shouldn't be very close to the World Trade Center."

Watch Fakih and 82 other beautiful contestants compete for the Miss Universe title tonight on NBC.
