Skip to comments.Trump: Muslim Ban 'Just A Suggestion'
Posted on 05/12/2016 12:55:23 PM PDT by Cyberman
Donald Trump, who issued a December press release "calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," said Wednesday such a ban "hasn't been called for yet" and it was "only a suggestion."
It's the latest lightning-speed evolution for the real estate tycoon as he pivots from the provocateur who upended the Republican primary to a general election candidate....

THIS IS BAD.
Criticism is verboten.
Posted on an earlier thread:
Lack of principles? Placing a temporary moratorium on Muslim immigration until we figure out whats going on would indeed be a highly principled commonsense act, but I dont think this was ever part of Trumps original plan. And it was no part of anyones plan. If I remember correctly, Trump just kind of threw it out there during a campaign rally a day or two after the San Bernardino Muslim terrorist attack. It caught in like wildfire amongst his supporters, but the entire ruling class (other than possibly Jeff Sessions) and all fellow candidates and conservative pundits immediately pooh-pooed the idea as being unconstitutional.
Well see. I hope he gets it done, but it would be a Herculean task.
This is not the hill to die on.
OH BOY here goes Clinton News Network at play again...
WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!!
Do not believe anything you read from CNN...they support Hillary and Hillary only and her ilk....
Trump: Save America...
Hillary: Screw America...
Cruz said the same thing...except he said stop immigrants from Muslim countries instead of being muzzie specific.
Dear The Donald, I have a suggestion, DON’T WAFFLE!
I would not trust CNN
First let’s get something straight after San Bernardino Trump suggested that it would be prudent to do a temporary ban of Islamic Travelers into this country “until we figure out what’s going”
it was never the permanent ban all Muslims that the Press try to make it out as
To my knowledge he never called for a permanent ban as he indicates above.CNN mischaracterized his words.
He’s been very strong on this issue. He cannot waffle.
He’s gonna end up just barely to the right of Hillary pretty soon, maybe close enough to hold hands.
But...if he’s the nominee...I’ll vote for him...
Still haven’t seen or heard the recording of Trump saying it was a suggestion. The media has been misquoting Trump for ages trying to make him look like a flip flopper.
He needs to change it to a ban on all immigration, as was done for forty years, until a certain criteria has been met. That criteria should consist of:
- the national debt being significantly reduced
- the REAL unemployment rate reaching an acceptable level
- the current crop of legal immigrants must be satisfactorily assimilated
- the illegals in the country must be summarily dealt with
- a very thorough and highly secure screening process for any new, legal immigration must be in place
If he halts all immigration, nobody can scream discrimination - there is no real way of screening out muslims....they have been known to avoid telling the truth.
Don’t go squishy on us, Donald!!!
Whining from Loser Cruzers does not rehabilitated your failed candidate.
What you said...
Is the Wall also a suggestion ?
This is the only issue that led me to support him. If he was being dishonest about his position on muslims entering the US, I see no reason to continue that support.
