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....

Alle Muzzies raus
Now watch for people to get hung up on policy proposals and call Trump a flip-flopper. Nevermind that banning Muslims was never the point in itself.
The end goal is to keep Americans safe by having reasonable vetting procedures in place to screen out potential Jihadists among Muslim migrants. The goal hasn’t changed, and the policy means towards attaining it were always going to be mutable.
If the compromise is to do it by country, huge win. If the compromise is to do nothing, then damn.
Just because they aren't banned on the basis of religion doesn't mean they still won't get banned. The majority of the US legal system is based on nationality, not religion.
He already waffled by changing from all Muslims banned to his ‘wealthy friends’ being allowed in (and presumably anyone that had expedited screening with US security) but I do think it will be put in front of a commission and we’ll see what comes out of that. I would be for it also but the idea of requiring a religious background check on all tourists entering the country was never going to pass without modification.
I don’t understand how something can be ‘unconstitutional’ when it doesn’t affect citizens...?
This was picked up by CNN in the MSM echo chamber. I believe it was originally n a Brit paper and related directly to the new Mayor of London. Read that actual quote instead of the headline, always a good idea. Unless, of course, the headline confirms your own thinking instead of what was said.
This would be considered unconstitutional. There is no way they couldn’t find a judge to stop it. Trump is being realistic. Our country sucks. I guess Trump could have continued saying it to make us all happy but there was no way this would ever happen.
What we’ve been trying to tell everyone for MONTHS on end now, till we were blue in the face! No surprise.
THIS CAN BE EXPECTED, (even from Trump).
He is becoming like most politicians.
Expect him to meet with some imam in a DC mosque to “discuss” the muzzie situation.
Trumps words were in quotes which means he said them....what we don’t know is what the complete quote was and the context it was said in...
He is backtracking in some form from his original statement...
See my shocked face....
So I’ll just vote for the Felon right? Don’t think so.
Please, tell us until you run out of breath permanently.
The claim was you can’t have a religious test on immigration.
One really needs to consider the source on this one...after all this article is from the Clinton News Network.
Thank you for referencing that article Cyberman. Please bear in mind that the following critique is directed at the article and not at you.
Ive watched two videos associated with the referenced video so far to see Trump saying that Muslim temporary ban just a suggestion, but have failed to find such a video. I have also unsuccessfully Googled to find such a video.
Can somebody post a link to such a video? Or did corrupt media put words in Trumps mouth?
No he is not....the media is being paid by the Clinton Crime Family to say anything to discredit Trump...
He said he wanted to stop it until we could find a better way to vet people coming in without documentation, that we don’t know who they are, or where they come from...
If you think that is back tracking, you need to re read things...
He has appointed Rudy to make sure of the laws that are on the books already are going to be followed when he gets his laws ready for Congress...
