President Trump told MSNBC’s Morning Joe today that he would stand by his policy on banning Muslim immigration because that very thing is “destroying Europe”.
Trump’s executive order to place a temporary halt on Muslim immigration to the United States was perhaps his most resisted of his presidency so far, but the New York billionaire is not appearing to back off.
When asked if he still believes that:
“Muslims should be banned from entering the country until we can figure out what’s going on,” Trump said that he didn’t care if the policy hurt his chances in a general election.
“Look at what’s happening. It’s terrible what they have done to some of these countries of they are going to destroy — they are destroying Europe. I’m not going to let that happen to the United States,” said Trump, chiding Obama for refusing to even use the term “radical Islamic terrorism”.
Highlighting the fact that:
“a civilian in the truest sense got the nomination of a major party,” Trump asserted he had been guided by “common sense” and that he would continue to follow that path.
“We have to be careful. We’re allowing thousands of people to come into our country, thousands and thousands of people being placed all over the country that frankly nobody knows who they are. They don’t have documentation in many cases. In most cases. We don’t know what we’re doing. Let’s see what happens. This could be a very serious problem for the future,” added Trump.
Despite a huge media backlash resistance campaign, polls still show that a majority of Americans supported a temporary ban on Muslim immigration.
