Trump: Muslim ban ‘just a suggestion’

Source: The Hill | May 11, 2016 | Julian Hattem

Donald Trump appeared to subtly soften his tone on his proposed ban on foreign Muslims entering the United States Wednesday, in apparent response to criticism from the newly elected Muslim mayor of London.

The planned ban, Trump said on Fox News Radio’s “Kilmeade and Friends,” is only “temporary.”

“It hasn’t been called for yet. Nobody’s done it,” the presumptive Republican nominee said.

“This is just a suggestion until we find out what’s going on.”

Trump stood by his proposal, which has been criticized as potentially unconstitutional, as he has repeatedly since emerging as the presumptive GOP nominee last week.

Yet the slight softening could suggest a change in rhetoric following protracted criticism from Sadiq Khan, the new London mayor. Khan, who is Muslim, has launched perhaps the most direct attacks on Trump’s policies in recent days.

    Trump’a entire platform is “just a suggestion.” Trump has more waffles than The Waffle House.

    Actually, this particular item may even be illegal or certainly subject to litigation by various organizations affiliated with, or supportive of, Muslims. Many of Trump’s ideas sound good to his dimwitted followers, but most of them are of questionable legality or are impractical and perhaps cost-prohibitive. They are meant to reel in voters, but I doubt Trump has any intention of carrying them out.

    “Just a suggestion” is a “slight modification”? I guess it’s too early to tear stump apart for his complete lying, so rather than rip the blindfolds off their eyes, the MSM tells the cultists it’s just a “slight modification. ” And they swallow it whole. stump lowers America’s aggregate mean IQ by about 10 points.

    How would Trump communicate with congress and the people?… via a suggestion box. Then congress can form a four year suggestion viability investigative committee, on and on it goes.
