‘They’re destroying Europe – I’m not going to let that happen to the United States’ Trump doubles down on non-citizen Muslim ban

Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump doubled down on his call to ban non-American Muslims from entering the United States even if the stance causes problems going forward in the general election.

‘They’re destroying Europe, I’m not going to let that happen to the United States,’ Trump said this morning during an interview on Morning Joe.

The Donald was taking a victory lap after his chief rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, threw in the towel last night after a disappointing showing in Indiana.

    The pope lies to me about muslims, and Donald Trump tells me the truth about muslims.

    What a crazy, messed up world this is.

    • Maurice Miner

      And what an excellent comment, BillyHW.

      Of course, someone (much more clever than I) the other day posted the following on one of the many sites I frequent:

      “Years ago, we had Kingdoms, which were ruled by Kings.

      Then, we got Empires, which were ruled by Emperors.

      Now, we’ve got a Country…”

      A solid post indeed!

      • BillyHW

        And what a country!

  • Trump is the man.

    He speaks the truth, and the left doesn’t like it.

    Praise the Lord.

    • Brett_McS

      He says everything about everything. Just pick the statement you like. That’s the one he means.

      … and pass the ammunition!

    If Trump gets just this one thing right he is doing a huge, well YUGE, service to America win or lose.

      My libtard profs at UVic lamented the lack of Trump’s “civility” and “inclusiveness” while shaking their heads and clutching their pearls. It was REALLY entertaining to witness their “concerned” face.

      They are utterly clueless that the left has been responsible for the Klan, slaving and all sorts of vile behavior and stupid policies.

    If he keeps to this sorta thing and keeps beating up on Killary, he’s going to win a 45 state mandate.

      Trump / Mia Love 2016
      she is solid , black , conservative and the GOP hate her

      • FivePointSpurgeon

        You’re pandering. Here’s a name for you: Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State.

        My top three: Mattis, Kobach, Jeff Sessions.

        • mauser 98

          noo..not pandering.. a female gives Trump cover to sling lotsa dirt at Hill and not be called sexist

          • FivePointSpurgeon

            Not sure if you noticed but he’s kinda already started and doesn’t give a damn.

    “To know what is right and not do it is cowardice.” – Confucius. Trump’s got my vote.

  • Brett_McS

    A “Muslim ban” simply won’t fly – it would have to get through Congress – but at least he could stop Obama’s insane importation of thousands of the creeps. But then probably not one of the Republican candidates would have continued that practise anyway (well, maybe Jeb).

    • jim marriot

      Actually it wouldn’t have to go to congress. A threat to National Security (which many muslims are) could be declared.

      • Brett_McS

        Not a chance.

      • Minicapt

        Aliens and Sedition Act, just saying …

        A President bypassing Congress? Inconceivable!

        • Brett_McS

          Anything that requires funding requires Congressional approval.

      • Kell

        Since obama “led” by executive order, why can’t Trump? Can’t wait for the exploding heads when it starts, though!

        • Brett_McS

          That’s an interesting comment. I’m absolutely certain that he is thinking the same thing. But what makes you think he will do anything you want? He’s been a liberal democrat his whole life.

    And in Sunny Ways Canada, CTV News is reporting this morning, that Trudeau is in discussions with our military to find ways to fast track thousands more muslims from Syria. Because what Canada needs right now, is thousands more muslim voters.

    Trump – Nixon comparison on CNN this morning
    they are desperate

  • Brett_McS

    Just about a year ago Trump was criticizing Pamela Geller for her Draw Mohammad cartoon contest. Does that sound like someone who is going to do the hard yards to try to push a “Muslim ban” through Congress?

    • mauser 98

      yes … and flipped on men in womens bathrooms
      expect more
      its him or Hill though

      • simus1

        Sounds like Hitlery is good at channeling Queen Elizabeth Tudor.

        • mauser 98

          let them eat cake!

  • simus1

    There are few things more dangerous for this corrupt world than an honest politician.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Between this and his reassessment of NATO, here is the message I think Trump is sending Europe.

    Does anyone find it ironic that Trudeau is attending a Holocaust Memorial service today, while at the same time today, the government is meeting with the military to bring thousands more muslims over.
