Donald Trump Calls for the Exclusion of All Muslims from the United States Again — With No Exceptions
“He’s calling for a temporary shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until we can figure out what’s going on.” — narrator of Donald Trump’s first television advertisement.
“I’m Donald Trump and I approve this message.” — Donald Trump, in his first television advertisement.
There are no qualifications of this declaration in Donald Trump’s advertisement. He just called for a “shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” Period.
There are a lot of problems with Donald Trump’s blanket declaration. I would like Donald Trump to meet one just of those problems. I would like Donald Trump to meet an old college roommate of mine. His name is Jeff. He’s an American citizen. He’s a Muslim. He goes on business trips outside the country. Donald Trump would prevent him from coming back.
Why? Because Donald Trump hasn’t “figured out what’s going on.”
This is no way to lead a nation. And if you think Donald Trump’s declaration blanket ban on Muslim travel out of and then back into the country is a good idea, then you’re part of the problem.
