Trump Scrubs Call For “Muslim Ban” From Campaign Website Minutes After Spicer Was Asked About It

The Hill reports:

President Trump’s campaign appears to have removed the 2015 press release calling for a halt on Muslim immigration to the United States following a reporter’s question on Monday. “Minutes after we asked the WH why the President’s campaign website still calls for a Muslim ban, it appears the statement was deleted,” ABC News’ Cecilia Vega wrote on Twitter. The release, which was from December of 2015 during Trump’s bid for the Republican presidential nomination, appears to have been removed.

Vega asked White House press secretary Sean Spicer about the release during Monday’s briefing. “If this White House is no longer calling this a Muslim ban, as the president did initially, why does the president’s website still explicitly call for ‘preventing Muslim immigration’ and it says ‘Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,’” Vega asked Spicer.
