Newly minted White House aide Kellyanne Conway on Thursday said that President-elect Donald Trump does not seek an immigration ban based solely on religion.
Conway, earlier Thursday announced as counselor to the president, told CNN's "New Day" morning show that Trump would focus on country of origin.
"You're going back to over a year ago in what he said about the (Muslim) ban versus what he said later about it, when he made it much more specific and talked about countries where we know that they've got a higher propensity of training and exporting terrorists," Conway told CNN.
Conway's assertions come one day after Trump said he has been proven right regarding his position on immigration in light of the attack in Berlin earlier this week.
Many inferred that to mean Trump's right about restricting Muslim immigration.
