Trump Website Yanks Dated 'Muslim Ban' Statement

By    |   Monday, 08 May 2017 04:25 PM

President Donald Trump's campaign website swiftly yanked his 2015 Muslim ban statement after a reporter asked about it at Monday's daily briefing, reports say.

ABC News reporter Cecilia Vega grilled White House spokesman Sean Spicer on why Trump's 2015 call for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" is still on the campaign site if the administration is no longer referring to it as a "Muslim ban."

Spicer responded he was not aware of what was on the website, adding the White House has been "very consistent" in referring to this policy as a "travel ban."

"It's in this country's national security interest to make sure the people coming in here are coming in here with the right motives and reasons, and that we're having a public safety aspect to making sure we're protecting our people," Spicer said.

"Is it worth standing here, though, and completely disavowing the use of that phrase, 'Muslim ban'?" Vega pressed.

"I mean, if it's still on the website, if the president's words were being used against him in court today, is it worth you clarifying that once and for all."

The president's executive order was blocked by a judge in Hawaii after it was issued; a federal court in Virginia considered a different challenge of Trump's order on Monday, CNN reported.
