A Florida mayor says he's banning Donald Trump from his city after the Republican presidential candidate called for the U.S. to stop Muslims from entering the country.

Playing off of Trump's earlier words, St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman tweeted Monday that he was banning Trump "until we fully understand the dangerous threat posed by all Trumps."

The Tampa Bay Times (http://tinyurl.com/hk5hz4k) reports the mayor's jab was retweeted more than 1,200 times in about an hour.

Trump's proposed ban is in response to what he called hatred among "large segments of the Muslim population" toward Americans.

Trump said the ban should be implemented "until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses."

Trump's proposal was quickly condemned by other Republican and Democratic presidential candidates.
