Trump Removes Language about Banning Muslims from His Website

BeritaDEKHO - Trump’s December 2015 statement calling for a "total and complete shutdown" of Muslims vanished from the website on Wednesday, after the Republican presidential nominee beat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the battle for the White House.  

The proposal, titled "Donald J. Trump Statement on Preventing Muslim Immigration," read: "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on, as reported by

"According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population."

"Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine," the statement continued.

The statement, however, was restored on Thursday afternoon, according to The Washington Post.

"The website was temporarily redirecting all specific press release pages to the homepage," Trump's campaign said in a statement to the newspaper. "It is currently being addressed and will be fixed shortly."

Trump stunned the world on Wednesday by defeating heavily favored Clinton in Tuesday's presidential election, sending the United States on a new, uncertain path.

Anti-Trump demonstrations and walkouts were staged on Wednesday across the US in which the participants slammed the billionaire’s divisive campaign rhetoric about undocumented immigrants, Muslims and other groups.

Trump’s election campaign had been marred by his disparaging remarks against minorities in the US. His comments include a call to ban all Muslims from coming to America as well as stopping Mexican migrants by building a long wall along the US-Mexico border.

He has also sought for a database to track Muslims across the United States and said that the US would have "absolutely no choice" but to close down mosques.

Trump’s proposal was widely condemned by Muslim and human rights groups as well as his Democratic rivals and many of his Republican proponents who describe the proposal as divisive, counterproductive and contrary to American values. (adm)
