Donald Trump told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that he would stick by his controversial policy on Muslim immigration because the migrant crisis is “destroying Europe”.
Trump’s proposal to place a temporary halt on Muslim immigration to the United States was perhaps his most incendiary executive order, but Trump shows no signs of walking it back.
Asked if he still believed “Muslims should be banned from entering the country until we can figure out what’s going on,” Trump said that he didn’t care if the policy hurt his reputation.
“Look at what’s happening. It’s terrible what they have done to some of these countries of they are going to destroy — they are destroying Europe. I’m not going to let that happen to the United States,” said Trump, chiding Obama for refusing to even use the term “radical Islamic terrorism”.
