Earlier today the White House mysteriously cleared any signs of a call for a Muslim Ban from their website. This is only after a reporter asked about it, and it disappeared almost instantly.
ABC News’s Cecilia Vega, tweeted that within minutes after asking why the website is still calling for the ban, it was deleted.
The terrible idea for the ban was announced in December 2015, when Donald Trump put in his bid as the Republican presidential nominee.
“If this White House is no longer calling this a Muslim ban, as the president did initially, why does the president’s website still explicitly call for ‘preventing Muslim immigration’ and it says ‘Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”
Here comes Spicer trying to save Trump’s behind once again. He insisted that he knew what was on the site tried to defend the ridiculous ban by giving an explanation for it.
“It’s in this country’s national security interest to make sure that people who are 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 that we’re protecting our people.”
However, Vega wasn’t playing any games. She needed answers and as per usual, Spicer didn’t have them. All he could do was get it erased from the site.
Currently, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals is hearing oral arguments regarding Trump’s revised travel ban. A federal judge placed a nationwide hold on it initially, and another federal judge placed a nationwide block on the second ban.
The nation needs no part of your ban Mr. President. No matter how hard Spicer will try to defend it, it’s wrong!
