GOP senator: Trump should 'soften' position on Muslims
by Jessie Hellmann
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) is calling on presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to soften his position on Muslims, saying a ban is "unconstitutional."
"He's got to soften his position there," Flake said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. "I mean, a total and complete ban on Muslims — that is a religious test that is certainly against the Constitution.
"And it is the last thing we should do if we want to win a war on terrorism," Flake said. "So it's constitutionally wrong, and also, strategically, it's just not a smart thing to do."
