Trump on Muslim ban: 'You could say it's an expansion'
by Rebecca Savransky
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in an interview broadcast Sunday denied that he's rolled back his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.
"In fact, you could say it's an expansion," Trump said on NBC's "Meet the Press" when asked about his speech at the Republican National Convention Thursday night, when he called for an immediate suspension of immigration from "any nation that has been compromised by terrorism" until there are proper vetting mechanisms.
"I'm looking now at territory. People were so upset when I used the word 'Muslim.' Oh, you can't use the word 'Muslim.' Remember this. And I'm OK with that, because I'm talking territory instead of 'Muslim.'
