A press release including President Trump’s debatable plan to ban Muslims from coming to the USA has been removed from the President campaign’s website on Monday.
The press release was removed right after Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary, talked to the reporters and said he was unaware that Trump’s proposal was still online.
“You’d have to ask them. I know how we talked about this from the first day of this administration as a travel ban,” and not a Muslim prohibition, Spicer told the reporters. “You’re supposed to make sure that people who are coming 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.
“We’ve been very consistent since the first day of this administration on this,” Spicer added.
After a fatal mass shooting by ISIS in San Bernardino, California in December 2015. As a response to the shooting, Trump then made a statement where he called for a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims who enter the US until the government “figure out what is going on.”
Shortly after that, Trump read his controversial plan in a rally at Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
“We have no choice. We have no choice,” Trump told his supporters. “We have no choice.”
In March, Theodore Chuang, US District Court Judge, stated that even though Trump believes that his plan is not a Muslim ban but rather a Travel ban, he thinks “the history of public statements continues to provide a convincing case that the purpose of the second executive order remains the realization of the long-envisioned Muslim ban.”
The language of Muslin ban was online until Monday afternoon when they were removed from the President Campaign’s website.
No one from the administration responded on whether someone in the White House asked for the plan to be removed or not.
