So he has not actually said he is banning Muslim. Now I am not saying I support his actions

 

I doubt he specifically said that since it would probably be an impeachable offence. I suspect he has tried to get around it by banning everyone, then making exceptions for 'persecuted minorities'. I think this why the ban has aroused so much anger.

I am not wanting to be a pain and my enquiry is genuine but can someone please show a direct quote that Trump has said that he is banning Muslims, not Mr* reporting he said or such like. It is an important distinction.

Is it though?

 

Banning people from countries where most people are muslims, and then opening up for christians. Thats not a muslim ban?

 

Its like banning all people from an area, and the opening up for whites. If that area is predominantly black, then that in your book isn't banning black people?

New deputy CIA chief appointed:

Haspel, a career C.I.A. employee, took part in another of the agency’s darkest moments: the destruction, in 2005, of video tapes of the interrogation of Zubaydah and a second suspect, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, at whose torture she was present, three years before.


Ability to destroy evidence? Check.

Does a statement made by his campaign count?

DonaldJTrump.Com :DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT ON PREVENTING MUSLIM IMMIGRATION (New York, NY)

December 7th, 2015, -- Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on.

It was a central pillar of his campaign from the beginning. He referred to it often.

He is a lunatic, with some terrible, and some reasonable ideas.

I can understand why the poor guy needs a holiday already. He's been so busy destabilising the world for the last two weeks.

You've got time to post here, so you've certainly got time to research yourself instead of trying to nitpick. Here's a series of quotes that took me mere seconds to find.

EDIT: A tweet straight from the horses mouth after a little more (brief) searching

I don't feel he is destabilising the world. They all aren't happy. He is destabilising himself and his hand picked team, and the US. I rate the annoyance of the world, and inconvenience to the banned to be a small price to pay so far. All the damage is where it belongs. McCain will have a growing band if respected Senators joining him I feel. Its not good people wanting to overthrow other good people leading the country. I'd wager they are watching for the time to ramp that up. Two weeks in, and here we are.

He's not destabilizing anything, he's establishing himself as a dictator. And doing very well.

Well, your right.

 

My spellcheck didn't correct the word dictator either...

Also he mentions banning here at about 5 minutes in. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0x4p59C1E8U Also watch the whole thing because it just shows what a joke it has become.
