Trump Spox Battles S.E. Cupp on Muslim Ban Proposal: ‘So What? They’re Muslim!’ (Mediaite)

Katrina Pierson, a spokeswoman for Donald Trump‘s campaign, battled conservative commentator S.E. Cupp Tuesday over the presidential candidate’s recent proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States, insisting the plan is “really nothing new.”

Trump received significant backlash from Democrats and Republicans after releasing a statement Monday calling for the United States to ban Muslims from entering the country. Cupp, who said on a panel earlier today that Trump “will never be president,” labelled the proposal “morally repulsive,” “unconstitutional, and unAmerican.”

Pierson told Jake Tapper the U.S .already has “laws on books giving Congress the authority to ban immigration from nations that hostile towards America,” adding “this is really nothing new.”
