Bill Nelson: Trump’s Muslim Ban ‘Exactly the Opposite of What We Ought To Be Doing’

‘We ought to be unifying and let that Muslim-American community, which thinks of themselves as Americans, help us find the misfits’

NELSON: "Of course that’s exactly the opposite of what we ought to be doing. We ought to be unifying and let that Muslim-American community, which thinks of themselves as Americans, help us find the misfits. Donald Trump said we’re letting thousands in. We have let in about 2,000. Compare that to the scores and scores of thousands in Europe. The rest of what we anticipate, another 8,000, will be vetted over the course of a year before they ever come in. No, the attitude that Trump is expressing is constantly divide, divide. That’s not the character of the American people and that’s exactly the opposite of what we need at this time."
