Muslim Ban Language Suddenly Disappears from Trump Campaign Website after Spicer Questioned

posted on May 9, 2017

The Washington Post‘s Fred Barbash reports that language about a Muslim ban was scrubbed from President Trump’s campaign website recently. He writes, “ABC’s Cecilia Vega appears to have been the first to notice. ‘Minutes after we asked the WH why the President’s campaign website still called for a Muslim ban, it appears the statement was deleted,’ she tweeted.” Barbash adds, “That was just hours after judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, which is reviewing a district-court ruling declaring the ban unconstitutional, questioned administration lawyers about ‘statements of the president on the campaign trail.'”
