Jeff Sessions: Trump Isn’t ‘Banning All Muslims’ or ‘Saying Muslims Can’t Enter,’ But a ‘Pause’ ‘Based On the Nations That They Come From’


On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who is the Chair of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s National Security Advisory Committee stated that Trump is ” not banning all Muslims, not saying Muslims can’t enter into America.” But recommending a “pause” “Based on the nations that they come from.”

Sessions said, “I believe people have misread, though, what he’s saying. He’s not banning all Muslims, not saying Muslims can’t enter into America. he’s saying we have a problem. there’s a radical element there, that is threatening a safety of america, and if i’m given the power, as president, we’re going to have a pause, and we’re going to figure out what’s going on, and improve it. and i think if our people would listen to that full message, they’d feel a lot better about it.”

Sessions added that Trump supports “a temporary pause on immigration until we’ve developed some good policies to –” after host Erin Burnett cut in, “Based on religion.” Sessions stated, “Based on the nations that they come from.”
