Bernstein: Executive Order ‘Trumpist Bigotry Masquerading as National Security Policy’

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” network contributor Carl Bernstein took another shot at President Donald Trump’s executive order putting the brakes on immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries over the span of 90 days.

“This is a piece of Trumpist bigotry masquerading as national security policy to solve a problem that, according to all the experts in the Department of Homeland Security, wasn’t there,” Bernstein said. “It is to fulfill campaign promises. It is to fulfill an authoritarian vision of himself and his presidency. And to go to the truth rarely, let’s go to Rudy Giuliani. Rudy Giuliani has gotten up and said, “Look, I was entrusted with finding a legal justification for a Muslim ban.”
