White House: Trump Idea Anti-American


WHITE HOUSEFollowing Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s statement calling for a ban on all Muslim immigration and travel to the United States, the White House has called such a proposal “contrary to our values as Americans.”

In an interview with CNN, the president’s deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes added: “We have in our Bill of Rights respect for the freedom of religion. Muslim Americans have made extraordinary contributions to our country, but it’s also contrary to our security.”

Rhodes suggested that Trump’s words feed direclty into the hands of ISIS militants. “If we look like we’re applying religious tests to who comes into this country, we’re sending a message that essentially we’re embracing [ISIS framing about Islam vs. the West].”



  1. Maybe was anti-American, but not anymore. Trump is saying what most Americans believe in.
    My life, and the life of any citizen and of any policeman is worth more than theirs, and they dont value their lives at all.

  2. 1. The man in the White House is anti American
    2. What exactly are the “extraordinary contributions” that the Muslims brought to America???

  3. It isn’t anti-American; many of the original English colonies (and all the French and Spanish colonies) allowed only Christians to settle. Then a century ago the nativists tried to keep Jews out. This was an aspect of America that many of us had thought we had put down generations ago. What is amazing is that so many assimilated Jews have bought into this. They are like the Italian Jews who supported Mussolini. We will be next.
