Mayor Rick Kriseman Bans Donald Trump from Entering Florida Over Ban on Muslims Entering US


A mayor in Florida says he is barring Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump from his city after the businessman’s latest idea to prevent Muslims from entering the United States.

St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman (D) tweeted late Monday that he was barring Trump from his city “until we fully understand the dangerous threat posed by all Trumps.”

The mayor was playing off Trump’s original statement calling to bar Muslims from the U.S. “until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses.”

A slew of political figures, including a number of Republican presidential rivals and former Vice President Dick Cheney, has slammed Trump’s idea, calling it un-American and unconstitutional.

Trump defended his proposal during a series of television interviews Tuesday morning where he argued that the temporary “shutdown” was necessary amid the fight against Islamic militants.
