SHAFAQNA- In an MSBNC town hall on Wednesday night, Donald Trump said that a lot of people like him for his proposal to ban all Muslims from the country — but he also admitted that there may be some exceptions to the ban.
“I think banning until we figure out what’s going on is an important thing, and I take a lot of heat for it, and a lot of people like me for it to be honest with you,” Trump said when asked about the proposal.
“I have been called by more Muslims saying what you are doing is a great thing, not a bad thing,” he continued. “Believe it or not, I have a lot of friends that are Muslim, and they call me, and in most cases, they’re very rich Muslims.”
Pressed by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews whether Trump’s friends could even get into the country with a ban on Muslims, Trump conceded. “They’ll come in,” he said. “They’ll come in, and you’ll have exceptions.”
