The white house reacted sharply to the words of billionaire Donald trump about the need for a ban on the entry of Muslims in the United States. White house press Secretary Josh Ernest said at the briefing that such statements deprive trump of the right to be President, and also advised Republicans quickly distance themselves from controversial statements.
Ernest recalled that every President after the election swears to defend the Constitution of the country, and the implementation of such proposals would be a violation of the oath. «That said trump contrary to the values enshrined in our Constitution,» said White house press Secretary.
Donald trump on 7 December on Board of a warship Yorktown in his speech on the occasion of the National day of memory was proposed to ban entry to the U.S. all Muslims «until then, until those who represent the country, do not understand what happens» after the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino.
Trump cited the data of sociological surveys, according to which a significant portion of the Muslim population of the USA suffers from a hatred of Americans, and about a quarter of respondents agree that violence against Americans is «part of a global Jihad», and half of respondents believe that the Muslims of America should have the right to live under Sharia law.
«Until then while we will not be able to identify and understand the problem and as long as there is the threat that it poses, our country cannot be the victim of a monstrous attack on people who believe in Jihad and are not guided by common sense or respect for human life,» said trump, pojasnili that strengthening his position caused loss of life in California.
Thus, trump has opposed almost all influential U.S. politicians, including President Barack Obama, who after the tragic events in San Bernardino said that this attack should not sow sectarian strife in the country.
