Trump: Anything I say now ‘is a suggestion’

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said that he wasn’t committed to some of his most controversial policy positions.

Calling into “Fox & Friends,” Trump was asked by co-host Brian Kilmeade about saying his proposed ban on Muslims entering the country was “just a suggestion” earlier this week. 

“Yeah. It was a suggestion,” Trump said. “Look, anything I say right now — I’m not the president — everything is a suggestion, no matter what you say, it’s a suggestion.”

{mosads}”I feel strongly that we have to do something about — when you look at radical Islamic terrorism, we have a president, as you folks know very well, we have a president who won’t even use the term for the World Trade Center, he won’t use the term. And we have to do something, and you’re not going to do something until you know what the problem is.”

Trump on Wednesday subtly walked back his previous demand for a Muslim ban, which he initially made in the wake of terrorist attacks in December.

“It hasn’t been called for yet. Nobody’s done it,” Trump said Wednesday. “This is just a suggestion until we find out what’s going on.”
