Dick Cheney Dismisses Trump’s Muslim Ban: ‘Goes Against Everything We Stand For’

Former Vice President Dick Cheney thinks Donald Trump is going too far in proposing a ban on foreign Muslims entering the United States.

Cheney told radio host Hugh Hewitt the idea of banning a whole group of people on religious grounds “goes against everything we stand for and believe in.”

He said that religious freedom is an important American tradition and said Trump is going off a “mistaken notion” about how to deal with refugees.

And how long until Trump criticizes Dick Cheney for not being tough enough on terrorism?
