Donald Trump on Muslim Ban: ‘Sure I’d Back Off On It’

trumpDonald Trump indicated on Fox News tonight a willingness he hasn’t expressed before to go back on his Muslim ban idea as soon as possible.

Greta Van Susteren brought up concerns people had that the ban could “go on forever.”

Trump said, “It was never meant to be. I mean, that’s why it was temporary. Sure I’d back off on it, I’d like to back off it as soon as possible.”

He did go on to say there’s a serious problem with radical Islam that the U.S. needs to get to the bottom of, while allowing for exceptions in that ban––of which, again, Trump said, “Ultimately it’s my aim to have it lifted.”

“Ideally,” he concluded, “you won’t have a ban very long.”
