Does Trump still support a Muslim ban? He won’t say, but Pence says: ‘Of course not.’

  |   World News

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) has been repeatedly asked to clarify something that his running mate simply will not: Does Donald Trump still want to ban Muslims from entering the United States? “Of course not,” Pence said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Thursday, then clarified that the campaign instead wants to suspend immigration from "areas of the world, territories and specifically countries that have been so compromised by terrorism that we can't know for certain who those people are." Pence is one of numerous Trump surrogates to repeatedly say that the Republican presidential nominee does not want a religion-based ban and will instead focus on countries with high rates of terrorism against the United States, most of which happen to have high Muslim populations. In an interview on CNN on Thursday, Pence said that a Muslim ban is "not Donald Trump's position now."
