Trump’s Republican Rivals Slam His Muslim Moratorium Proposal

Alex Pappas Political Reporter

Donald Trump’s rivals for president are criticizing the Republican frontrunner for proposing to restrict all Muslims from entering the United States.

“Donald Trump is unhinged,” former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tweeted. “His ‘policy’ proposals are not serious.”

”This is just more of the outrageous divisiveness that characterizes his every breath and another reason why he is entirely unsuited to lead the United States,” Ohio Gov. John Kasich said.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham tweeted that Trump “has gone from making absurd comments to being downright dangerous with his bombastic rhetoric.”

Appearing on Michael Medved’s radio show on Monday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said: “This is the kind of thing that people say when they have no experience and don’t know what they’re talking about.”

Campaigning in South Carolina, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz distanced himself from the proposal, saying, according to CNN: “That is not my policy. I’ve introduced legislation in the Senate that would put in place a three year moratorium on refugees coming from countries where ISIS or Al Qaeda can control a substantial amount of territory.”
