Donald Trump spoke with Chris Matthews this evening at the Wisconsin town hall, hosted by Chris Matthews, and doubled down on his Muslim Ban Plan, citing the fact that the refugees would be more likely to fight ISIS if they were home in Syria defending their own turf.
Trump made the statement Wednesday during an MSNBC town hall, when the GOP presidential front-runner was asked by Chris Matthews about the temporary ban he suggested in December.
Matthews asked if Muslims would be more ill-disposed to fighting ISIS if a ban was imposed.
“I don’t know, maybe they’ll be more disposed to fight ISIS,” Trump said. “Maybe they’ll say, ‘We want to come back into America, we’ve got to solve this problem.'”
When asked which Muslims would be banned from entering, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told ABC News at the time “the ban applies to everyone.”
When Matthews asked Trump about his stance on nuclear warfare during the televised town hall, Trump refused to outright declare a ban on nuclear weapons.
“Can you tell the Middle East we’re not using a nuclear weapon on anybody?” Matthews asked.
