Sen. Hoeven Reacts to Trump's Muslim Remarks

By  | 

Donald Trump's latest comments have a lot of people doing a double take. Trump proposed total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States, including American citizens.

Republican leadership has condemned the remarks.

Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., said, "We need to combat radical Islamist jihadists like ISIL with an effective strategy both abroad with our allies and here at home."

Hoeven went on to say, however, "Banning someone from entering the United States based solely on their religion is not the right approach and runs counter to our Constitution." ​

We reached out to a spokesman from Representative Kevin Cramer's office, but he has yet to respond.
