Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has called for a halt to Muslims entering the US, in the wake of the deadly California shootings.
Trump, the billionaire developer and former reality TV star who frequently uses racially charged rhetoric, called for a complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”
At a campaign rally in South Carolina later, Mr Trump repeated the pledge, to loud cheers from supporters.
Trump’s statement on “preventing Muslim immigration” drew swift and fierce blow-back from many directions, including the White House, rivals for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, and Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.
