Trump Camp Compares Muslim Ban Proposal to Obama’s ‘Keep Your Doctor’ Remark

From the Free Beacon [1]:

Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson compared Trump’s proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country to President Obama’s false Obamacare promise that “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” in a CNN appearance Friday.

On The Today Show earlier in the day, Trump said [2] he was “always flexible on issues” and that his proposed Muslim ban was merely a “suggestion” from a presidential candidate. CNN host Wolf Blitzer suggested this indicated a “softening” on a key issue and perhaps an attempt to pivot toward the middle for a general election.
