Rudy Giuliani said Donald Trump came to him for guidance on implementing a so-called “Muslim ban” and from that, he helped construct the controversial order crippling international travel from predominantly Muslim countries.
The ex-NYC mayor said he pitched the ban, not as a religious prohibition, but one focused on “danger,” he said on Fox News late Saturday.
“I’ll tell you the whole history of it,” Giuliani told Jeanine Pirro as a Brooklyn judge thwarted President Trump’s executive order. “When he first announced it, he said ‘Muslim ban.’”
“He called me up, he said ‘put a commission together, show me the right way to do it, legally.’”
Last year in May, Trump suggested Giuliani lead a think group to study the Swiss cheese” border to Mexico. As the presumptive Republican nominee, Trump told Fox News that a Muslim immigration ban was a mere “suggestion.”
Giuliani named former federal Judge Michael Mukasey, Rep. Peter King and Texas Rep. Michael McCaul as additional architects of the ban, which came to fruition when Trump signed the executive order on Friday.
He detailed the ban’s history as Pirro asked if the ban had “anything to do with religion” and how Trump settled on the seven countries in the Middle East and Africa, including the war-torn Syria.
Pirro expressed surprise that Pakistan and Saudi Arabia were not on Trump’s list, citing that one of the assailants behind the San Bernardino assault in December 2015 was born in Pakistan and came to the U.S. through Saudi Arabia.
In response, the Trump surrogate gave Saudi Arabia the benefit of the doubt, despite overseeing the Big Apple during the 9/11 terrorist attack when the majority of the hijackers who orchestrated the deadly plot hailed from the oil-rich country.
Say it loud!

DUMP AND HIS MINION ARE Blaming Obama, for fucked up EOs

This is why Chris Hayes from MSNBC needs to stay his puny white ass out of Chicago, and black folks need not cooperate with these staged town halls.
If he wants to address violence in America, go directly to Pennsylvania Avenue and the “Bannon” administration. They are citing violence, division, and chaos.
TRUTH and we re watching & listening to each and every elected official and where they stand on the all American’s rights and freedoms.

Ignorant, racist, stupid, uneducated ,orange POS. I signing checks he CANNOT CASH.
Will not be long before there is a twitter rant from Trumpeter about foul judge who dared to mess with his launching crusade against Muslims but not Saudi’s and Pakistani’s. Confusing but missing tax returns would probably explain Saudi bent. And maybe there is a Trump palace in the works in Pakistan – maybe he is going to buy bin Ladin’s old place as a B&B. His friends will want to attack all Federal Judges soon.
Yep, and Spicer, Conway, and Preibus, are out there spinning this fuckery like a Maytag
Spicer is flat out blaming former President Barack Obama. THE BALLS ON THI LIAR.
