Afterward, [Trump] tweeted, “In my speech on protecting America I spoke about a temporary ban, which includes suspending immigration from nations tied to Islamic terror.”
To Burr, that meant a pause in such immigration, not a ban – even though Trump used both words.
“The speech said ‘pause’ – it did not say ‘ban,’ ” Burr said in talking with a handful of reporters Tuesday. “There’s a big difference in that.”
Despite his anemic poll numbers, Burr is standing by the presumptive GOP nominee’s divisive policies. Burr has never been concerned about what North Carolinians want though — only what is most politically viable. Keep practicing those talking points, Senator — maybe instead of being a failed senate candidate in the fall, you can join the ranks of failed veeps.
