(TheHill) Donald Trump is firing back at Hillary Clinton for saying his proposal to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the U.S. promotes terrorism.
"The fact that Hillary thinks the temporary Muslim ban, which she calls the 'Muslim ban', promotes terrorism, proves Bernie Sanders was correct when he said she is not qualified to be President," the presumptive Republican nominee's campaign said in a statement on Thursday.
Clinton was critical of Trump's call to ban Muslims from entering the country in an interview with CNN.

"When you run for president of the United States, the entire world is listening and watching," she told CNN's Chris Cuomo. "So when you say you're going to bar all Muslims, you're sending evidence to the Muslim world, and you're also sending a message to terrorists. … Donald Trump is essentially being used as a recruiter for more people to join the cause of terrorism."
