Republican presumptive Presidential nominee Donald Trump has called for tighter controls on Muslims, in an embarrassing gaffe yesterday. He meant tighter controls on guns.
In a mistake-riddled speech, Mr Trump said, “When I’m President, people won’t just be subject to stricter background checks. I’ll totally stop people immigrating from Muslim countries altogether”. He meant he’d stop people buying machine guns.
Visibly fatigued due to an exhausting schedule, Mr Trump told his audience, “I called for a ban on Muslims after San Bernadino”. He meant semi-automatic weapons.
In a final embarrassing gaffe, Mr Trump said, “The shooter was born Afghan”. He meant, ‘The shooter was born in New York’.
