Rudy Giuliani is currently serving as Donald Trump’s “White House Security Cyber Advisor,” and has been a day one supporter of the President. On Sunday (Jan. 29) the former New York City Mayor admitted to Fox News Trump called him to “put a commission together, show me the right way to do it legally,” regarding the recently implemented Muslim Ban.
The executive order will bar refugee entry from Syria indefinitely, and all travel from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen will be on hold for 90 days. Fox News host Jeanine Pirro questioned whether or not the ban had anything to do with the Muslim religion.
“I’ll tell you the whole history of it. So when [Trump] 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.'” Giuliani swiftly replied.
“And what we did was, we focused on instead of religion, danger, the areas of the world that create danger for us. Which is a factual basis, not a religious basis. Perfectly legal, perfectly sensible, and that’s what the ban is based on. It’s not based on religion. It’s based on places where there are substantial evidence that people are sending terrorists into our country.”
