I did a search on Bing for “Trump ban on Muslims” and among the results are these:

Donald Trump: ban all Muslims entering US

This is how the media has portrayed Trump’s words. Here’s the actual statement:

 Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.

In other words, a temporary ban. That word never appears in the media’s characterization of Trump’s quote.

Here is his rationale:

According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center for Security Policy released data showing “25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad” and 51% of those polled, “agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah.” Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won’t convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.

Here’s something else the media never tells you- voters like this plan:

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 66% of Likely Republican Voters favor a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the United States until the federal government improves its ability to screen out potential terrorists from coming here. Just 24% oppose the plan, with 10% undecided.

Among all voters, 46% favor a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, while 40% are opposed. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.

More:

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters believe it is too easy for foreigners to legally enter the Untied States. Only 10% believe it is too hard, while 23% say the level of difficulty is about right.

Fox News published a really interesting poll in which voters liked the idea of a temporary ban on Muslim immigration more if it wasn’t attached to Trump’s name:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump caused a stir last week when he called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States until the government can “figure out what is going on.”

How do voters feel about Trump’s proposal? Well, that depends.

A new Fox News poll finds 50 percent of voters favor Trump’s ban, while 46 percent are opposed.

However, when Trump’s name is removed from the question, support for the plan goes up five points and opposition goes down six: 55 percent favor the unnamed proposal, while 40 percent oppose it.

So while voters favor the “Trump” ban by a 4-point margin — that increases to 15 points when the same ban is not associated with Trump.

There are stunning shifts in the responses among Democrats: 45 percent favor banning Muslims if Trump’s name is not mentioned, yet when the plan is identified as Trump’s, support drops to 25 percent.

For this Trump has been vilified repeatedly while being unendingly misquoted. A couple of days ago I watched, to my huge disappointment, Major Garrett refer to Trump calling for a “ban on Muslims.” They always omit the word “temporary.” Ironically, at The Hill, Former head of DHS Tom Ridge admits that Syrian refugees cannot be vetted.

“A pause for refugees from that part of the world is very appropriate at this time.”

Just as Trump suggested.

This has nothing to do with how I feel about Trump (I don’t like him). It has everything to do with my contempt for the press in general. This is not just derelict. It is utterly dishonest. The same press that deceitfully trashes Trump is ever so careful with Hillary Clinton. Tell the truth, you lying dogs. It’s your responsibility. The line between Scott Pelley and Mario Lopez is getting dangerously thin. If bias is the order of the day, we can all just watch Inside Edition and Entertainment Tonight.

    Governors from Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin all supported a ban on accepting unvetted Muslims from war-torn countries and other failed states in the Islamic world (who pass themselves off as ”war refugees” with faked Passports.)

    Certainly not all of them support Trump!

    The House of Representatives has easily passed the American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act of 2015 to restrict the admission of Iraqi and Syrian refugees to America by requiring extra security procedures. The vote was 289-137. Thus, as you can see, MANY Democrats voted for this.
    Again, most of those were not Trump supporters.

    Here in Utah, where the Mormon Church is king – politically – that church has its own vetting procedure over and above the gov’ts.
    So, here, in Utah, what Muslim refugees are here are REALLY refugees…..also they really have at least one (and often more than one) disabled family member here with them.
    All such families are being helped by charity to be fed, housed, clothed, employed and, most importantly, rehabilitated for the disabilities. I strongly doubt these charities include any Trump supporters, even though Utah is deep red. Utah is deep GOPe red.

    Recall Trump’s first rattle out of the box; declaring that the border must be secured because many of the illegal immigrants flowing in from Mexico are either already criminals or quickly become criminals, which is, of course, solid fact. However, you will still see it stated that Trump thinks Mexicans are rapists and murderers.

    Or, Romney’s binders.

    The media is corrupt; totally and completely. It is not below them to simply make up a story and spread it, and no doubt they will if Trump, Cruz or Rubio continues to cause Hillary trouble, ala CBS/Dan Rather.

    Liberals refuse to learn, they keep pushing and pushing until their thought pattern becomes”normal”. They advise the sheeple in which direction to stampeed, what is morally objectionable despite common sense. The newspapers were the first casualty, cable news will be the next some already have such low ratings. If a news agency would begin that only reported the news no opinion it would be revolutionary.

    Yes, of course. Trump just wants a temporary ban, until we can figure out, in Trump’s words “what the hell is going on.” That should only take, what, Dr. John, a few weeks, a few months, give or take.

    There is no secure vetting. There are no records that are reliable to vet. Our Government is lying to us and then act surprised when an incident occurs.
