Donald Trump on Monday said there should be a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”

Trump’s statement, which was promoted by his aides on Twitter, cited a Pew Research study which the campaign said showed “there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population.”
