Trump wants to ban only one religion - for now

Andy Borowitz at the New Yorker reports on the disappointment and disenchantment of Trump's supporters. They do not want him to stop with Muslims.

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—The billionaire Donald Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States has sparked deep disappointment among his supporters, many of whom had hoped he was planning to ban a sizable number of other religions.

In conversations with likely Trump voters across the country, reactions ranged from disenchantment to a sharp sense of betrayal as supporters tried to make sense of his decision to ban members of only one faith.

But some still have faith in Trump's long term aims.

... Tracy Klugian, a Trump supporter from Bismarck, North Dakota, said that voters who were upset with the billionaire for banning members of only one religion were “freaking out over nothing.”

“People need to understand that he’s banning Muslims first because they’re the most obvious religious group you’d want to ban,” she said. “I’m sure once he’s President he’ll get to all the other ones.
