Donald Trump is once again shifting the parameters of his proposed temporary ban on Muslims entering the country, calling Sunday for "extreme vetting" of persons from "territories" with a history of terror — though not explicitly abandoning his previous across-the-board ban.
In an interview with "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday, Trump zeroed in on people from suspicious "territories" as those who will receive deep scrutiny when trying to enter the United States. He did not directly repudiate his previous call for an outright ban.
"Call it whatever you want," Trump told CBS when asked if he was changing his previously released policy.
"Change territories, but there are territories and terror states and terror nations that we're not going to allow the people to come into our country," he said.
