Now that Donald Trump all but has the Republican presidential nomination completely locked up, he has to start thinking about how to actually put his zany and evil ideas into practice. For instance: the Muslim ban. Who better to oversee it than his old pal Rudy Giuliani?
On Fox and Friends this morning, Trump said he was considering forming a commission on Islamic terrorism that could be headed by the ex-New York mayor and failed presidential candidate. The commission would also study his plan to ban Muslims from entering the U.S., the New York Post reports.
Rudy has been informally advising the steak man for months, and he’s no slouch when it comes to paranoid hatred of Muslims—he called it “ridiculous” when the NYPD ended its mosque surveillance program—but he has said in the past that Trump’s ban would be unconstitutional. Maybe if he does take the position, he’ll soften Trump’s stance on immigration ever so slightly. More likely, he’ll just be another Republican abandoning whatever slim principles he had in the first place to fall in line with the new leader.
