White House slams Trump's plan to ban Muslims from entering US

Senior White House officials lined up Monday to condemn Donald Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States, saying it was contrary to US values and interests.
"You're being generous by describing it as a proposal," said White House spokesman Josh Earnest, castigating the fiery Republican presidential frontrunner's latest outburst as "cynical."
"I think what Mr Trump is doing is something that he's been doing over the course of his entire campaign, which is... to play on people's fears in order to build support for his campaign."

"I think what he's doing, he's dividing America in a really cynical way," Earnest told MSNBC.
A statement from Trump's campaign team earlier ignited a political firestorm, by suggesting he would stop Muslims from entering the country "until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."
The comments come in the wake of a mass shooting that saw a married couple kill 14 people and we denounced by many in his own party.

"It's entirely inconsistent with the kinds of values that were central to the founding of this country," said Earnest.
One of President Barack Obama's top foreign policy aides, Ben Rhodes, told CNN that the plan was also "contrary to our security."
