Trump’s campaign for president is built on the same win-at-all-costs, no-second-guessing confidence that made him billions in real estate and a star of reality television. Yet in a recent interview with The AP, the GOP frontrunner displayed rare _ if fleeting _ moments of humility and introspection. "I think I could lose a state, sure," Trump said of the first three states to vote in next year’s presidential primaries.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he is calling for a “complete and total shutdown” on Muslims entering the United States.

Trump says in a statement released by his campaign Monday that his proposal comes in response to the level of hatred among “large segments of the Muslim population” toward Americans.

Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski says Trump’s proposed ban would apply to “everybody,” including Muslims seeking immigration visas as well as tourists seeking to enter the country.
