Minutes after Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked by a reporter, "If this White House is no longer calling [the travel ban] a ‘Muslim ban’ … why does the president’s website still explicitly call for ‘preventing Muslim immigration’?” the call was removed from the site. It originally read: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”
