CNN commentator Kayleigh McEnany rejected the idea that Donald Trump’s call to prevent Muslim immigrants from entering the United States without investigating them is tantamount to a ban on the entry of Jews into the country.

Participating in a debate with New York magazine’s Andrew Sullivan on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” on Monday, McEnany said, “We don’t have a problem with Jewish people right now. We have a problem with radical Islam.”

She was responding to Cooper’s interjection on behalf of Sullivan’s argument, posing the question, “So… if a candidate was saying, ‘Don’t allow Jewish people in the country,’ would that be acceptable?”
