When Kathy Grimes heard Donald Trump had proposed a ban on Muslim immigrants, she didn’t believe it — even when shown the press release.
“It is inflammatory. It’s polarizing. Islam is supposed to be the religion of peace,” said Grimes, a 67-year-old California resident who came to Trump’s rally Monday here while in the area for vacation. Perhaps, she said, one of his staff members got the details wrong in writing the statement.
But when Trump himself read the release, word for word, to a standing-room-only rally aboard the USS Yorktown, much of the crowd stood and applauded.
