Transcript for Kerry: Trump's Comments on Muslims 'Endanger National Security'
Donald Trump's comments about banning muslims' entry in the United States. How have his comments affected America's standard around the world? Well, it doesn't endanger national security. Because it exhibits an attitude by one American about a willingness to discriminate against a religion. I mean, that is against our constitution and it's against who we are as Americans. We have all kinds of ways of putting protections in to the programs by which people come into our nation. But to outright ban people because they belong to one particular religion, that's just stunningly contrary to the fundamental values of our country, which was built on tolerance. Where the president speaks from to deliver the state of union, inscribed in the panel is tolerance, and it seems to me that Mr. Trump is totally without recognition of the true American spirit and values, and certainly tolerance. Thank you, Mr. Secretary.
