'We're at war – get it through your head'
"We're at war — get it through your head," Trump said repeatedly during an interview with host Chris Cuomo on CNN's "New Day."
Trump stressed throughout the media blitz that his plan to prevent Muslims from entering the U.S. was "temporary."
Trump sought to clarify on ABC's "Good Morning America" that American Muslims living abroad could return to the U.S. When asked if Trump's proposal applied to U.S. citizens living abroad, a Trump representative had told The Hill on Monday that Trump's proposal applied to "everyone."
George Stephanopoulos also asked Trump during the ABC interview whether the candidate was bothered by the increasing number of comparisons to Hitler, to which Trump responded, "No."
Trump's interview on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" turned combative when co-host Joe Scarborough tried to interject a question while the real estate mogul continued to speak during the phone call-in interview. Scarborough threatened to send the interview to a break if Trump didn't allow him to ask a question. After Trump didn't relent, Scarborough instructed producers to cut to commercials.
After the break, Trump discussed comparisons to former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Questioned about whether he was proposing internment camps like the ones FDR created for the Japanese, Trump said, "I am not proposing that."
