Donald Trump's statement on temporary and complete Muslim ban has been removed from his website

It seems Donald Trump’s team removed the hate statement against Muslims he made from his website to ban all Muslims from the US. On the ballots counting night, when Trump was leading ahead of his counterpart Hillary Clinton, the page linking to his December statement regarding a temporary and complete Muslim ban has been removed.

The page now redirects to his page encouraging voters to donate to his campaign. The page was available on the morning of the election on 8 November, according to online caches. But the redirected was added later the same night.

Caches like the Wayback Machine work by crawling websites intermittently and making a copy of what it finds there. As such, it's not possible to say exactly what time the redirect was added, but only that the change had been made between those two times it was crawled.

Mr Trump and his allies have consistently defended the ban, insisting the measure was about Americans’ "safety" and not about discriminating against religion. Videos and speeches defending the ban remain on the Trump campaign website. It is not the first time the Trump team has scrubbed pages from its websites. After speculation rose that Melania Trump did not complete her university degree, her biography page was taken down and started to redirect to Mr Trump’s golf course. Mr Trump won the presidential election on 8 November with 279 electoral votes.
