Josh Earnest: Trump’s Toxic Rhetoric Is Disqualifying

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest addressed Donald Trump’s proposal on temporarily banning Muslims from entering the U.S. at a news conference on Tuesday. He said Trump’s rhetoric is toxic and offensive, calling out Republican presidential candidates for not condemning the billionaire.

“What he said is disqualifying and any Republican who’s too fearful of the Republican base to admit it has no business serving as president either,” the press secretary said.
