Donald Trump defended his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States on Tuesday, which ended in his disqualification from the US presidential election.

According to the Toronto Sun, Trump compared his idea to the detainment of Japanese-Americans after the bombing of Pearl Harbor during World War II, saying he is no worse than President Roosevelt.

In a report by CNN, White House press secretary Josh Earnest says every president must make an oath to preserve, protect and defend the US Constitution, and Trump would not qualify in this case.

Earnest added that any Republicans who stand by their pledge to support Trump is in itself disqualifying as well.
