Donald Trump’s team has removed the statement on his website to ban all Muslims from the US.
On the same night that millions of votes were pouring in for the real estate mogul turned politician, the page linking to his December statement regarding a temporary and complete Muslim has been removed.
The page now redirects to his a 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.
A statement calling for a ban on Muslims entering the United States has been removed from Donald Trump’s campaign website.
The Trump team appears to have removed the statement, in which Mr Trump said on December 7, 2015: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.
“According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population.”
