Reince Priebus: We Aren’t Going To Apologize For Keeping America Safe

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus told NBC’s Chuck Todd that the Trump Administration wouldn’t apologize for its executive action to restrict people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

President Trump’s executive action sparked outrage over the weekend with protests popping up across the nation.

“The fact of the matter is 325,000 people from foreign countries came into the United States yesterday, and 109 people were detained for further questioning. Most of those people were moved out. We’ve got a couple dozen more that remain,” Priebus told Todd. “If they’re folks that shouldn’t be in this country, they’re going to be detained. So apologize for nothing here.”
