Iowa City, IA – Congressman Dave Loebsack today called on the Republican Party of Iowa to denounce Donald Trump and his most recent hateful comments towards Muslims. Earlier today, Trump called for the “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”

“Once again Donald Trump, who is leading most polls of Republican caucus goers in Iowa, has made comments that are beyond the pale. Millions of families have come to the United States throughout our history seeking a better life. It’s these families, of every race and religion that make up the fabric of our society – and it’s one of the things that makes our country great. It is past time that the Republican Party of Iowa makes it clear that Mr. Trump’s fearmongering has no place in its party. His comments are outrageous, offensive, and have no place in civil discourse.”
