Philly Mayor Would Like To Ban Donald Trump From City

Mic Smith

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter wants to ban Donald Trump from the city after the Republican presidential candidate called for a national ban on Muslims entering the U.S.

Nutter calls Trump's proposal "ignorant" and says if he had the power, he'd ban Trump from the city. He saysPhiladelphia doesn't have "any room for that kind of stupidity."

On Monday, Trump proposed stopping Muslims from coming to America "until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses." His suggestion was quickly condemned by other Republican and Democratic presidential candidates.

The mayor of St. Petersburg, Florida, tweeted earlier Tuesday that he also would ban Trump from his city.
