On Sunday the former national security adviser Susan Rice attacked President Trump over his recent tweets about his “Travel ban.” During an interview on “ABC This Week” Rice said:
“There’s really no evidence to suggest that by banning Muslims or banning Muslims from a particular set of six countries, that we would make ourselves here in the United States safer. And that’s, I believe, one of the major reasons why the courts thus far have been very skeptical of the travel ban. “I think there’s a very real risk that by stigmatizing and isolating Muslims from particular countries and Muslims in general,” she said, “that we alienate the very communities here in the United States whose cooperation we most need to detect and prevent these homegrown extremists from being able to carry out attacks.”
“They need to feel that they are valued and part of this challenge that we face together as a nation,”

These comments from Rice are following the President recent comments on Twitter claiming the attacks in the UK are why we need a travel ban.
