Trump called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” in the wake of Islamist attacks on Paris and San Bernardino.

Ryan told House Republicans that presidential candidate Donald Trump’s comments on Muslims were “not who we are” as a Republican party.
On Sunday Sarah Palin lashed out at Paul Ryan for his attacks on Trump.
Palin said Ryan had a chance to resist Obama’s plans to bring Syrian refugees to America but he chose to fully fund Obama’s plans.
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin blasted House Speaker Paul Ryan for his gutless reaction on radical Islamic terrorism — and for his criticisms of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump on Islam — during an exclusive interview with Stephen K. Bannon on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM.
Ryan has barely condemned the terrorist attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando killed 50 and landed another 53 in the hospital.
“Paul Ryan is out of touch with his constituents,” said the former GOP vice presidential candidate. “Those who have put their faith in with their sacred vote.”
Leaders like Ryan have not come up with the plan or the will to confront the threat, she said. “What is the number of lives lost before our leadership will wake up and deal with the problem?”
The problem is Radical Islam, she said.
“It’s a deadly ideology. It is embraced by people who lie,” she said. “They will strike again. They will continue.”
Palin said Trump was right when he called out the federal government’s inability to properly screen immigrants and refugees from Muslim countries. But, instead of siding with Trump, Ryan disparaged him.
The Speaker had the chance to stop President Barack Obama’s plans to bring in Syrian refugees before systems were in place to protect the American people, but he chose to fully fund Obama’s plans.
Ryan did not campaign saying he would become Obama’s lapdog, but that is what he has become, Palin said.
