Former Trump advisor denies Muslims will be banned
Donald Trump's former campaign manager has denied it was suggested that Muslims should and would be banned from entering the US if Trump became President.
Corey Lewandowski stressed: "that's not what we said" when questioned about the president-elect's controversial comments that there should be a "total and complete ban" on Muslims entering the US.
Mr Lewandowski insisted instead that stringent rules would be applied to those applying for US citizenship.
Lewandowski, who was fired as Trump's campaign manager in June after footage emerged of him shoving a journalist, also resigned from his job at news channel CNN on Friday. He says he's ready and waiting for a call from Trump, saying: "I would do anything if he asked me to."
