"cNN’s Poppy Harlow asked Trump adviser and former U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) a couple of pointed questions about Pres. Trump’s ban on Muslim refugees on Saturday, then fact-checked him live on the air when he tried to fudge his answers.

“What data can you point to that justifies that these seven nations have a tie to U.S. terror attacks or a higher incidence of bringing terror to this country?” she asked.

“I think maybe the idea that I would say, the evidence is that the countries themselves don’t really have a standard that would preclude enemies of the United States from emigrating here,” Kingston said. “These are not countries that are known to love the United States of America.”

“So you say these are not countries that love the United States and therefore this is justified,” Harlow said. So, what about Russia?”

“Well, I think in Russia — you know, there’s a lot of other Islamic countries and other countries that aren’t always fond of America, but I don’t think you have necessarily the concerns and the vigilance that you need if you’re talking about Sudan.”"
