Senator Bob Corker, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, appeared on "This Week with George Stephanopolous" this morning to discuss the presumptive Republican nominee for president's positions on foreign relations. Senator Corker admitted that he would not support Mr. Trump's ban on Muslim's into this country.
