President Donald Trump's original call for a halt in Muslim immigration appears to have been deleted from his campaign website Monday.
Trump's December 2015 statement, which called for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," was scrubbed from the site shortly after White House press secretary Sean Spicer dismissed an ABC News reporter's question about the now-stalled ban.

“If this White House is no longer calling this a Muslim ban, as the president did initially, why does the president’s website still explicitly call for ‘preventing Muslim immigration’ and it says ‘Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,’” ABC News' Cecilia Vega asked, according to The Hill.
Spicer responded by saying that he isn't aware of what the campaign website says. He went on explain that the travel ban is a "vetting system to keep Americans safe."
Trump signed a revised travel ban in March after his first executive order was halted by a federal judge. Then on March 15, a federal judge in Hawaii blocked the second ban, according to The Hill.
