The question and answer session ended with a question about discrimination against Muslims.

“There is no religious test for getting into the United States of America,” said Rep. Cramer. “There never has been. There wasn’t in the travel ban. It has preference to religious minorities *Booing* There is not a religious test.”

Cramer say there’s has been an increase in hate crimes towards Muslims in America but that is not the coming from the government.
