WASHINGTON -

Presidential hopeful Donald Trump held a pearl harbor rally Tuesday night in South Carolina aboard the U.S.S. Yorktown and read a statement that his campaign released which calls for a complete shutdown of Muslims entering the US.  

Trump said the ban should be implemented "until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses."

Trump's statement comes just days after two radical Muslims shot and killed 14 people in California. The White House says that his statement on banning Muslim arrivals is contrary to U.S. values. Trump's proposal was quickly condemned by other Republican and Democratic presidential candidates.

But Trump says there is no other choice but to deny Muslims entry into America. 

Meanwhile, in response to the statement, a Florida mayor says he's banning Donald Trump from his city after the Republican presidential candidate called for the U.S. to stop Muslims from entering the country.
    
St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman tweeted Monday that he was banning Trump "until we fully understand the dangerous threat posed by all Trumps."
    
The Tampa Bay Times reports the mayor's jab was retweeted more than 1,200 times in about an hour.
