    Donald Trump, presumptive Republican presidential nominee, gestures as he speaks to members of the media at Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeen, U.K, on June 25, 2016.

    Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump said it “wouldn’t bother” him if a Scottish Muslim came to the United States, NBC News reported. 

    Speaking to reporters from his Aberdeen golf course Saturday, he revised remarks that the proposed prohibition would be a blanket ban and is more a question of proper vetting, with emphasis placed on certain countries. 

    "I don't want people coming in — I don't want people coming in from certain countries," Trump clarified to The Daily Mail while also telling several passing golfers to play through the 18th hole. "I don't want people coming in from the terror countries. You have terror countries! I don't want them, unless they're very, very strongly vetted." 

    When asked about which countries are “terror countries,” Trump responded “They’re pretty well-decided. All you have to do is look!” 

    The Trump campaign did not immediately clarify whether the Muslim ban still applied to all Muslims or if it now focused on "terror countries" and the vetting process.
