NBC News under fire for misleading tweets about Trump chief of staff's answer on Muslim registry

The govt already has plenty of registrys,sex offender, terrorists,criminal records ect.They don't need one just for muslims but anyone traveling to areas of the world that are known to promote violence against America or our allies needs to be kept track of.
