Whoopi wonders if America is just like the Taliban because of Trump's election

Actress and "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg questioned Tuesday just how similar President Donald Trump's policies are to those of the Taliban.

"Let me ask you now. We have a leader who has repeatedly demeaned women, wants to defund organizations that benefit women, calling on the media to shut up, specifically wants to give preferential treatment based on religion — are these values really much different than the Taliban's?" Goldberg said during Tuesday's morning show.

When pressed on if she was specifically referring to Trump's values, Goldberg said, "Well, the values that we are listening to," as she pointed specifically to the language in Trump's executive order that temporarily bans refuges and visa-holders from seven Muslim-majority countries.

Goldberg also criticized the Trump administration for White House adviser Steve Bannon's advice for the media to "keep its mouth shut" as well as Trump's promise to prioritize Christian refugees.

"Here's the thing — we have a constitution that says these are the things we don't do, this is what makes us different from everybody else," Goldberg said. "Nobody tells our media to shut up and just take it. That's not America. That is the Taliban."
