ST. PAUL — The St. Paul City Council has voted to condemn GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s comments about Muslims, refugees and immigrants.

The resolution passed by a 6-1 vote Wednesday. Council member Dan Bostrom cast the lone “no” vote. Bostrom says he may not like what Trump says, but he would not try to limit his right to say it.

Council member Dai Thao proposed the resolution. Thao originally wanted the council to say that Trump was not welcome in St. Paul. But the Star Tribune reports Thao amended his resolution to remove any reference to a Trump ban.
