San Bernardino's residents are still coming to terms with the mass shooting by a Muslim couple that killed 14 people a week ago.

Despite the still-raw emotions many aren't backing calls by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.

"Donald Trump is in it for the publicity and I don't think he's really sincere to me, that's my opinion," said Gay Wallace, a San Bernardino resident.

"America was not founded on that kind of principle, America is a land for everyone," according to San Bernardino resident Jeffrey Moscher.

"I don't vote for him and I approve of some of the things he says and I approve of some of the things he don't say because he talks a lot of smack," said Araceli Baez.

Trump's comments have drawn fire on social media, not least from his political rivals and opponents.

President Barack Obama on Sunday urged Americans in a televised address to avoid scape-goating of Islam as a religion.
