Trump bans Muslims – unless their nation does business with him!

I wonder how many “deplorables” are aware of this?

President Trump’s most recent executive order effectively bans citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for at least 90 days — but some Muslim countries were spared from the order’s blacklist, even though they have deep-seated ties to terrorism.

Conspicuously, records show Trump holds major business interests in several of the countries excluded from the list, while he doesn’t hold any stakes in the countries on it.

Friday’s executive order, signed at the Pentagon, suspends the issuing of U.S. visas or travel permits to people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.

Not a single American was killed by citizens from any of those countries between 1975 and 2015, according to statistics tallied by the conservative-leaning CATO Institute.

And whuddya know – it’s already being enforced with the worst possible effect:

Within hours of President Trump’s executive order limiting immigration from Muslim countries, green card and visa holders were already being blocked from getting on flights to the U.S.

The Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee said people who had already landed were being sequestered at airports and told they have to return to their point of origin.

People who were still in the air as of 10:30 p.m. likely face being blocked at the airport when their planes land, he said.

“If they are already on the plane, they will not be able to enter,” he said.

“We had a few folks land who landed right around the time the order was issued, who were permitted to go through. I guess it was the luck of the draw.”

Customs officials said the number of people who arrived here and were turned back was not immediately available Friday night.

“It takes time to collect all the numbers,” a spokesman said.

[Abed Ayoub of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee] said he sees the move as a bellwether of worse things to come.

“We see the social reaction when the government rubberstamps this kind of thing,” he said. “We see increased violence and hate crimes.”

      I guess we’ll find out, if enough of those “dishonest” news agencies make enough noise about it.

    The socio-pathetic gibbon has banned people from countries that not one of whom participated in 9/11.

    I am really not liking about 63 million republican voters, right about now…I will get to those non-voters and third party voters, later…but right now, I am reserving my unbridled dislike for these folks…at this time….

    Let Trump build a few hotels at discount rates and all the “Muslim issues” will disappear like magic.

      But you can’t have gold faucets in a budget hotel.

    Trump may be crazy, but he’s not stupid.
