“The seven countries named in the executive order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror” — a fact completely ignored in the establishment propaganda media.
“To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. This is not about religion — this is about terror and keeping our country safe.”
It just so happens that the adherents of a religious ideology are the ones who are bent on destroying this country.

President Trump lashed out on Sunday over those challenging his controversial executive order temporarily banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
“America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citizens and border,” Trump said in a statement issued late Sunday afternoon. “America has always been the land of the free and home of the brave.

“The seven countries named in the executive order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror,” Trump continued. “To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting.

He added: “We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days. I have tremendous feeling for the people involved in this horrific humanitarian crisis in Syria. My first priority will always be to protect and serve our country, but as President I will find ways to help all those who are suffering.”…
