The Muslim ban and the United States ???? How will this effect the rest of the world when the US can't even agree themselves what it right and what isn't ????? For those who don't know, Trump has signed an executive order which makes it so that Muslims - And only Muslims - From seven countries (Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen) are banned from entering the United States. This includes any Muslim citizen of these countries, including green card holders and people with dual citizenship, as long as their second citizenship isn't American. In response to the ban, a protest was organized in New York's JFK airport, and protests soon began in several different airports around the United States. A judicial ruling in New York has since overturned the Muslim Ban, but immigration officials at the airports are currently refusing to follow the judicial order,

Little donnie is a 3rd grader with a bag full of hand grenades, walking down a school hall, tossing one in each room he passes and slamming the door behind, while patting himself on the back for 'shaking things up'. Truth is he just leaves a swath of destruction daily.

So I take it this includes the Saudi royal family then? No private jets in and out of the country? I also guess that means America's secret forces can stop their missions in and out of the Middle East, withdraw from all oil-based economies abroad and send their army back home? So that's the Mexicans and Muslims, while black people are shot down by their own police every week. Who's next?

Looks like the world´s gone mad or at least a small part on the other side of the Atlantic. The only thing Trump is doing is spreading hatred which is a sure guarantee that people will retaliate. He won´t stop terrorism by banning people from entering the country as most of them are probably there already and have been for years. History has shown us that it only takes one man to destroy half the world and a load of idiots to follow him. Let´s see if the world is a better place this time next year? Don´t think so somehow. This is so wrong in so many ways . It's not about protecting Americans when you take working people and disrupt there lives where they can't work and must pack up everything and leave. I hope trump is impeached for this lack of thinking and to quick to judge. I hope other countries ban US citizens from visiting also. According to Bloomberg, the list of banned countries doesn’t include Muslim-majority nations where the Trump Organization has done business or pursued potential deals. This includes golf courses in the UAE as well as two luxury towers in Turkey.

Trump and his axemen haven't thought this through very well...I bet they haven't foreseen the disruption which will be caused when various international airlines and ships can't operate because many of them are crewed by people from the banned countries.

I'm fairly sure I read somewhere that the USA gets quite a lot of scholarship funding from one of the countries in the middle east?

I'm pretty sure you are correct on that point Andy. The consequences of this dumb move will have far reaching implications...many of them yet to surface...people on flights which stop over or transit ports in the US, even one UK Govt member who has two sons at Uni in America won't be able to visit them because he was born in the wrong country...the list goes on!



It also has some very expensive consequences for industry and trade for the country as well. eg. Boeing Corp was shortly due to begin delivering a large number of new aircraft to one of the affected ME countries...Airbus are said to be watching very closely!

It is all about the money, of course, otherwise, Saudi Arabia and Egypt nationals would also be banned (not that that would make this more palatable to anyone with any amount of common sense.

Aaaahhhh! Common sense....a commodity which is very conspicuous by it's absence in this instance.

I see the decision has been reversed. I loved it. Finally an established bully answered to the elected bully in the same tone of voice. "No one is above the law ... Not even the President" (above of law of who?) Well, it looks like actor DeNiro was right: "For a bully, you have to respond in his own way."
