US President Donald Trump has issued an executive order banning Muslims from Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Iraq, in what is the greatest bombshell of his first two weeks in office.
Trump, now likened to a raging rhino, has also suspended the United States’ refugee system for a period of 120 days. Mr Trump says his “extreme vetting” system will help “keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the US”.
The ban completely suspends the United States’ Syrian refugee programme, which accepted 12,486 Syrians in 2016. It also gives preference to accepting Christian refugees from the Middle East over Muslim refugees. And it reduces the cap on the total number of refugees allowed to enter the US in 2017 from 110,000 to just 50,000.
They voted for him and he is doing the job. Watch out for rhino charges.
