Defending order placing a 90-day pause on immigration Donald Trump says ‘Muslim ban’ reports are false

President Trump provoked a backlash after signing an executive order banning people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from traveling to the US.

Denying the Muslim ban Trump said it is “not a Muslim ban” as it is “falsely” reported by the media.

He said.”This is not about religion this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that is not affected by this order”.

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 a 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,” he said in a statement.

Hundreds of demonstrators chanted “No ban, no wall, a sanctuary for all!” and “No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here!” while gathering outside the airport’s Terminal Four arrivals section.

In a statement, the Foreign Office said the executive order only applies to people traveling from one of the seven named countries and clarified that the ban would not affect dual- nationality citizens unless they are traveling from the countries on the ban list.
Trump slammed Senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham in a series of tweet for being critical of his immigration policies. who he accused of trying to start World War III.

“At this very moment, American troops are fighting side-by-side with our Iraqi partners to defeat ISIL. But this executive order bans Iraqi pilots from coming to military bases in Arizona to fight our common enemies,” the two Senators said.
