TRUMP: Targeting terrorists

Print Article

Rodney Joki presented an open letter to Pres. Trump wondering why he excluded Egypt and Saudi Arabia from his list of dangerous Islamic states. Obviously I’m not a spokesman for Pres. Trump, but I would like to help Mr. Joki in any way I can.

I went on the internet to see exactly which seven countries were excluded from entry into the U.S. I couldn’t believe what I was witnessing on reports from CNN and MSNBC. They were both trying to give the impression that ALL Muslims were being targeted as not being able to come to the U.S., even though Pres. Trump has excluded only the seven. More than 40 Muslim countries may still come to the U.S.; they are NOT on the exclusion list.

Pres. Trump proposed the seven countries be stopped from immigration for 90 days until proper vetting can be established, from a list that Pres. Obama had made up. The reason is that these seven countries have little or no vetting as to who they are, or as to what their intentions are in our country.

Saudi Arabia and Egypt are vetting their people and working with the U.S. in stopping ISIS. But since the 9th CIRCUS court in San Francisco has made that a moot point, any ISIS member that wants to, has obviously already taken advantage of the lift on vetting people coming here to do us harm.
