Trump confirms plans to expand travel ban

Source: The Hill


President Trump on Tuesday confirmed he plans to expand his controversial travel ban that bars citizens of certain countries from entering the United States.

Trump told The Wall Street Journal in an interview on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that he is looking to add more countries, though he would not say which ones.

The president's comments confirm an Associated Press report from earlier this month.

Any additions or alterations to the travel ban would draw immediate legal challenges.

11. Don't forget the country of Greenland.

Of course, Greenland isn't a country, but don't confuse Fat Donnie with the facts.

I'm thinking he's eventually going to expel from our country all citizens born in Slovenia, even if they are naturalized citizens.

Watch out, Melania. Expulsion is a lot cheaper than a divorce...

4. Typical Trump failure...

He initially made a big splashy statement announcing this abomination stating that it would be in effect until he "figured out what the hell is going on"...now going on the 5th year of this shit, just how long DOES it take for that piece of Samsonite to "figure it out"?

He initially released a statement Dec. 7, 2015, about his proposal: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”

5. Corollary thought - no accident in the timing of today's "announcement"

Just like the resurfacing of the stories about "caravans of migrants" approaching the US border (or trying to reach the border), this is Trump playbook 101, page 1.

The fact there is ANY traction left on any of his bullshit speaks volumes of the mental capacity of his followers, fans and sycophants. EVERY single Trump supporter is dead to me.

10. Let me guess...

These are countries that haven’t given Trump any money for his reinstallation campaign, offered up dirt on Joe Biden or stayed in any of his hotels.

12. It just includes Nigeria, a country of 200 million people and the world's 30th largest economy

(or higher, by some rankings; it's bigger than South Africa's, which is a member of the G20).

So no big deal, then; just the 7th largest population in the world, and a country not at war, though it has a terrorism problem. Which the USA is meant to be supporting the government about, not punishing it. And what the hell he has against Tanzania, god alone knows. It's not even adjacent to Somalia. The latest 3 Guardian stories about Tanzania are about lions, rhinos and trees.
