Here are the main highlights from President Donald Trump’s speech:

HealthCare – Trump endorses Republican legislation to replace the Obamacare healthcare law, but it faces a rebellion by conservative groups and lawmakers who denounce it suggesting that the new plan will be less affordable.

Travel Order – The state of Hawaii is the first state to speak up and contest the new executive order that restricts travel from six Muslim-majority countries. The state will ask federal court for an emergency halt to the order.

Wiretapping – The chairman of the US House of Representatives Intelligence committee says he has seen no evidence to support Trump’s allegation that he was wiretapped by then-President Barack Obama.

North Korea – US will be deploying the anti-missile defense system in South Korea as scheduled, despite angry opposition from China.

Trump’s revised immigration ban

#Trump #President #US #immigrationBan #Muslim

President Trump signed a new 90-day ban on the issuance of new visas for citizens of six Muslim-majority countries. Also, the refugee program will be suspended temporarily while also reducing the cap of 110,000 refugees a year (set by Obama) to 50,000 refugees a year.

The six countries include Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Syria and Yemen, sames as the countries in the first travel ban, excluding Iraq. The new guidelines are far more specific and block the issuance of only new visas (this also includes people who need to reapply for their visa).

The order also details specific sets of people who would be able to apply for case-by-case waivers to the order, including those previously admitted to the United States for “a continuous period of work, study, or other long-term activity,” those with “significant business or professional obligations” and those seeking to visit or live with family.

Today, we have a fight against Muslims.

Do we have a fight against Muslims?

So is every Muslim a terrorist?

Do you know which of these are Muslims:

  • Dr. Mehmet Oz (Host of The Dr Oz Show)
  • Shaquille O’Neal
  • Fareed Zakaria (Hosts his own show on CNN)
  • Ellen Burstyn (An Emmy winning actress)
  • Aasif Mandvi (Actor and Comedian)
  • Akon (You know him, cmmon!)
  • Dave Chappelle (Comedian)
  • Ice Cube (Rapper and ‘Law and Order SVU’ star)
  • T-Pain (Rapper)
  • Muhammad Ali (Boxing Champion)
  • Zayn Malik (Singer)
  • AND SO MANY MORE…

Stop with the immigration ban. That is not the right way to fight terrorism. That is more like running away from the real problem.
