Muslim Ban?

Chris counters Rayne’s previous article about President Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’

By Christopher Cook  / LifeAtStart.com Reporter

On January 27, 2017 President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order temporarily blocking travel from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. The suspension lasts 120 days or approximately 4 months. This ban is to keep out “those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place violent ideologies over American law”.

While these countries are populated with a majority of Muslims they do not make up most of the world’s Muslim population. In fact all these countries together consist of about 12% of the world’s Muslim population.

People are taking this out of control by calling Trump a racist for signing this order. To further put these claims to rest we need to look at the Obama Administration. In December 2015 these exact seven countries were on an executive order signed by President Obama preventing the travel to America from these countries without a Visa. The only difference between these orders is President Trump’s order bans all travel, visa included.
