The Ethics: America needs to send a message that Islamist hatred for the West will not be tolerated. ISIS publicly announced its target of at least 5000 Jihadists to be among the refugees. Why are Arab Countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran not accepting Refugees from their co-religionists?

The Fantasy: “There have been zero fatal terror attacks on U.S. soil since 1975 by immigrants from the seven Muslim-majority countries President Donald Trump targeted with immigration bans on Friday.” The idea is to keep it that way. There have been numerous attacks in Europe. The Obama Administration (Not Trump) identified these 7 countries as being a threat of exporting terrorists, but did nothing about that threat.

The Security: “Trump just gave ISIS and other terrorist organizations the recruiting message of their dreams.” Wouldn’t the US invasion of Iraq, the Obama-ordered extra-judicial murder of Osama Bin Laden, and the US Air Force attacks on ISIS bases have pretty much established that already?

The Politics: “the support he might have received from those Americans who didn’t vote for him?” You will have to prove such an unlikely person exists: A Clintonite who gives Trump the time of day? I don’t believe it. The rioting in the streets started immediately after the election. Nothing Trump did, or didn’t do would make any difference to the behaviour of these Haters.

The Art of the Bad Deal: None of this paragraph makes a lick of sense, so I can’t refute this incoherent nonsense. Semantically null.
