President Donald Trump is expected to sign an executive order tomorrow that will temporarily stop the flow of refugees from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.. These are countries mainly made up of Islamic countries. President Trump is making good on a lot of his promises already.
On the campaign trail, Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S. and for “extreme vetting” of refugees without providing an explanation for how that would differ from existing stringent government reviews of refugee applications.
Syria has the lowest proportion of Muslim residents among the countries Reuters’ sources cite, at 87 percent, according to the CIA World Fact Book. The others are more than 96 percent Muslim.
Those countries were all included as regional threats in last year’s Worldwide Threat Assessment, a document produced annually by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence that’s considered the intelligence community’s general assessment of threats to U.S. national security. Other predominantly Muslim countries included in the threat report that weren’t specified by Reuters’ sources include Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt and Pakistan. The report also identifies terrorism threats in places like North Africa and Europe.
In less than a week, President Trump has cancelled TPP, cut funding for Planned Parenthood overseas, got 2 more large manufacturers to agree to a total investment of 8 billion dollar, plus an entire litany of fulfilling his promises. So, how is Trump different from Obama and Clinton? Energy. We saw it out on the campaign trail and now we are seeing it in the oval office.
