President Donald Trump explains why the #MuslimBan was so Sudden



In a series of tweets, President Donald Trump has explained the miscommunications about the Immigration Order he passed a few days ago.

According to him, only about 109 people were actually detained and held for questioning. He also stated that the reason the ban was so sudden was to avoid people getting into a rush to enter the US and thereby allowing “bad dudes” enter the country.

See his tweets below.

    I have to give this to Trump I.e he is keeping his very word. It is the ones that chose not to believe and thought he would not do many of the things he claimed while on the campaign trail, are “certified idiots” as my sister calls them. Someone has told you who he is but you choose not to believe him….well that’s on you not on him.

    The one that vex me the most is one particular individual (Nigerian-American) that is a Trump fan, who changed her Profile picture from Trump on the day the ban was put in place but yesterday posted a none sense interview on Facebook about Trump’s supposed “spiritual journey”. First, in the midst of the situation we are currently facing if that is what you choose to focus on then it shows where our hearts truly are. We are more focused on religious speaks than concern for our country. What does that say about our faith???

    Secondly, anyone can come up with a story (especially when he is well aware that the people that got him into this position are majorly Christians. So of course he will come up with a story to pander to your itchy ears). The real question we should be asking ourselves is, does his actions and life, genuinely reflect the type of spiritual journey he claims??? If the first church were moved by words we will not have the story of Ananias and Sapphira in the Bible. The true measure of a man/woman has always been by their character. One thing I can at least give Trump is that he has so far, kept his word and that is a character plus for him in my book. Although, I obviously do not agree with MANY of his policies.

      I don’t think anyone thought he wouldn’t do what he said. That part should be for his supporters when his actions start affecting them, negatively. Like when they start losing certain benefits (insurance, Medicare & medicaid, the Govt pay freeze, the private servers he’s using, not going after Hillary for the private servers brouhaha, etc)

      The majority of folks know he will do what he says which is why they are on him like white on rice ready to protest in cases like this. It’s also why he did not win the popular vote. What people are surprised by is how blatantly and overreaching he is being. It’s common to say anything to be elected, but once you are win the seat and have facts you weren’t privy to before, there should be an adjustment. At least your legal team should vet your executive actions

    I love the way he loves America, filter the bad ones with everything you’ve got once you have the power to. I’m just weak of Nigerians that are literally getting involved and condemning him, like this country needs a firm hand like trumps. Imagine how unsafe Abuja of all places is right now. P.s please Bella Naija do a post on the happenings in Abuja. You can reach me through my email address. 2 girls and a guy were kidnaped in Wuse 2 that’s like the city center they were dressed like SARS officers, now they are gone to only God knows where how will they be found. How come Chloe’s cupcakes does not have a camera in its surroundings at least the faces of these men would be made public. Our president is in the U.K. Taking bloody pictures. We need to stand up, Nigeria need to get better by force seriously enough of the one day e go better or God dey. God will not come down from heaven. Let’s stand up

      The problem is that this only “looks” like it’s fixing the problem but it’s not. The issue of terrorism is not like stones hidden among beans. The terrorists are also the beans sef. Terrorism is not only people with middle eastern ancestry, it is also white men shooting up schools and churches.

    To be fair, he did say he will do these things in his campaign so that should count for accountability, Our leaders can learn a thing or two.
    I am not against this Muslim ban tbh and I am not a fan of President Trump. I just believe these Muslims should be hit where it hurts, if truly Mr Trumps’s ban reaches home, Muslims the world over can come together and prune out the bad eggs soiling their so called “religion of peace” Infact other European countries should adopt this kinds of harsh policies, to better tackle terrorism the world over.
    Please let’s not pretend like y’al “good muslims” don’t know these people, they are your brothers, your husbands and your sons, start calling them out or the world will stay woke to your terrorism and you guys won’t be able to go anywhere anymore.

      very well said, if you are a strategic person you will like its policies, His policies will work but may need to be reviewed and tweaked in a year or two years time dependent on the outcome. He hasn’t done anything bad, we need a trump in Africa, we need a trump in Nigeria … Well Done Mr President Trump, raw Entrepreneur..managing the country like a business 🙂

      That’s a wicked thing to say. Do all Muslims know the faces behind Boko Haram? Are mum’s not in our army fighting against Boko Haram? Do all Nigerians know the 419 guys on the US and elsewhere? But no one instituted a ban against Nigerians for their 419 activities oh.

      It’s not as if these countries know who are committing these crimes and they are hiding them. You know those nations have lost people too right?

      I meant Muslims. Are Muslims not in our army fighting against Boko Haram?

    Trump is an hypocrite, why did he refuse to ban united arab Emirates ,Turkey and rest of some muslim countries where americans were killed.

      Which Americans were killed in the UAE? That is the safest country in the Middle East. Safer than Kuwait, Bahrain and even Qatar.

      Loveth….Ban was imposed based on list drawn by previous adminstration. You engage intel and National security agencies before these kinda bans. If the countries you mentioned were on Obama’s list, trust me they would be affected. USA is not Nigeria. Also , after BUSH invaded Iraq and destroyed it, one of the first things Obama did when he came in power was to impose a travel ban of 6 months on Iraqis coming to US. I did not see protests then bcos I assume Iraqis should’ve been priority cos US destroyed their country in the first place. Someone on this thread also mentioned dubai as safe Arab nation and may I add the islamic holy land of mecca is in the Oil rich and safe Saudi Arabia, Qatar( abt to host World Cup) , Oman, Kuwait etc are all rich Arab countries. Why are their doors not open too to accomodate their own brothers in their time of need? Why must it be the US that the Arab and muslim world so despise?
      I can deduct one thing from all these things. It is the fact that ppl do not like the character and person of Donald Trump and still very emotional towards the liberal democrats. Its just a week and all hell is broke lose yet this policy is not new or something his predecesor never did. A president has the right to make decisions of national security and it must be respected. Even Jimmy Carter had a msulim ban .Iran was the main country then. Hate him or love him, but the policies of the US must be respected to their own good or detriment.

      I don’t hate Trump, I just wish he would realize that there are more checks and balances to govt than there is to running a company.

      Why do people go to the US? They built themselves that way ever since WW2. Y’know, a place for the oppressed kinda thing. Also, it truly is a land of opportunities, and it is a relatively big and safe country compared to the ones you mentioned. And people who can afford to go, go to places where they can be safe.

    When the Nazis came for the communists,
    I remained silent;
    I was not a communist.

    When they locked up the social democrats,
    I remained silent;
    I was not a social democrat.

    When they came for the trade unionists,
    I did not speak out;
    I was not a trade unionist.

    When they came for the Jews,
    I remained silent;
    I wasn’t a Jew.

    When they came for me,
    there was no one left to speak out.

      If you read through the quote and honestly think I’m advocating for something one sided, then your thinking is flawed.
