Trump: Travel ban should be 'far larger, tougher and more specific'

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump said Friday that his administration’s travel ban “should be far larger, tougher and more specific” than it is, seemingly blaming political correctness for a watered-down version of his original executive action.

“The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!” Trump tweeted Friday.

The Supreme Court this week allowed the Trump administration to maintain its ban on refugees. The justices ruled in favor of the administration on Tuesday, blocking a lower court ruling that would have moderated the ban and allowed up to 24,000 refugees to enter the U.S. before the end of October.

The high court, however, will hear arguments on the legality of the administration’s ban on travelers from six Muslim-majority countries and refugees anywhere in the world on Oct. 10.

1. Larger and more specific? How does that work?

Does it matter that half of what the US president says makes no sense?

2. will the Muslim Ban extend to Europe and Asia now?


It is best Trump does not travel outside the US for fear of stoking more trouble than he has already.

3. Okay then, specifically include Saudi Arabia

when the 9/11 attackers came from, and where Trump has business interests! Most of the countries in his ban are not on record as having engaged in terrorism against the U.S.

5. Wasn't he claiming before that the ban was only supposed to be for 90 days until

they could "figure out what the hell is going on" and implement some process for "extreme vetting"?
