In early 2017, President Trump signed an executive order known as “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.” The ban impacted seven countries with terrorist ties, including Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, Libya, and Yemen. The executive order wasn’t a “Muslim ban” since Muslim-majority countries like Indonesia and Pakistan weren’t named in the order.
Leftist thought process:
- “TERRORISM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM!”
- “BANNING IMMIGRATION FROM COUNTRIES WITH TERROR GROUPS IS MUSLIM BAN”
Liberals continue to mislead by calling Trump’s order a ‘Muslim ban’ [source]
