Trump’s tweets on the travel ban

President Donald Trump’s latest decision to ban people from Muslim countries entering the United States has, as he says, been proven correct after the recent terrorist attack that took place in London. Trump calls this decision a “travel ban” as he has requested a total shutdown of Muslim immigration to the country. The Republican side and his supporters have accepted this decision as the only correct way to protect the country from terrorist attacks that have been spreading through Europe recently.

Even though the Justice Department Lawyers have avoided calling this executive order a “travel ban” and called it a “temporary pause”, the President has clearly stated his reasons and claims on Twitter in the past few days.

He has called out the Justice Department Lawyers for “watering down” his travel ban and trying to make it sound more politically correct. Clearly, the President is trying to break political boundaries for the sake of the security of the United States, as he states in his tweets:

 

“We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security of our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse.” – Tweeted on June 4th, 2017.

 

“The Justice Department should have stayed with the original TRAVEL BAN, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.” – Tweeted on June 5th, 2017.

 

He has confirmed through his tweets how this executive order is and will be referred to as a travel ban for he is determined to deny entrance to the country to Muslims all over the world. Whether this is a correct way of protecting the United States is an open debate among Democrats and Republicans.

 

“People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!” – Tweeted on June 5th, 2017.

 

“That’s right, we needed a TRAVEL BAN for certain DANGEROUS countries, not some politically correct term that wont help us protect our people!”

 

As seen from the President’s latest tweets, Trump refuses to call his decision anything but the travel ban for he is certain that is the only thing that can keep the people of the United States safe. He denies using politically correct terms to refer to the actions he is taking in order to protect his people. Whether this is a smart decision or an unfair judgement towards all Muslims remains a topic for debates. As seen from the recent tweets, Trump will not back down from his decision whether he had the support of majority of people or not. Following this decision, airport security and checks have been brought to a higher level where Trump requests to have the tourists’ social media accounts checked prior to entering the country. Being politically correct or not, Trump has increased the levels of security as no other president has done in the past. If this will result in a positive outcome we will find out over the period of the next few months.
