Trump insanity rules once again devoid of rational thought! Few if any of the Islamic terrorist attacks in the US have been perpetrated by those who have no family or no other connections inside the US. On the contrary they have been perpetrated by those who have family, educational, occupational and other ties to the US as well as being born and living here. Family often are the last to know what their adult children are doing. Witness the Boston Marathon bombing as one example or the San Bernadino bombing for another. There are others. Look them up.
I aver Trump does not give a damn about terrorism or its victims inside the US because if he did he would (a) put Saudi Arabia on the list. 9 of the 15 9/11 hijackers were Saudi. Radical Wahhabi violent Islam was born in Saudi Arabia (b) go after those who in this country already have terrorist proclivities as seen on FB and other social media sites about whom the FBI knows and are legal residents of the US. Moreover, Drumpf's travel ban and round up should NOT be limited to Muslims but also include white uber violent supremacists and neo Nazis Trump welcomes into his ranks! The Oklahoma City bombing took down nearly all of the US federal building in Oklahoma and killed 168 people many of whom were children. Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols convicted of the bombing were influenced by white nationalist militia movement violent fanatics and anti-government right wing extremists.
For Trump it's all about the money which is why Saudi Arabia is not on the list and about doing something anything using hate of innocent persons of brown color even if it does nothing to prevent a terrorist attack. Moreover, a blogger wrote and I agree: "Anything to distract the country from his selling us out to the Russians and taking away our insurance to further enrich the rich. Knowing Trump's talent for overreach, I'm willing to bet that he exceeds the fairly narrow ruling of the Supreme Court. He keeps acting as if the Court gave him a complete victory instead of the really narrow one he got."
Yes, yet again, Drumpf takes the low road! So what else is new? RESIST!
