After a week of issuing some of the most inhumane, unconstitutional executive orders this country has ever seen, Donald Trump finally suffered his first loss and got a brutal reminder that the majority of America embraces diversity and is actively resisting him every single day.
After Trump announced an executive order to ban anyone from Muslim-majority countries such as Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from coming into the United States, Americans across the country packed themselves into airports in protest. This order also stopped Syrian refugees from coming into the country, putting several citizens in great danger if they were to be sent back. Fortunately, the ACLU sued Trump and Federal Judge Ann Donnelly ruled against Trump’s Muslim ban, temporarily blocking it – and Trump is NOT taking it well.
Like the man-baby he is, Trump threw a temper tantrum on Twitter Sunday morning because Americans had dared to uphold America’s values. He whined and tweeted this morning:
“Our country needs strong borders and extreme vetting, NOW. Look what is happening all over Europe and, indeed, the world – a horrible mess!”
First of all, considering the mess that Trump has made in our country in such a short amount of time, Trump has NO business talking about how bad things are in other countries. But he didn’t stop there. This was his next tweet:
“Christians in the Middle-East have been executed in large numbers. We cannot allow this horror to continue!”
This tweet came after he implied in an interview that persecuted Christians wanting to come into the United States will be prioritized when they apply for refugee status. Trump had said to the Christian Broadcasting Network:
“We are going to help them. They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, and the reason that was so unfair — everybody was persecuted in all fairness — but they were chopping off the heads of everybody, but more so the Christians.”
This of course, was met with criticism, as Christopher Hayes challenged Trump and asked “How does deporting an Iranian doctor do anything to help Christians in the Middle East?”
Here’s the thing – the Republican Party loves to make decisions based on their “faith”, when it’s really just disguised hatred and biases. This was perfectly expressed by Rob Fee:
I’d love to see Trump try to defend himself against that. Trump will likely be throwing a temper tantrum all day over Twitter, unable to handle the fact that Americans put a stop to his disgusting xenophobia.
