The country that we have grown up in and that has stood for a place that welcomes all is no longer recognizable. In a mere week, Donald Trump has effectively turned our government into a cesspool of lies, recriminations and executive orders that go against the very foundation of this nation.

His executive order to ban immigrants from seven Muslim countries including, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia has gone into effect. People are stranded at airports around the world. People with green cards who are legal residents are not being allowed back into the country. Chaos is reigning.

Not lost on anyone is that the seven countries are minus the two that Donald Trump does business with, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

They also happen to be the two of the countries from which the 9/11 terrorists originated. According to the Huffington Post, there has not been a fatal terror attack on the US from any immigrants from the countries that he has banned.

So in order to stop radical Islam, Trump bans immigrants from countries that have not produced terrorists. He allows two of the countries to remain off the list, the ones who produced the 9/11 terror. Why? The only logical conclusion is that he wants to be able to continue to do business with them.
