Strangely I downloaded and watched the movie 1984 yesterday. Very fitting with Trump's America now. Angry uses the scene from 1984 where they keep wanting the guy to deny what he's seeing in front of his face.
Like what Trump's doing with the crowd pictures of his inauguration. Some Trump-ets are denying what they see with their own eyes, saying that Trump crowds were bigger. Gotta love that Newspeak.
Oh, and this was before Trump's refugee banning order. The allies aren't happy, as Trump continues to shut the door on the world. It was surreal reading this on the PC this morning; not something that I'd have ever thought I'd see coming from the US president.
President Donald Trump's sweeping ban on people seeking refuge in the United States and visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries caused confusion and panic among travellers on Saturday, with some turned back from U.S.-bound flights.
Immigration lawyers in New York sued to block the order, saying numerous people have already been unlawfully detained.
The new Republican president on Friday put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States and temporarily barred travellers from Syria and six other Muslim-majority countries. He said the moves would protect Americans from terrorism.
The executive order prompted fury from Arab travellers in the Middle East and North Africa who said it was humiliating and discriminatory. It drew widespread criticism from U.S. Western allies including France and Germany, Arab American groups, human rights organizations.
"This is a stupid, terrible decision which will hurt the American people more than us or anybody else, because it shows that this President can’t manage people, politics or global relationships," said Najeed Haidari, a Yemeni-American security manager for an oil company in the Yemeni capital Sanaa. nine.msn
