Let’s just pass over the idea there is any Trump supporter out there anywhere who is salivating at the idea that Trump will “gain hugely” by an act of death or destruction perpetrated in the US by some terrorist, because, well, that’s just disgusting and of course no Trump supporter is so black-hearted and frankly sociopathic that they’d ever say that such an event “isn’t a loss” for anyone, including the very caring and empathetic President of the United States, of all people.
Look up how many terrorists have done what harm to US citizens that came from these two countries: Iran and Somalia.
Now, look up the harm done by terrorists from a few Muslim-majority countries unaffected by the ban, namely: Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Lebanon and Guinea.
Now, class, list the acts of terror perpetrated in the US in the last 15 years (that is, since 9-11) by terrorists sent from these five countries: Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
It isn’t the people from those seven countries who are going to attack us. Why? Because, hello, they have a war going on at home to fight. It is their ideology that is most likely to pose a threat to us, and it can still get here just fine over the internet.
Meanwhile, at least one infant has been able to slip through Mr. Trump’s defenses in order to get heart surgery in Oregon. She could have died because of this ban.
