Trump defends ban on immigrants from Muslim countries, says World a horrible mess

Washington, Jan 29 (Only Kashmir): US President Donald Trump today defended his decision to issue executive orders temporarily barring refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries entering the US by describing the world as being in ‘a horrible mess,’adding, Christians in the Middle-East have been executed in large numbers. We cannot allow this horror to continue!

Facing severe criticism for his decision – both within the US as well as elsewhere – Trump took to Twitter once again to justify barring refugees from Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen for a period of 120 days. The ban on refugees from Syria is indefinite. “Our country needs strong borders and extreme vetting,” he wrote on his Twitter handle, adding that the world is in a horrible mess.

US airports and other sites across the United States, including the White House, were expected to see a second wave of protests Sunday against Trump’s temporary immigration ban, which a federal judge partially blocked by ordering authorities not to deport detained refugees and other travelers.
