President Trump Pushes Travel Ban After Egyptian Mosque Attack

To be insane means to exhibit extreme foolishness or irrationality. America would be insane not to take heed of the attacks in other countries, and take the correct steps in order to protect our own lands and people.

If you watch a person touch a hot stove and burn themselves, then you are likely not going to touch that hot stove. Why? Because you saw the consequences of the action by watching others make the mistake. It would be foolish to make the same mistake, simply because you’re too stubborn to pay attention. Right?

Following the Egyptian mosque attack that killed at least 235 people, President Trump is pushing the wall and a travel ban even harder. Which is a good thing. We need the protection!

The Hill reports: 

 

In a tweet announcing an upcoming phone call with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Trump lamented the terrorist attack on the al-Rawdah mosque in the northern Sinai Peninsula, and said that the U.S. would have to “get TOUGHER and SMARTER” in dealing with terrorism.

His tweet read, “Will be calling the President of Egypt in a short while to discuss the tragic terrorist attack, with so much loss of life. We have to get TOUGHER AND SMARTER than ever before, and we will. Need the WALL, need the BAN! God bless the people of Egypt.”

Although the attack has not been claimed by any group yet, an Islamic State affiliate is well known for operating in that area. It is only a matter of time before it is claimed.

Trump has vowed since the beginning of his presidential campaign in 2015 to build a massive wall between the U.S. and Mexico as a way to prevent criminals from entering the U.S.

In his first days in office, Trump authorized construction of the wall, though has yet to obtain the funding from Congress needed for the massive project.

Trump has also repeatedly sought to bar individuals from certain countries from entering the U.S., though his executive orders on the matter have repeatedly faced hurdles in court.
