As reported here and elsewhere, Donald Trump has prepared an executive order that would ban refugees and others from certain Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East from entering the United States. An analysis of the Muslim-majority countries in the same region NOT subject to the ban show that such countries have one trait in common: Donald Trump has business interests there.
Reports Bloomberg: “President Trump is poised to sign an executive order that would suspend all entry to the U.S. from seven Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East…. His proposed list doesn’t include Muslim-majority countries where his Trump Organization has done business or pursued potential deals. Properties include golf courses in the United Arab Emirates and two luxury towers operating in Turkey.”
Surely this must be a coincidence.
