IF TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT THE NEED TO BAN MUSLIMS (HE’S NOT) AND IF YOU TAKE HIM AT HIS WORD IT’S CLEAR HE PUTS HIS BUSINESS INTERESTS AHEAD OF THE SAFETY OF AMERICANS. TRUMP IS THUS A CORRUPT TRAITOR TO AMERICAN INTERESTS BY HIS OWN STANDARDS…
Muslim countries where Trump does business are not on the list of banned Muslims. Some of these countries have financed terror networks. I don’t think any Muslims should be banned except for those individuals who pose a documented proven risk. But let’s suppose that Trump is correct in banning all Muslims. Then why is he protecting the Saudis? They produced 9/11. They financed extremism worldwide. They are the epicenter of all that is worst about extreme fundamentalist religion.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt are places Trump has money interests. These three countries have exported terror to the United States in the past. They accounted for 18 of the 19 terrorists who perpetrated the Sept. 11 attack on American soil. The attack was directed by a member of the the Saudi elite, Osama Bin Laden, with the assistance of an Egyptian, Ayman al-Zawahri.
These countries, unlike those subject to the ban, are ones where Donald Trump has done business. According to the Times, “In Saudi Arabia, his most recent government financial disclosure revealed several limited liability Trump corporations. In Egypt, he had two Trump companies registered. In the United Arab Emirates, he had licensed his name to a Dubai golf resort and a luxury residential development and spa. Some of these entities have since been closed, and others remain active.”
A look at other nations with large Muslim populations only reinforces this troubling pattern. Turkey, India and the Philippines could all pose similar risks as the banned countries of origin that concern the president. Yet Mr. Trump has done business in all three places. They, too, are omitted from his list.
As I said… If Trump is right about the need to ban Muslims (he’s not) and if you take him at his word it’s clear he puts his business interests ahead of the safety of Americans. Trump is thus a corrupt traitor to American interests by his own standards.
