President Trump Tried To Ban Muslims And The Whole Country's Gone Mad (Yet Again!)

-

In case you haven't heard, Donald Trump, the president of the United States, signed an Executive Order banning immigrants from 7 Muslim-majority countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen).  

He cited Islamic extremism and terrorism in his reasons for the ban, but the countries affected by the ban have been responsible for exactly ZERO American deaths on American soil.  Meanwhile, countries whose citizens HAVE been responsible for over 3,000 American deaths - Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt - are still welcome to apply for US visas.

In a not-so-surprising twist in the story, these three countries have million-dollar licensing and development deals with President Trump's companies, which he refuses to rescind ownership of.  

Additionally, it's been discovered that HALF of terrorist attacks on the USA were by natural born American citizens.

In light of the unconstitutional actions, blatant racism, and general feeling of deja vu, American citizens are sending a message to the president that they have had enough.  

This weekend, a week after the historic Women's March on Washington, thousands of angry people rallied in protest of Trumps decision to ban Muslim immigrants outside of the White House and at airports across the nation.

However, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) stood up for the people and told Donald Trump that the people won't stand for his racism by suing for a stay in the order - meaning that the order would be unenforceable until the Supreme Court has a chance to deliberate and make a final decision about it.  

This is just the beginning of the fight.  And while it's seen as a major victory for immigrants, the American people continue to voice their opposition to Trump's discriminatory actions.

Today, we share with you photos and other internet reactions of the USA saying NO to President Trump and what you can actually do to help.

Here's how Facebook's CEO Mark Zuckerberg reacted...

Wise words as always, Mark!

And Google recalled over 100 employees back to the United States amid concern over the ban

"We’re concerned about the impact of this order and any proposals that could impose restrictions on Googlers and their families, or that create barriers to bringing great talent to the U.S.," a Google spokeswoman said in a statement. "We’ll continue to make our views on these issues known to leaders in Washington and elsewhere."
