    No more twinkies on a stick for you.... unless May makes good on that import deal

    Yeah, because you can trust Castro's word, he even promised for them to have Playstation 4 Pros and latest LG OLED TVs in jail and absolutely no torture whatsoever...

    Thing is, Trump bans people from countries where US forces have to or will have to fight, so having local support saves lifes of troops and the only way it could work if those guys get green cards after that, now even green card (!) holders are not allowed to come back in, with pretty much zero notice.

    NOT being able to visit the USA is not necessarily a "punishment".

    It's fine to have a bit of humour, but what has just happened is totally unprecedented in a western supposedly liberal country.

    It's pushing things so far to the right I wouldn't be surprised if we saw another Hitler emerging in a number of years...

    It's not even funny.

    I believe I'm correct in saying that this order, had it been in force before, would not have prevented a single one of the terrorist attacks that have taken place in the USA.

    It certainly wouldn't have prevented 9/11, as that was carried out by Saudis. Saudi Arabia isn't on the list

    Sanctions against Sweden would be more effective at saving American lives. More people in the US have died from IKEA furniture these past 10 years than terrorism.
