While the Democrats were staking all their hopes on an impeachment process that was doomed to fail, Donald Trump was planning his next move.
Already one of the most honest presidents in history, Trump has made keeping his promises a top priority, and even while he was being impeached in a sham trial, he was focusing on making progress on those promises.
One of those promises was to keep Americans safe from terrorism. And Trump is doing just that.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports:
The Trump administration announced travel restrictions on six new countries Friday, adding to the list of countries that is already placed under a travel ban.
During a conference call with reporters, officials with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the rollout of travel restrictions on Burma (Myanmar), Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan and Tanzania. An official said that inclusion of these governments is due to their inability to meet certain security standards.
The report continues:
President Donald Trump has tried to restrict travel from certain countries since the very beginning of his administration, but has been beset with challenges. It was the third iteration of his travel ban that survived a court challenge in the Supreme Court in June 2018. It included seven countries: Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen.
With the inclusion of the new six countries, the travel restriction affects thirteen governments in total. DHS said these countries rank lowest in the world in terms of complying with security standards, largely due to economic challenges, poor diplomatic relations and other reasons.
The new travel ban is sure to incite hysteria on the left and in the media, a strategy that never fails to hurt the Democrats. They don’t understand three things about politics in America in 2020.
Number one, voters don’t trust the media and for good reason. Number two, voters find Trump’s honesty refreshing and are willing to forgive his occasional gaffes because he gets things done.
Number three, as a result of the first two realities, Trump is an odds-on favorite to win reelection in 2020. It’s shaping up to be a good year for Trump fans.
