Trump's Ban on Immigration to Include Allies

You get a ban! And you get a ban! And you get a ban!

Everybody gets a ban!

It seems GOP’s bloviating, orange gas-bag is so addicted to the rush he gets by claiming he’ll ban immigrants, that he’s expanding the ban to other nations.

Donald J. Trump suggested in an interview on Sunday that he would expand his proposed immigration restrictions to include anyone entering the United States from countries or territories “compromised” by terrorism, including allies such as Germany and France.

This latest revelation came during a segment of NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The goal, according to Trump, is to protect the nation from exposure to any culture that had been “infiltrated” by Muslim immigrants.

“I actually don’t think it’s a rollback. In fact, you could say it’s an expansion,” Mr. Trump said in the interview with the NBC host Chuck Todd. “I’m looking now at territory.” In the coming weeks, Mr. Trump told Mr. Todd, he would be unveiling a detailed list of countries and territories from which immigrants would be subject to “extreme vetting.”

And while Trump is looking to block German and French immigration, he seems to be growing ties with Russia. Reports from earlier in the week suggest Russian hackers were behind the document leaks on Wikileaks that have caused so much turmoil within the Democrat ranks. These reports further suggest Trump may be the intended beneficiary of those leaks.

“Experts are telling us Russian state actors broke into the D.N.C., stole these emails, and other experts are now saying that the Russians are releasing these emails for the purpose of actually of helping Donald Trump,” Mr. Mook said in an appearance on CNN.

Mr. Mook provided no evidence that the Russian government had directed the release of the emails, which were posted Friday by WikiLeaks. An internal D.N.C. audit conducted by the firm CrowdStrike indicated that the hack was perpetrated by two groups of hackers with ties to Russian intelligence.

Mr. Trump has praised President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and suggested he would reconsider the United States’ commitments to NATO, a move that would likely empower Mr. Putin. At the Republican convention last week, Trump allies modified a plank in the party platform calling on the United States government to provide arms to Ukrainian forces fighting Russian and Russian-backed rebels. And Mr. Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, has worked in the past for Ukraine’s former Russian-backed president, Viktor F. Yanukovych.

But… nothing to see here. Trump and Manafort call the claims of Russian entanglements nonsense, with no basis.

This election is shaping up to be a race to determine who can be the most corrupt, with the dirtiest foreign ties.
