In this week’s episode of the Apprentice President: Donald Trump bans people from the Muslim countries he does not do business with.
President Trump recently signed an executive order limiting the flow of refugees in a supposed effort to “keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the US”.
The order also temporarily bars travelers, including US legal permanent residents and visa-holders from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen from entering the country for 30 days.
He says that the Muslim ban would help keep Americans safe from terrorist attacks.
“I’m establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America. Don’t want them here,” Trump told the press on Friday.
However, several Muslim countries where Trump has business dealings with, are nowhere to be found on the list, according to Bloomberg.
To highlight Trump’s “oversight” the report even posted a map indicating the Muslim-majority countries where Trump has business interests, such as, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Azerbaijan, which are rendered in yellow.
One may argue that maybe the government has simply identified the specific Muslim countries are the threat and him having business links with some of them are just coincidences.
However, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE and Lebanon, are where the 9/11 hijackers were reportedly from, and these countries are not in his Muslim ban.
Pakistan, where one of the San Bernardino shooters in 2015 was from, is also excluded from Trump’s list. Meanwhile, both Turkey and Egypt, also missing from the list, were recently on the receiving end of high-profile terror attacks and considered as “risks”.
