(TheRedAlertNews.com) – In a decisive promise that makes perfect sense for keeping the nation safe from terrorism and other evils, leading 2024 GOP presidential nomination candidate Donald Trump has vowed to impose travel bans on the citizens of “terror-plagued countries,” a measure he partly implemented in 2017.
At a recent rally, former President Trump pledged to reestablish his administration’s travel restrictions on citizens from nations plagued by terrorism, should he return to office.
Speaking at Ted Hendricks Stadium in Hialeah, Florida, Trump addressed a large crowd of supporters, choosing this event over attending the third GOP presidential primary debate. He has not participated in any of the debates, opting instead for interviews and rallies.
“On day one, we will restore the Trump travel ban on entry from terror-plagued countries and we will implement strict vetting, ideological screening for all new entrance into our country,” the former president told his supporters.
In 2017, Trump imposed a travel ban on immigration from several Muslim countries, among others, citing national security reasons. This ban affected Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Venezuela, and North Korea.
President Biden revoked this ban upon taking office. The initial order faced legal challenges, with critics arguing it discriminated against Muslims, referencing Trump’s campaign pledge to stop the influx of Muslims from any country.
Trump criticized the current state of the U.S. border under Biden, calling it a “lawless free-for-all” and asserting, “Anyone can come in!”
He also condemned the actions of pro-Palestinian protesters in the U.S., referring to incidents of vandalism and demonstrations, including those at the Cannon House Office Building and around the offices of several U.S. senators.
Trump mentioned a recent incident where protesters defaced the White House gates, criticizing their behavior and their support for Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group that massacred over 1,400 people in Israel on October 7.
He warned non-citizens involved in violent protests that they could face deportation in the future.
The 45th president of the United States concluded with a stern message for anti-Israel protesters in the U.S., particularly those engaging in violence.
“If you hate America, if you want to abolish Israel, if you sympathize with jihadists, then we don’t want you in our country and we are not going to let you come in to our country,” Trump concluded.
"I implemented a strong travel ban. They call it the Trump travel ban." – President Trump
