The Trump proposal to ban Muslims from coming to the United States has been used during the Carter administration. President Jimmy Carter instituted a ban on Iranians with exceptions for those who opposed their government or for critical medical treatment.

Trump is not the “fool” that the press would like to portray, nor is he likely to follow the herd.

To those who say “He will get the U.S. into trouble,” look around you.

We are in trouble.
