You tell me. The main threat in the US seems to be from right wing nutters who love their guns.

The Obama administration identified the initial 7 countries as needing more attention from a travel perspective. The documentation provided by those countries was less than sufficient to prove that there was no security risk. The Trump administration decided to impose a temporary ban whilst working out ways to obtain more information. Iraq has now agreed to supply more information and has been taken off the list. According to a Whitehouse press briefing, the list is not set in stone; countries could be added or removed at a later date.


BTW Terrorism is not Saudi Arabia's default method of 'attacking' America; their method appears to be influence via financial investments.

I don't think Mr K mentioned the BBC in his posts.

Main issue with the ban is that Homeland Security said it would not make the country safer. So why is Trump wasting time on a measure that does not make the country safer when he could be spending time on measures that make it safer? It looks more like posture and placating his always-believers.

Interring mix of reader comments on that article.

It's a generalisation. Most UK citizen's news source is predominately via the BBC.

Considering over the last 10 years or so you're 3210 times more likely to have been killed by guns than terrorists in America, I'd say the balance of probability lay with the gun nuts, the terrorists would have some way to go to kill over 300 000 people and tbh I'm not sure they're up to it, fortunately.

Different argument, and not really relevant.

Well, they are commonly known as the 'Clinton News Network', especially during the Presidential election

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

How do you reconcile the fact trump is cutting funding to the TSA & Cost Guard to cover the initial cost of the wall on the Mexico border? (Do Mexicans not have boats?) How does this play with the travel ban? To me the two things seem incompatible, especially the TSA.

"This plan would cut the Coast Guardsbudget by 14 percent down to $7.8 billion and that of the TSA by 11 percent, down to $4.5 billion. It would also decrease the budget of the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA, which provides relief after natural disasters, by 11 percent to $3.6 billion."

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

Given how many americans loathe both the tsa and fema i think trump has again cemented his core support, we are judging all this without understanding the americans that voted for trump or the reasons many of them voted anti establishment. I think that was the key to trumps victory not that people are overly supportive of him or even like him but that he was a complete break from an establishment that a majority of americans feel has failed them and isn't representive of them and trump was just the only option to express that. What I've noticed over the last few years amongst the americans i chat with is a growing anti government sentiment and an exasperation with how the government operates.

That's from both democrat and republican voters theres something very wrong in the US and while i don't think trump will solve it he at least recognises it exists unlike the democrats who still haven't woken up yet.

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

Congressional Budget Office has said 24 million people will lose health coverage under the current plan: https://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/fi...lthcareact.pdf

That's worse than the expected 11 million.

That links seems to have broken but this one works https://www.cbo.gov/publication/52486

I wonder how many of the 24m voted for Trump?

Re: U.S President: Donald Trump

But for those who remain insured their Premiums will rise 10-20% than Obamacare in the first 5 years but end up 10% lower for young people than Obamacare in 2026.
