Some simple sleuthing online tells the story about the so-called “Muslim Ban.” The list of nations was determined by Homeland Security in 2015 and basically cut-and-pasted into Trumps’s executive order. It had nothing to do with religion other than by obvious extension to the motivation of ISIS and their ilk, and it had nothing to do with where Trump’s business empire did business.
Now that is fabrication on the part of some MSM news organizations and laziness on the part of others based on a narrative already written.
Surprise surprise, the BBC actually covered this with balance. Kudo’s to them.
On another note, one of the latest crisis stories on Facebook is Trump’s appointment of Bannon to head national security and demoting the DNI and Chairman of the joint chiefs. The post calls Bannon a white supremicist. That finished it for me, because I have studied that claim when it was first made. It isn’t true. He is an American nationalist. Massive difference. That taints anything else in the story.
Perhaps those people missed it but Trump, before inaugeration, did a little test because everything that went on in his National Security briefings, even the fact that he had one, was leaked to the press. He didn’t tell anyone about a particular meeting, not even his own personal secretary, but lo and behold the press discovered it.
No wonder he doesn’t trust those people, now more than ever when the meetings he is going to have discuss policy, not just updating information. What will happen now is that he will get real info from them because they cannot second-guess policy and tailor their reports, as happened in the past, under Bush and Obama.
Thus the U.S. MSM narrative perpetuated. Their hatred of Trump knows no bounds and neither does their capacity to outright lie and mischaracterize him and his actions.
