    The trump refugee ban,
    Has no body thought that at least for the time being that this could actually help the world as strange as it may sound, at the end of the day the government has been in need of a major over haul for a long time, a lot of people have manipulated past presidents to keep the public in the dark about to many things for to long, hopefully Trump will not fall for the same crap,
