The liberal courts might be holding up President Trump’s travel ban, but that’s not going to stop him from finding other ways to keep Americans safe. On Wednesday President Trump signed an executive order that will slow down the process of getting visas for short-term visitors to the U.S.
In 2012 Obama signed an executive order which ordered the State Department to complete interviews for 80% short-term visa applicants within three weeks. President Trump reversed that order on Wednesday.
Assistant press secretary Michael Short said:
“This is a very straightforward step that removes an arbitrary requirement and ensures the State Department has the needed discretion to make real-world security determinations. The president expects careful, accurate vetting of visa applicants, not a rushed process to accommodate an arbitrary deadline.”
That’s great news! It is so nice to have a president finally putting the safety of Americans first! Last year alone the State Department processed about 10.4 MILLION short-term visas- President Trump wants to make sure each and every visitor who gets in is coming for good reasons.
Nobody is reporting on this awesome thing President Trump just did- so that’s why we have to share it 5 million times to get the word out, the courts might have held up the travel ban, but President Trump is doing what he can to put AMERICA FIRST!
