    For you Trump supporters, here is a topic that would be more relevant for you to address. Saudi Arabia financed terrorists in Palestine against Israel; they provided financial aid for suicide v=bombers; they provided the terrorists for 911; they financed al Queda in Iraq, and they not provide a huge number of recruits for ISIS. Aside from the fact that Trump does business there, why is it not included on the travel ban? Do you think ISIS would not use Saudi Arabia as a means of sending their soldiers here?

    "Let’s be clear: Al Qaeda, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Boko Haram, the Shabab and others are all violent Sunni Salafi groupings. For five decades, Saudi Arabia has been the official sponsor of Sunni Salafism across the globe.

    Most Sunni Muslims around the world, approximately 90 percent of the Muslim population, are not Salafis. Salafism is seen as too rigid, too literalist, too detached from mainstream Islam. While Shiite and other denominations account for 10 percent of the total, Salafi adherents and other fundamentalists represent 3 percent of the world’s Muslims.

    Unlike a majority of Sunnis, Salafis are evangelicals who wish to convert Muslims and others to their “purer” form of Islam — unpolluted, as they see it, by modernity. In this effort, they have been lavishly supported by the Saudi government, which has appointed emissaries to its embassies in Muslim countries who proselytize for Salafism. The kingdom also grants compliant imams V.I.P. access for the annual hajj, and bankrolls ultraconservative Islamic organizations like the Muslim World League and World Assembly of Muslim Youth."

    It should be. I've read that the only 7 counties on the list are the 7 countries that the obama administration reported to trump were involved in Isis training camps. he should have taken that info and then used common sense to add any other country that could be doing same. If it ever gets proven he excluded countries based on his business interests he should get in trouble. Lots of trouble!
