Let the President do his job People.

President Donald Trump does not feature on my guest list at all, yes, but so what? (writes Topi Lyambila). He is the POTUS and people just need to give the guy a break and let him do what he promised his voters he would do.

Why are we all acting like this guy descended on us from outer space! One of his principle campaign slogans is to rid America off terrorism, so if he chooses to go with it via an Executive order banning a few Muslim countries, yes I know all human rights activists are on the row questioning the decision.

Let’s face it; the President has said in his defense; “America has always been the land of the free and home of the brave,” he wrote. “We will keep it free and keep it safe, as the media knows, but refuses to say.”

He pushed back on criticism suggesting his executive order amounts to the “Muslim ban” he proposed as a candidate.

“To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting,” he wrote. “This is not about religion — this is about terror and keeping our country safe.” In an afternoon statement, Trump wrote the country would continue showing “compassion to those fleeing oppression.”

The truth of the matter is that Mr. trump is following up on the promises he made during his campaign, and what all we whiners out here are forgetting, is the fact that those callous statements are the same statements that got him elected in the firs place! So what is this hullaballoo all about? Let the man do his job and come good on his promises. If it was necessary we should have stopped him at the ballot, and now that we did not; let him have his day. Let him rule his way, let’s wait for the result of his ‘misrule’ – If his way works and he stumps out terrorism why not!

Problem with the modern world and its apologetic approach is that we are making our countries safe havens for these terrorist masterminds. Is it not true that most of the terrorist masterminds have had their schooling in the US? Look back to the likes of Osama bin Laden. In the United Kingdom for a long time Abu Hamza poured vitriol on the Christians every Friday during prayers, and yet he could not be deported because of some warped up human rights agenda.

Do the Democrats and the rest of the world think that Trump will rule like Obama did? Seriously, if they do then we are in for a big shock. Let the man implement his policies skewed or otherwise, this is his time and if we have a problem with him then lets wait till the end of the term and vote him out. Otherwise for now we should all shut up take a back seat and watch him fall from grace, if that is his destiny.

Trump cast the move as in line with the previous administration’s moves to combat terrorism, writing: “My policy is similar to what President (Barack) Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months.”

While Obama did order his administration to pause consideration of Iraqi refugee applications for six months in 2011, Trump’s action is far more sweeping, preventing all citizens of Iraq from entering the United States for 90 days. The other nations under the same restrictions are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Trump, in his statement Sunday, wrote those countries “are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror.”

Obama’s administration, however, did not issue an outright ban on citizens of those countries entering the United States.
