It seemed like the entirety of the United States of America was against the travel ban imposed by Donald Trump as his first major executive order. Just to refresh your memory, it was to stop people from six Muslim majority from entering the United States and the mainstream media criticized Trump for this decision. There was concern that it violated human rights, and would cause more harm than good for the United States image across the world as well.
The Democrats came out with full force to voice frustration at Trump and his administration, and it seemed like the wheels were about to come off with massive protests being held on airports across the country. However, a recent survey conducted by Politico reveals that 60% of registered voters supported the Travel ban imposed by Trump. The ban denies entry to people coming from six Muslim majority countries for an indefinite time-period, and this caused a lot of people to be stranded in limbo.
Democrats supporting Travel Ban?
The most shocking result of the survey conducted by Politico was not that 89% Republicans support the ban, but that 41% of Democrats also support it. This comes as a surprise, but there were 46% of Democrats who oppose the ban, compared to only 9% Republicans. There has also been a change in Independent supporters, with 56% supporting the travel ban, and 30% not in favor of it.
This is in stark contrast to the picture that the mainstream media is trying to paint, and it seems that there is a personal agenda against Trump and his policies. Contrary to what the media would have people believe, there is a lot of support for the Travel Ban imposed by Trump, and Democrats are also backing it.
New Guidelines Shifting Perspective
The survey covered by Politico shows that a lot of people support the new guidelines added into the travel ban, which suggest that visa applicants from the six Muslim majority countries, must prove they have close family relationships with a U.S. resident. The media isn’t highlighting the fact that there is now popular support for the travel ban, because they don’t want to give credit to Trump, who did what he promised in his very first executive order.
The mainstream media would have you believe that there is an ongoing war between the Democrats and the Republicans, and will never show you that the Democrats are also fans of the Travel Ban.
