The Turtle Speaks
And after saying something irrelevant to Der Trumpenfuehrer's Imperial Decree blocking refugee immigration from Muslim countries that don't currently have business connections with Trump, went back to eating a leaf of lettuce.
Several top Senate Republicans raised concerns Sunday that President Trump’s order to halt the admission of refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries had not been properly vetted and could harm the relationship between the United States and key allies.Trump's Christian clause would make a liar of The Turtle unless Der Trumpenfuehrer would re-open the borders to those countries that negotiated for a Trump Hotel & Resort. Then it would just be hard nosed business.
The senators generally said they support the decision to increase standards for vetting refugees and other people traveling to the United States, but their remarks added to the growing chorus of criticism of Trump’s order.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) cautioned that the United States does not have a religious test for entry into the country, though he stopped short of rejecting the order in its entirety. McConnell said that Muslims, both in the United States and abroad, are key allies in the fight against terrorism and urged caution in regard to Trump’s plan to implement “extreme vetting” for refugees from countries where a majority of the citizens are Muslim.
“I don’t want to criticize them for improving vetting,” McConnell said on ABC’s “This Week.” “I think we need to be careful. We don’t have religious tests in this country.”
