    Trump's ruling about Muslim entry of certain Muslim countries causes huge problems with airlines and customs all over the world. People are for instance stranded in Amsterdam and KLM has to take care of them; who pays for all this fun?? Not Mr.Trump I think. It has consequences, which ever way you look at it. Iran has now blocked entry of Americans in turn. I hope others follow this as well. Trump never learned: Cause and Effect. I doubt if he creates an lot of "friends" this way.

    In Trump's rush to get all these executive orders placed, he didn't have time to run them by the respective groups that will be implementing them. Hence the ban on Muslim country citizens has left confusion amongst people holding Green Cards or other visas caught outside of the USA. Hence some family members are caught outside the USA while other are inside. There is not enough immigration staff to handle all the chaos at once so everyone is delayed and families are split up.

    Total incompetence by Trump and his minions. I could say we are the laughing stock of the world except for the many families affected it is no laughing matter. So sad!

    Schmidt,what an timid response! Don't you realize what is now happening? The rest of the "civil"world will not accept this.

    This will escalate in an huge way; the total stupidity of this backfire in an huge way; things like this should be first go through congress, but may be worthless as well. Trump does certainly not think about any consequences about any of his erratic pen and paper nonsense. Everything he says or does should have been throughly analysed, before putting such things on "paper".

    Congress?? Congress?? Thus far all Congressional leaders are falling in line behind Trump despite previous statements. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are both supporting the Muslim ban now...as does Defense Secretary Mattis. Party first.

    This is another chapter in our looking like total fools. We are an embarrassment and our political minions are useless garbage. All I can hope for is mass failure followed by total by massive voter registration and an attempt to right this ship next time. I hope the current administration fails and all citizens realize what a mistake was made. What I have said and I will repeat is that eventually politicians and media will need to stand up and challenge. Those who stand up will get my respect.

    Edit/add. After TrumpsMuslim ban. Mosque burnt in Texas. Hate and exclusion begets the same.

    However Trump does if he's the "boss" and says I'll continue with this anyway and I'm proud of what I'm doing.

    Yes Schmidt; your article about " his mental illness" says it all!!!

    It seems as if the Trump Administration is openly ignoring that order, which sets us up for a Constitutional crisis just over one week into Donald's Presidency.

    On a side note - I'm wondering if Jill Stein's voters are second guessing their protest vote now. Elections have consequences. We are witnessing that first hand now.

    The Muslim ban doesn't include Saudi Arabia. They only were the home country of many 911 participants. However. Where there are Trump businesses there will no impediments. Many other nations in the area have real estate interests. Follow the money.

    Don't forget Egypt; he wants to built hotels there to; there are large resorts on the Red Sea for European and Turkish tourists. I hope and pray that they catch him on "business " conflicts of interests".

    Trump's Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) John Kelly has ordered the airport immigrations staff to ignore the judges' stay on the deportation and immigration ban. What next? Perhaps finding John Kelly in contempt of court? Will it go that far?

    Many Republicans are uneasy about the ban, but refuse to say anything in public against Trump.

    In the meantime, countries around the world are starting to take action. A petition is circulating in the UK asking the government to rescind the invitation to Trump to visit the UK. They showed the number of signatures being added electronically to the petition. The number counter was spinning full speed.

    Trump remains defiant.

    The latest; California is roaring mad and wants to leave the Union; the first steps are already taken. I hope they succeed!

    Other subject: Over in Amsterdam Airport huge demonstrations, regardless if they in the Netherlands they have accepted thousands of refuge's from the countries mentioned as well helped with the stupid US created wars. They have signs of Trump with an Hitler mustache etc. and even got into a fight with security. However Trump and his cronies does not blink one eye. Unbelievable. This is not the America I thought it would be. They wanted my services, because they did not have the expertise; but now I'm having regrets I ever tried to help them. Amen

    Today there were protests reported in NYC, LA, DC, and in NC. Smaller protest in Tampa. Probably other places as well. I hope unhappy people stay very vocal. Saying nothing equals accepting it all.

    Merkel called Trump and told him that all of this is against International law. He can stick that up his fat ass.

    This was just on Facebook. People are painting this against him. Suggested he's going to do more heinous acts.
