King of Saudi Arabia Agrees to Help President Trump, Create Safe Zones for Refugees in the Middle East

Over the weekend, there has been endless hysteria by the liberal media about President Donald Trump’s Executive Order limiting immigration from certain countries which have ties to terror. Incorrectly referred to by the biased media as a “Muslim ban,” it’s simply limiting immigration from countries chosen by Barack Obama and Congress as a security threat.

In 2015, Congress passed – and Barack Obama signed – the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act, listing the countries affected by President Trump’s Executive Order.

Nowhere does this ban mention “Muslims.”

The order makes a reasonable requirement that refugees must be delayed entry by 120 days while this vetting process improves. It also caps refugee admissions to 50,000 per year, roughly the number that entered America during a typical year of President George W. Bush’s administration.

Yesterday, hundreds of thousands of people from other nations traveled into the United States. But there is a real threat that some individuals posing as refugees have links to terrorism, which is why they cannot be allowed into the country without proper vetting.

This hardly looks like a “ban” at all, and the numbers speak for themselves:

In 2002, the United States admitted only 27,131 refugees. It admitted fewer than 50,000 in 2003, 2006, and 2007. As for President Obama, he was slightly more generous than President Bush, but his refugee cap from 2013 to 2015 was a mere 70,000, and in 2011 and 2012 he admitted barely more than 50,000 refugees himself. The bottom line is that Trump is improving security screening and intends to admit refugees at close to the average rate of the 15 years before Obama’s dramatic expansion in 2016. Obama’s expansion was a departure from recent norms, not Trump’s contraction.

But throughout this process, liberals have claimed that Trump wouldn’t be able to work with foreign leaders. Apparently, his tough Tweets aren’t diplomatic. They must have forgotten that President Obama, who spent years as a “community organizer,” had no foreign policy experience.

But guess what? President Trump has already worked out a deal with a key leader in the Middle East. This is a big deal!

The King of Saudi Arabia and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi agreed with President Donald Trump’s request to support safe zones for refugees in the Middle East, the White House announced Sunday.

A White House readout of the call between President Trump and Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abd Al-Aziz Al Saud said that the King agreed to “support safe zones in Syria and Yemen, as well as supporting other ideas to help the many refugees who are displaced by the ongoing conflicts.”

The readout of the call between Trump and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Muhammad bin Zayid Al Nuhayyan of the United Arab Emirates was less specific but shared the same sentiment. “The President also raised the idea of supporting safe zones for the refugees displaced by the conflict in the region, and the Crown Prince agreed to support this initiative,” the White House said.

As President Trump explained on Facebook last night, the Executive Order will help make America safe. And importantly, the more Middle East leaders who help with the refugee crisis, the safer the world will be:

These safe zones are a step toward Middle Eastern nations actually helping these refugees in a humane, reasonable way. Right now, they have flooded into Europe and America while draining social welfare systems. This is unacceptable, which is why it’s important to have a leader like President Trump who can negotiate alternative arrangements which not only keep America safe, but save taxpayers’ money.

What do you think about Trump successfully negotiating with the King of Saudi Arabia for “safe zones” for refugees? Please leave us a comment (below) and tell us.

  • Trump must protect his investments, with tax payer money, What kind of building needs to fall on people to see Trump is with the Elites and Himself;
    Hitler needed a bunch of Stupid people to back him, Trump has many morons to push his profiteering;
    You can't fix Stupid!

  • Discount the US "media"....there is NONE....it is only a PROPAGANDA arm of the defeated globalist democrap party. The "protesters" are organized troublemakers paid by same globalists. Discount them as well.

  • Under the Obama Administration, it took a 2-3 year vetting process to get a refugee from these countries admitted to the U.S. No U.S. terrorist has come in as a refugee or through the Mexican (or Canadian) border. Our U.S. terrorists have all been born here or grown up here.

    (The only ONE exception was the wife of one of the home-grown terrorists who came in on a legal spousal visa.)

    The 9/11 terroists came from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Pakistan. They aren't on the list. The Iranians hate ISIS and hate Sunni Wahabbi jihadists, and Iran is on the list. Wackadoodle.

  • Mr. Trump behaves like a real President and the whole of Europe can learn a lot from him but specially the EU and particularly Merkel and Hollande Jucker Timmermans & Mogherini. they have done more to destroy the EU and are still doing that with that left wing liberals and media.

  • Why is it that when I was on a three-continent tour the tour guide took our passports and held them. It turned out that if you passport was stamped that you had been in Israel you were not allowed to travel in Egypt and visa-versa. Why is it that when I moved to California, Americans could not buy/purchase/own property in Mexico. Why are the liberals so against protecting our country from terrorist.....where was uproar on the ban when Carter and Obama put restrictions on immigration.....oh, I forgot---it's the demoncrats that are rioting along with their handlers, the main stream media. That's the caliber of these un-Americans......

  • In Australia they hide if a Muslim does anything wrong. One set fire to the Commonwealth Bank
    inside the premises. Twenty or more taken to hospital. Two with serious burns. Brigidine nun sad we should have compassion for him. No one allowed to discuss the victims. He was given a pension and a house but reported spent his days gambling. No one will ever know if they charged him. No doubt he has been well rewarded.

  • Amazing how the MSM can twist things around like they do. We need to be very careful who we let in from terrorist nations. My safety and that of my family TRUMPS any tourist or immigrant's.

  • I love it, we do need to get safe zones for these Muslims, not bring them into the US. There is no way to vet them to begin with, you can't make a few phone calls and check their stories. Good job Trump.

    • None in Saudi Arabia, of course. Still, I'm racking my brain trying to remember when this same offer was discussed between Hiz Majesty and President Obama.... oh wait.... IT NEVER HAPPENED!
