US travel ban

Everyone should not be tarred by the same brush because of the actions of a few.



Donald Trump's political base - representing about 35% of eligible voters - has stuck with him, despite the scandals and the mess the Republicans and he have made of their agenda, particularly the repeal of former President Barack Obama's signature health-care reform. Trump has already lost the independents who supported him in the election, and if he doesn't deliver on his promises - and cannot persuade his supporters that this failure is the Democrats' fault - that base may begin to erode.

I agree with your story today that the US ban on travellers from six Muslim countries is biased. Everyone should not be tarred by the same brush because of the actions of a few. Terrorism is real and we have a duty to combat it in our minds and through our actions. It should start from the society we live in. Simply put, we must be aware of our surroundings and know our neighbour. Being aloof makes it difficult to integrate into any society or country.
