Trump bans Sudanese from entering to U.S territory

January 27, 2017 (KHARTOUM) - President Donald Trump Friday has signed an executive order banning from entering the U.S. for at least the next 90 days Sudanese nationals and citizens of other six countries.

The measure is seen as first step towards establishing a broader ban, and comes in line with an electoral pledge "to keep America safe" by the Republican president.

The executive order of 27 January bars all people from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the United States. Also, the presidential decision orders to grant priority to Christian and other minority religions over Muslims.

Speaking at the signing ceremony at the Pentagon, Trump said “We don’t want them here,” “We want to ensure that we are not admitting into our country the very threats our soldiers are fighting overseas. We only want to admit those into our country who will support our country, and love deeply our people,” he stressed.

The band does not include diplomats and members of international organizations from the seven designed countries.

A week before the end of his second term, President Obama signed an executive order easing economic embargo on Sudan.

However, Obama maintained the east African country in the list of state sponsors of terrorism with Libya, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Stria and Yemen.

The new American administration didn’t yet determine its policy towards Sudan. Washington has to review the economic sanctions within six months and to decide to re-establish it fully or to lift it definitely.

      and Barack Obama with his allies use to fool others that he was fighting terrorism when in truth, he was arming and fought other countries with the terrorists. Here in South Sudan though, we know the dirty game the idiot was playing against our country and our people through his Riek Machar, Pagan Amuom and Lam Akol puppets/stooges>>

        North Sudan even sent its troops to go and fight in Yemen on behave of Saudi Arabia and gulf Arab states as mercenaries. And Barack Obama didn’t even utter a single word on as to why other countries were allowed to invade a sovereign country without a UN permission?

          Riek Machar and company foiled coup and eventual armed rebellion against an elected government of South Sudan in 2013. Barack Obama, the UK and the UN barked at the government of South Sudan like mad dogs that the Ugandan troops must withdraw from South Sudan immediately, while at the same time, they were the ones backing the armed rebellion in our country>>>

            Barack Obama, the UK and their UN Riek Machar puppet/stooge was the one that signed the South Sudan’s military cooperation between Uganda and Congo. While he was the vice president of South Sudan. Our current military cooperation between Rwanda and Egypt were signed by our current defense minister and general chief of staff>>>

He has been treating our country and our people like our country is a US over sea’s territory and our people like we are the US subjects----we would really want to know from him>>.

                    to be precise. The criminals have destroyed Libya, Central Africa republic, Ukraine, Yemen, Iraq and now Syria and their most prized country to destroyed is our country, South Sudan---simply because they want our oil fields and they are using their damn UN, humanitarian aids, donations and their so-called peace keeping business as their pretexts to crawl their rubbish into our country!!>>>

                      Barack Obama and the US business were welcomed immediately after our Independence to come an invest in our country, but objected that there were no infrastructure in South Sudan to invest in.

                        But when Barack Obama and his Wall Street buddies and CO. who objected the South Sudan’s offer to invest heard that the Chinese are going to invest in South Sudan, the criminals went ballistic and wanted a regime change of the government of South Sudan and that is why we have the current war in our country. Guys like Barack Obama and Co. have taken South Sudan and South Sudanese people for idiots>

You should rather vent your disgust against Kiir and Malong, cos have made you a hopeless refugee and can’t return to your luak. Cheers brother 😎

    Bravo Mr. Trumpet! I only supported you on this, but the rest of your executives orders that you’re signing everyday here in an oval office is not right. Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the US. The above countries are definitely terrorist sponsors, I don’t know if Obama was new to those nations.

    Stop preaching your cheap ignorance about world politics. China will continue to sell arms to you and you know that these arms are not for playing games. They are for killing your very people. South Sudan is not in state of war with any neigboring country. How stupid are the JCE and Dinka to reject arms embargo, at the same time crying for peace. Guns are not for use in peace time but to war.

    “Trumps bans all Sudanese from entering the U.S.”—This ban is the blunt, indiscriminate act of a vicious, ignorant narcissist who is surrounding himself with incompetent advisors. It does not distinguish between Sudanese legitimately seeking political asylum and members of the NIF/NCP.

      Eric Reeves,

      You are Salva Kiir agent who lies, lies, and lies higher about what the conflict in South Sudan. You mislead black Muslim President Barack Husen Obama about the war in South Sudan in support of Kiir. Writing indicated that you do have God and justice in heart. You are for money.

      Indeed ... and my good brethren in South Sudan rejoice prematurely. Guys, Trump/ Banon are not yet done with Executive Orders. First steps control the US borders; at one point he’ll definitely look into people who reap harm on US citizens abroad - and that covers people who rape US citizens. Does the Terrain incident in Juba ring a bell? Don’t rejoice yet, Kiirians, he is not yet done.
