Open affront against the Muslim world, says Iranian foreign ministry as Trump imposes ban

American President Donald Trump's on executive order ban told "It's working out very nicely. You see it at the airports. You see it all over.

American President Donald Trump’s on executive order ban told “It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports. You see it all over. It’s working out very nicely and we’re going to have a very, very strict ban, and we’re going to have extreme vetting, which we should have had in this country for many years.”

When signing his action calling for a five-year lobbying ban for administration officials, Trump referred to a ban imposed by his predecessor, former President Barack Obama

Twitter reacting on the executive orders expressed the disappointment, “Twitter built by religion of all religions, we stand by them”, it wrote.

Leaders across the world express their disappointment on the issue , Theresa May said “US has its own policies, we have our own policies.”

British Prime Minister Theresa May, however, ducked a series of questions at a press conference with the Turkish prime minister, 24 hours after meeting Trump in Washington.

Asked several times what she thought of Trump’s order, she finally replied: “The US is responsible for its policy on refugees and UK is responsible for its policy on refugees.”

As the US ordered the executive orders, Iran said it was blocking entry to US citizens in response to a move by US President Donald Trump, who signed an executive order temporarily barring most arrivals from seven Muslim-majority countries. Iran said Trump’s wide-ranging order, which was signed on Friday and, among other things, prevents most travellers from Libya, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Iraq, Iran and Yemen from entering the US.

The Iranian foreign ministry said in a statement the executive order was an “open affront against the Muslim world and the Iranian nation”. Iran will “take appropriate consular, legal and political measures”, it said.

Thanu Yakupitiyage, a spokeswoman for the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC), told the Guardian: “This is absolutely dehumanising, I am livid, it’s outrageous. We are sending someone to JFK airport to speak to customs and border control about this, people are in a state of shock.”

While the chaos and confusion continues at several airports as Trump announces the ban.
