Foreign Minister of “TRAVEL BANNED” Country Is Furious With Trump

The Iranian foreign minister is taking a leaf out of the book of the American progressives and is using “Iranian grandmothers” as a way to shame the Trump administration for the “travel ban.”

Unfortunately, Trump and his people cannot be “shamed” by the people who are heavily responsible for terror in the Middle East. Not to mention, how many Iranian grandmothers are traveling to America?

A modified (and some would argue watered down) version of the Trump travel ban went into effect on Thursday, courtesy of the Supreme Court.

Basically, nationals from the “banned countries” will not be able to obtain a visa from the United States unless they can provide proof of a “bona fide” relationship with our country. These countries include Somalia, Sudan, Syria Iran, Yemen and Libya.

Now Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif is complaining about the ban, saying that it targets “Iranian grandmothers” and keeps families apart.

“US now bans Iranian grandmothers from seeing their grandchildren, in a truly shameful exhibition of blind hostility to all Iranians.”

In a desperate attempt to make Trump feel bad about his decision to protect American citizens, Iranians took to Twitter to share photos and hashtags. You know, things that matter.

“Because Trump doesn’t think I have a bonafide relationship with my grandpa … #GrandparentsNotTerrorists,” tweeted Iranian-American, Ida Adibi.

Shayan Modarres, the legal counsel for the National Iranian American Counsil, issued a statement on the ban, and I don’t think I need to tell you that it wasn’t exactly glowing.

“Trump’s pathological pursuit of the Muslim Ban has reached a new low by targeting grandparents of American children.”

“There are one million Iranian Americans in the United States and many cannot return home to visit loved ones. President Trump’s directive might as well pull children out of the arms of their grandparents who will no longer be able to visit for the sole reason that they are Iranian. The president is supposed to protect American families, not rip them apart.”

Oh my GOSH… could you be anymore of a drama queen? This isn’t permanent, it’s a temporary halt on immigration from countries that have a history of terrorist ties. If you can’t understand that, then there is no way I can explain it to you.
