Never in my life did I ever conceive that I would say that former President Jimmy Carter did something of worth during his Presidency. Never, until today. As yesterday was a media frenzy over Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump's stand on the banning of Muslims from entering the U.S. until further notice, I have now changed my opinion of Former President Jimmy Carter. I not only have a new opinion of the former President, but I have a new found respect for a man I believed to be one of the worst Presidents in the history of the United States. I have changed my opinion and gained a new found respect for a man I once deplored. I've changed my opinion due to learning that the former President, banned all Iranians from entering the United States during the Iranian Hostage crisis.Not only did the President ban Iranians from entering the States, but he deported some 15000 Iranians, 7000 were found in violation of their visas.
While the former President's handling of the hostage crisis was less than stellar, the President's actions to keep the homeland safe were extraordinaire. During the Iranian hostage crisis, President Carter issued a number of orders putting pressure on Iran, including the banning of Iranians from entering the United States. Iranians were banned from entering the U.S. unless they could prove they had a medical emergency, or were in opposition of the Shiite Islamist regime. That all being said I have to ask why is the White House attempting to disqualify Mr. Trump from participating in the Presidential election? I'd also like to ask, why are the Republicans up in arms over Trump's statement regarding the dis-allowance of Muslims from entering the country? Perhaps the White House, Democrats, and Republicans need be reminded of former President Carter's policies.
Former President Jimmy Carter banned Iranians from entering the United States, and the republicans, and democrats said nothing. Donald Trump threatens the banning of Muslims from entering the country if elected President, and he's being touted as the new Hitler and as a fascist . Trump is not a fascist, he's hardly Hitler, and he's not a man that the republican party should denounce as a Republican Presidential candidate. Donald Trump is an American that has an agenda as President to keep this nation, and it's people safe. I for one am relieved to have a candidate that will do whatever it takes to keep this country safe! America has an enemy in radical Islam, and unfortunately it is becoming more and more clear that the majority of Muslims do inevitably progress from being moderate Muslims, to radicalized Muslims. While America has always been a country to aid those in need, and in need of a safe haven, America has also been attacked on it's own soil. America has been attacked not once, not twice, but several times. If America doesn't change it's policies, America will be attacked again, and it won't be another 9/11, or a San Bernardino. I believe the next attack, or attacks on America will be on a much larger scale, and if America doesn't have a President strong enough to stand up to our enemies, and strong enough to enforce unpopular policies, it may be too late. Former President Jimmy Carter didn't take that chance, and Mr. Donald Trump won't take that chance, and I for one want a President that won't take any chances with American lives.
