Iran has retaliated. It will ban the entry of Americans into their country until the American ban is lifted. This was expected. There is protest the world over. Wonder how many will follow suit You can read more on this here

It is difficult to understand what Trump has against Iran. Iranians are Shiites Muslims, there is no Shiite terrorism, and they made a lot of efforts to comply and obtain a UN agreement on their nuclear program. Compared to Iraq or Afghanistan, Iran is a modern country with a lot of potential. I guess Trump has not invested there.

There is Shia terrorism but it is active in Sunni-majority countries like Syria, Iraq and Yemen. They are also active in Lebanon. While they are not imposing a direct threat against the US, they are very successful in the Middle East. But it is not terrorism that worries Trump. He doesn't want immigrants and especially Muslims. As for his stance on Iran, I think that is to please the Israelis only.

Iran has opened its borders to tourists, including US citizens I think. Besides, Iranian are Shiites Muslims and all terrorists are Sunnites Muslims, so banning Iranians in the US is stupid.

I also hope to see him remove from office, preferably by an act of God. That will be a saving grace for all the world. Just a few days into his presidency, and he has caused more than enough trouble for everyone.

I just wait to see how and when China and Mexico will retaliate. If I were Mexico government, I will gather all the pregnant women who are about to give birth and send them to America to give birth! That is a very good revenge. If ever China takes action, all America companies in China will suffer greatly. The world will not have iphones anymore since all Iphones are made in China.

Trying to isolate America is ridiculous. It never works that way. We need each other.

That could only effect US citizens of Iranian origin who don't have Iranian citizens (if there are any). Trump's decision is stupid but the Iranian response is ridiculous
