7 Things President Trump Should Ban Instead of Muslims

As we all know by now, one of the first actions Donald Trump took as president of the United States was to issue an executive order banning the entry of immigrants and refugees into the U.S. from seven majority-Muslim countries for 90 days.

The order that has been called a “Muslim ban” by many inspired hundreds of Americans to protest the decision this past week by raising their signs high at airports across the country. There is no doubt that President Trump’s executive order goes against everything America stands for, namely religious freedom and the idea that all men are created equal. If the president is so set on banning things, here are some alternative options he should take into consideration:


1. Racists

Because we don’t live in a White-washed world, and this isn’t the 40s.


Just don’t.


2. Islamophobia

Hey Hey! Ho Ho! Islamophobia’s got to go! Muslims have every right to be here, and we shouldn’t have to deal with hatred and abuse in our own home country.

Nope, not going anywhere.


3. Alternative Facts

Used by the president’s advisor Kellyanne Conway to defend Sean Spicer, this term is a just a fancy way of saying “lie” and it needs to die.

I’m sorry, there are no facts involved here, Kellyanne.


4. Xenophobia

Immigrants are beautiful and they make up such a large part of this country. We can’t sit back and accept that the president is making decisions that label all foreigners as threats.

Hint: They’re not.


5. His Hair

Now that Trump holds POTUS status, he should really do something about the situation on his head. Maybe a new ‘do will help him think clearer.

…Then again, maybe not.


6. The hand gestures. THE HAND GESTURES.

Why does Trump feel the need to emphasize everything he says (which already makes no sense) with confusing hand movements?

Seriously, what do they mean?


7. Walls

We are not a nation that keeps people out. We break down barriers. We don’t build them. Period.

Sorry, no space for walls here.

President Trump has only been in office for less than two weeks and has already caused the country to enter panic mode. But the American people have shown that they are resilient and that they will face every action of the president head-on. As long as there are people willing to protest and stand together, there is hope.

You picked the wrong year, Mr. President. We learned a lot from 2016. Bring it on.
