Salaman suggested that Trump was a “true friend of Muslims” and that his Muslim travel ban was an acceptable way to combat terrorism.
Following a successful meeting between Donald Trump and his senior advisor, the Saudi Arabian Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman described Trump as a “true friend of Muslims,” adding that he respects and supports Trump’s travel ban for people from seven terror prone Muslim majority countries.
The Prince’s senior adviser, who attended the White House on his behalf, said in a statement that the meeting was a “huge success” that marked a historic turning point in the bilateral relations [between the] two countries.”
On the subject of Trump’s proposed travel ban, which a federal judge in Hawaii blocked yesterday, the Prince argued that “the measure is a sovereign decision aimed at preventing terrorists from entering the United States of America.”
Salaman went on to say that Trump’s travel ban shows that he has a “deep respect for the Religion of Islam.”
A spokesperson for Salaman issued the following statement:
Prince Mohammed considers his Excellency [Trump] as a true friend of Muslims who will serve the Muslim World in an unimaginable manner, opposite to the negative portrait of his Excellency [Trump] that some have tried to promote whether through publishing unjust statements that are taken out of their context or by means of unrealistic media commentaries and analyses about his Excellency.
It is pretty telling when the head of a major Muslim country believes Trump is being fair with his travel ban. If only liberals throughout the country would listen to logic.
