According to President Donald J.Trump's own financial disclosures, he has business dealings in 25 countries and none of them include the seven countries on the ban list. And, yet, the world's leading sponsor of Islamic extremism - Saudi Arabia - is conveniently nowhere to be found on this list. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that every US President has turned a blind eye to Saudi Arabia's dirty dealings. Why? Oil. Oil. Oil. The other explanation may be that Trump did not include any Muslim majority country that he has business interests in. Making significant political decisions as "leader of the free world" fueled more by your own business interests than the interests of the country you are in charge of is not only unethical, it's criminal as well. If Trump survives this sloppy start to his administration and makes it through his first term, he will truly earn the title of the "Teflon Don."
