In an unexpected twist, the extreme vetting program that Donald Trump ordered as a backdoor Muslim ban, has prevented him from re-entering the United States.
Homeland Security reports that in following the criteria, Trump’s association with hate groups in social media and threats and hostility expressed towards American democracy and government officials, required that he not be permitted into the country.
While pacing angrily aboard Air Force One, press pool reporters overheard Trump’s reaction, “This is a load of crap! That Executive Order is only supposed to keep hateful extremists out of America! Okay, but I’m white so why is it being used against me?!”
Mike Pence was reached for comment as he was leaving the Oval Office with a tape mesaure and wall paper samples in hand. “This is a total travesty,” Pence said with a straight face that kept breaking into a grin. “Something should be done about this by somebody sometime soon if possible!”
Asked if he would just reverse the Executive Order as acting president, Pence chuckled, “I really wish I could but all those terrorists would swarm in if we put down the drawbridge. I just can’t see how we can let Mr. Trump back into the country without putting it at great risk.”
Mr. Pence was also evasive about why he had just ordered the beginning of the border wall to be built starting at Andrews Air Force Base where Air Force One is parked.
