If people are expected to stay at home at not travel, it kinda follows that people should not be travelling into the US at this time, especially since they don't have a place to stay and all.

Trump made a good call, as usually.

Que the 100 negative comments that stem from partisanship and emotion rather that sensibility and love of country.

Hmmmm....I wonder if this applies to all the illegal immigrants he employs at his properties?????

Who's going to turn down those bed-sheets and water those fairways and greens????

Maybe they could ride in on AF 1!

Project US jobs? He just had to add that didn't he....

Wow... is Covid-19 a problem or is it not a problem? Make up your mind.

8 ( +9 / -1 )

excellent decision. If Americans need to stay at home, so do non citizens.

Once there is full agreement that it is safe to reopen our economy and for everyone to go back to work, we can begin a targeted invitation for immigrants again.

I think the timeline to "safety" just sped up considerably.

Haaa Nemui,

What are you talking about?

Is there another article on JT where the president asked other people not to make it political?

Trump says governors playing 'political game' with virus tests

https://japantoday.com/category/world/white-house-to-hold-call-with-governors-on-testing-supplies

The administration recently announced an easing of rules to allow in more agricultural workers on temporary H2A visas to help farmers with their crops.

It makes it easier for trump and friends to hire illegals for pennies on the dollar.

Kind of at odds with his supporters taking to the streets, isn't it.

Que the 100 negative comments that stem from partisanship and emotion rather that sensibility and love of country.

Is loving a country not emotional?

Is wanting to keep people safe from the virus partisan?

Trump, Jan. 22

“We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”

— CNBC interview

Trump Feb. 27

“It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

— News conference

Trump, Feb. 10

“Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.”

— New Hampshire rally

What a freaking crank...

And what percent of agriculture/abattoir workers are illegal?

6 ( +6 / -0 )

its not political. Why would we invite people from other countries to live and work in America right now?

-6 ( +3 / -9 )

So....the train wreck of a country that is now the epicenter of the global pandemic doesn't want people moving there because it wants to protect jobs that don't exist anymore anyway?

OK then.

Adverts,

January 31-2 people contracted.

February 29-27 people contracted.

Can't close the country for that. You'll never be happy because you hate the president as a person. Left hate him and right like him.

@blacklabelits not political.

Curious, then what partisan extremists, even those with zero regard for honesty, would call a decision made by a politician.

just a pen and a phone, like the other guy said.

I don't think he said kick everyone out he just said to stop incoming at the moment.

certain posters here have continuously claimed that Covid-19 is no big deal, yet now that Trump has suspended immigration temporarily it's a good call. I think it's a good thing to limit movement at this time but these messages from this administration and its supporters are really all over the place. This is more like an excuse to target immigration than a plan to reduce the spread of the virus.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

almost all of those jobs still exist or will exist then the building they work in opens back up. Just the opposition wont let anyone return to them.

While now advocating that it is perfectly safe for immigrants to come live and work. in the same places that Americans cant even go for a car ride because its supposedly so dangerous.

So basically you have a decision to make. Not safe for Americans means not safe for immigrants. So is it safe now, or do you expect it to become safe momentarily? or are we still on the 12-18 month plan?

wants to protect jobs that don't exist anymore anyway?

Trump got it half right. He needs to send back the others who came in illegally.

...until the courts tell him it's illegal... Invalid CSRF

Point - Can't close the country for that. You'll never be happy because you hate the president as a person. Left hate him and right like him.

Rubbish the whole idea is to stop new arrivals with the virus. Not seal the borders after the U.S. has become the freaking GLOBAL epicentre - Trump downplayed it because he's utterly out of his depth and inept as a leader.

Pretty solid ground to call the man a crank if you ask me. People supporting him now are all wither delusional or in Denial.

He said he’d do that when he was campaigning.

That sort of just disappeared later on.

That's why if people like you would support better wages and less greedy white collar criminals raping everyone blind, there wouldn't be a need for illegal immigrants wanting to make a living. Yet again its much easier to post negative comments than a solution. Quit being the cause and supporting negativism towards a sitting President and provide solutions to your Congressman.

Adverts,

That's right. The W.H.O and Fauci said there was nothing to worry about. You can't say anything about that thought eh?

Point - I'm talking about what the president of the United States said. And it is damning.

HaaaNemui,

Cancer, Heart disease/stroke, obesity and diabetes kill millions annually in the US alone. Why is tobacco, alcohol, sugary foods and deep fried foods still allowed to be sold?

Let's face it...you hate the president no matter what. Please do some research on the the past W.H.O and Fauci comments about the virus not being a concern. I think Trump is doing exactly what his medical experts are saying. To think other wise is silly.

Madverts,

I know but you say nothing about the others which is proof that it's more about your hate towards Trumps than anything else. You are always slagging him off so...

Madverts,

I am also amazed that no lefties on the board have not criticized Cuomo...That guy totally messed up and the state failure is his responsibility not Trumps. That is just a fact.

The Donald has a bad case of the slows in terms of both thinking and acting. He should’ve never been made president. This is a good example of why presidential elections are so important.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

he just made the most genius move of his presidency.

It cant be unsafe for Americans to go back to work but safe for immigrants to come to the USA to work.

We have 22 million people available for work who dont have a job. No need for immigrants to do those jobs that Americans "wont do". there is no such job as that right now.

Lets see how soon the USA becomes safe now. It will be good when states starts to spend energy towards positive actions and reopening instead of being all negative and resisting.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

A murderously inept regime, playing up its base.

its not political. Why would we invite people from other countries to live and work in America right now?

You're saying there's a risk of infection and or death.

And yet, the Trump generation is supporting the demonstrators who are not protesting for UBI, or rent freezes or healthcare. Nope, they're marching from their right to possibly perish in order to make the ruling class richer.

Last comment here for this article;

How is that no matter what time of day or night Trump tweets, the liberal media can always get 4 or 5 Democratic lawmakers to issue an immediate statement of opposition through them?

does the media have all these guys on speed dial and call them like "hey wake up, Trump just tweeted, any comment?" It cant even wait until morning.

Yes, I've seen the reports about WHO and Fauci, and I also know about the other health conditions. Please explain why immigration has been temporarily halted for Covid-19 and none of those other things you mentioned have been banned. Even your messages are all over the place.

How is it that partisan extremists with zero regard for honesty can sniff out so many plots, especially way before something they call 'the media' knows. Uncanny, infowars/National Enquirer level stuff. Kudos!

Well, isn't that interesting - Trump hires these illegal immigrants at his properties and pays them sub-union wages, and that is somehow my fault. Since I didn't write my congressman, Donnie was forced to hire illegals...

And I suppose it's also my fault Trump gives millions in contracts to Chinese companies to make his clothing line?

And they deny it's a cult...

Saying that conservatives read Infowars is like saying liberals are glued to “the View.”

Conservatives read/watch Info Wars and read the right wing The Federalist. They say so themselves.

Not all conservatives watch or read infowars or the National Enquirer. The intelligent and rational ones don’t.

Why would he have to? Censure him like the libs do? Then they need to silence Pelosi forever then.
