The World Unites Agaist Trump: Merkel, May Blast ‘Draconian’ Refugee Ban

In an unprecedented development, leaders of nations around the globe have united against a U.S. president following Donald Trump’s controversial executive order banning citizens of seven Middle Eastern and African nations from entering the United States. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May on Sunday blasted the executive order as “draconian,” The World Street Journal reported.

“The chancellor regrets the U.S. government’s entry ban against refugees and citizens of certain countries,” Merkel’s spokesman said. “She is convinced that the necessary, decisive battle against terrorism does not justify a general suspicion against people of a certain origin or a certain religion.”

Theresa May’s spokesman said her government “condemns the action” and expressed concerns with the U.S. if any U.K. citizens were affected by the ban.

The executive order has caused chaos and protests at airports nationwide as foreign nationals—many of whom are legal permanent residents of the U.S. were detained.

However, the Donald Trump has dismissed the protests saying the travel ban order is “working out very nicely.”
