President Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election by a slim margin, but his administration has already begun to make some changes to the countrys immigration policy.
According to a report by the National Review, Trump’s administration has been considering “extreme vetting” for all refugees and visa holders from countries that the Trump administration deems “major threat.”
The report, which is authored by conservative journalist and immigration hawk William Kristol, says that “a Trump presidency would be good for the United States and bad for the world.”
The administration has also begun to “reject the most extreme” of Trump’s rhetoric about Muslims and Muslims in general, Kristol writes, and the government is now considering “reformist immigration reform measures.”
“These are just the latest signs that a Trump presidency will not be good,” Kristol said in an interview with The New York Times.
“It is a very big deal.”
Kristol and the NR editorial board, which has a reputation for being anti-immigration, have been a major force behind the current anti-Muslim sentiment sweeping America, particularly since the November 2016 election.
The anti-refugee sentiment has gained steam since Trump’s inauguration in January, with more than two-thirds of Americans agreeing with Kristol’s assertion that refugees “should be kept out of the country.”
The anti, anti-immigrant sentiment has even been bolstered by Trump’s refusal to take in refugees.
Kristol told The New Yorker in an article published last month that Trump “does not care if [refugees] are Muslim, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, or atheist, and will not take them.
I mean, he does not care what they are.
He will take whatever is in front of him.”
Kristal said that the President “is a real threat, not a populist who is going to come along and take whatever’s in front, but an extremist who is just going to throw his weight around and do whatever he wants.”
Kristols piece also highlights how Kristol believes that Trump will “continue to be able to do whatever it takes to advance his racist agenda.”
He believes that, if the President were to “just do it quietly and just not say anything about it,” “he can still make a difference.”
In a New York Magazine piece published earlier this year, Kristal argued that Trump’s “political rise and his political success has made him a master at creating an atmosphere of suspicion, fear, and paranoia, and he is going about it very quietly and very quietly, as he has done since the election.”
Kristahl said that “there’s not much Trump has to do to change the direction of the party” in the United State.
“The Republicans will not change anything unless he does,” Kristal wrote.
“I think that’s what the Democrats need to understand.
They’ve had enough of being lied to.
They have enough of not knowing who they are voting for.
They know they’re voting for a person who has no credibility.”
“Trump has a history of saying whatever he thinks is necessary to advance himself,” Kristahls former wife, former ABC News chief anchor, said in the same article.
“But he’s not the first to do it.
There’s a long history of presidents, in both parties, doing it quietly, even though it may be wrong, because they don’t want to be seen as taking sides.
That’s what we’re seeing now, is that Trump is taking the lead.
He is telling the people of the United Stated that he wants to change things.”
Trump has previously dismissed the idea that he would “take in” Muslims from the Middle East, arguing that he only wants to “protect the country” from “radical Islamic terrorists.”
On Tuesday, Kristols column said that, “as the president, [Trump] has a responsibility to be a champion for the interests of the American people.”
He added that Trump does not have a “legitimate role” to take “our country backward” by “trying to take the place of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.”
Kristohls piece also argued that, despite Trump’s claims of wanting to keep the country safe, the United Kingdom will be safer in the long term.
Kristal pointed out that Britain “is no longer a major global center for radical Islamic terror,” and that the country “has been able to survive for a very long time because of the support of the British government.”
Kristiahl told The Atlantic that he has “no doubt” that Trump would have “a huge impact” on the United Kingdoms policies, and that he is “willing to make a deal to make things better in the short term.”
Kristoll said that Trump should “leave it up to the British Parliament” to decide how to handle immigration from Muslim countries.
“Trump would not be doing himself or the country a lot of harm,” Kristoll told The Telegraph.
“He is a real problem, and his words and actions do not represent the values of the vast majority of
