Trump Claims Kuwait Also Banned Muslims. Kuwait’s Response Is Perfect

President Donald Trump’s efforts to find any kind of support for his unconstitutional Muslim “travel” ban apparently include dabbling in the “fake news” he complains about so often. Trump is actually peddling Islamophobic conspiracy theories and lies to his followers.

On Thursday, Trump posted a link to a Jordanian click-bait agitprop website that said that the Middle Eastern nation of Kuwait had also issued a “Trump-esque” visa ban to five Muslim-majority nations. “Syrians, Iraqis, Iranians, Pakistanis and Afghans will not be able to obtain visit, tourism or trade Kuwaiti visas with the news coming one day after the US slapped its own restrictions on seven Muslim-majority countries” reads the article. It was shared more than 70,000 times by Trump fans and was subsequently picked up by far-right propaganda outlets like Breitbart, Infowars, and Russian state-run Sputnik. Only Sputnik has bothered to post a retraction.

Of course, the accusation is absolutely ridiculous, considering that Kuwait itself is an overwhelmingly Muslim nation. That much was made clear when the Kuwaiti government issued an angry statement debunking the story and sent extremely thinly veiled criticisms at Trump for his discriminatory ban.
