It must be remembered that during the run-up to the November elections in the United States, then Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump promised to ban all Muslims from immigration to the United States.

This promise has been severely watered-down to a "temporary" ban on immigration from seven African and Asian countries, which President Trump signed on Friday.

Then ban, which denies entry to the United States to people from Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somali, Sudan and Syria from entering the United States for 90 days, has been largely criticized by world leaders, some of who have called it divisive, discriminatory, and illegal.
