If the Obama Administration had instituted the Ban... it still would have been a good thing.
Eraser isn't American, so he doesn't have "Trump Derangement Syndrome," he views from the eyes of a European. Also, I mean, there is a derangement syndrome involving Trump, but it doesn't involve being against him, but excusing all his awful and flat-out dumb decisions.
I agree, though, that this one isn't necessarily dumb. However, I do not believe Trump has thought it through, prepared for contingency, or really done this out of anything other than a combination of self-interest and his weird, wonky, generally misguided sense of fairness. That doesn't mean the outcome will be bad, but we're doing something very risky that can have very wide ranging and long lasting implications, and we're trusting one of the most overconfident, underintelligent men in the world to lead us through it.
