Trump Supporters Agree With Travel Ban Despite Protests

Thousands across the country rallied on Jan. 28 and 29 to oppose the executive order signed by President Donald Trump restricting travel for Muslim immigrants and refugees. However, some have been more quietly supporting the action.

"He's going to do what he says and says what he does," one person told the Associated Press, referring to Trump. "That's a little frightening for some people."

"We're not the world's Social Security office. We're not here to take care of people," another said. "I understand that people need help, but there are other ways besides bringing them here."

But not all Trump supporters are 100 percent happy with the executive order.

One said that "blitzing everybody" with the ban may not have been the best way to go.

However, that person does support Trump's policies. "I think he's shaking it up, the whole of Washington, D.C., and half the country, like he said he would."

Following Trump's executive order to restart construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline, one Twitter user tweeted: "Americans are against the Dakota pipeline!! Not what I voted for!!! Bad idea! Bad plan! Please rethink this [first]!"

When Trump tweeted his support of the March for Life, following the millions who rallied against his following the inauguration, one user tweeted: "[W]hat a hypocrite. I supported you until ur stupid stand on abortion, sad."

But another Trump supporter seemingly likes that the president "means what he says," adds the AP. "He's just unafraid. He's just going ahead like a locomotive, and I like him more and more every time he does something."

"I couldn't be more pleased with what he's done," another supporter said in agreement. "We're in that kind of world where to ignore the possibility that even one person out of 10,000 has ill intentions is foolish."
