Hannah arendt, in the Origins of Totalitarianism, explained how hitler’s unfounded hatred of and p ersecution of jews, made them into the very thing hitler accused them of being: his enemies.
Trump acts like a monstrous dictator, using his powers as best he can to sow havoc and damage.
The logic he’s used against muslims is madness. If I were to tell you, Cornelius, about a jew in Europe who became an anti-Semitic alt-right fanatic, would you then say it is right to exclude jews from Europe or Israel? It’s insane what he is doing, and you are still acting as an apologist for actions that historically accord with far right and fascist rulers

Nigeria is not among the seven nations that are temporarily banned until, as he said during his campaign, he and his team figure out "what the hell is goin' on". I suppose that there are people who could be fleeing from Boko Haram, all the way to the United States. As this Democrat from Arizona put it,
" If there is a Muslim ban, refugees can pretend they're Christians.You know, just like Republicans do"
Everyone is bashing President Trump but we could have some sympathy for him, it's not paranoia, after all he has every right to suspect that some Muslim terrorist , up to no good could want to sneak into America (US) and blow up Trump Tower just as they did with the Twin Towers.
In any case this one is likely to be issued with a visa and a green card immediately:

Trump order: Nigerians may no longer get 2-year American visa
Nigerians are at risk of losing American entry visas which have two-year validity except President Muhammadu Buhari led government change existing immigration policy with the United States.
An indication of this emerged yesterday as content on the Executive Order signed on Friday by US President Donald Trump became public.
Section 9 of the Executive Order states: “The Secretary of State shall review all nonimmigrant visa reciprocity agreements to ensure that they are, with respect to each visa classification, truly reciprocal insofar as practicable with respect to validity period and fees, as required by sections 221(c) and 281 of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1201(c) and 1351, and other treatment.
“If a country does not treat United States nationals seeking nonimmigrant visas in a reciprocal manner, the Secretary of State shall adjust the visa validity period, fee schedule, or other treatment to match the treatment of United States nationals by the foreign country, to the extent practicable…”
Currently, Nigeria issues one-year multiple-entry visa to Americans, which is a non-reciprocation of the two-year visa US issues to Nigerians.
As Trump order takes immediate effect, Nigerians holding valid two-year US visa may also be affected.
However, Nigeria charges higher fee compared to charges by the American government despite shorter visa validity.
While the US charges Nigerians $160 for a typical visit visa, Nigeria charges $180, in addition to a $35 “processing fee”.
Meanwhile, Iran has announced that it will ban all United States citizens from entering the country.
This was contained in an Iranian Foreign Ministry statement published on state media Saturday.
The country’s decision is in response to President Donald Trump‘s executive order limiting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries.
