Theodore Roosevelt

26th President of the United States (1901-1909)

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an
American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it
is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is
predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can
be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an
American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which
symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a
nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English
language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

The leftist media would have you believe that Donald Trump is too reactionary, too racist, and too
xenophobic to be president. Unfortunately for liberals, history is at odds with their claims.

President Theodore Roosevelt, also a Republican, signed a bill that banned practicing Muslims from
entering the United States after he won the election in 1904. He won that election with 336 electoral
votes, 190 more than his challenger, Alton B. Parker.

Sure, times have changed in the past hundred years, but polling data suggests that Trump's ban, even
in its most controversial form, is supported by the majority of the United States. It's another fact
that the mainstream media conveniently forgets when attacking the President's actions.
