Susan Heavey, Doina Chiacu - Reuters:
U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday continued to defend his controversial immigration order, saying disruptions at airports over the weekend were due to Delta Air Lines and protesters, and that U.S. Secretary John Kelly has said the implementation of the new restrictions is going well.
“Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning. Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage … protesters and the tears of Senator (Chuck) Schumer. Secretary Kelly said that all is going well with very few problems. MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN!” Trump said on Twitter.
Delta suffered a system outage Sunday night.
Mr. Trump’s Executive Order was issued two days before the quoted Delta Airlines computer outage. Crowds spontaneously gathered in the hours after. Two federal court judges separately limited the effect of Trump’s nonsense Saturday. Delta’s computer problems had nothing to do with crowds of protesters, disruptions at airports, or anything else to do with Trump’s political gaffe.
Lie about the past to control the present. Trump is nothing if not predictable.
