This decision led to voracious backlash against Donald Trump not only from the affected nations but even from the American House of Representatives.
Through this brouhaha coupled with the just concluded impeachment trial against Mr Trump, I can't help but wonder whats so different about this policy than the other's the business mogul-cum-president has adopted in the course of his administration.
Well, colour me the Devil's Advocate but I will say that the ban on transgenders joining the United States military still takes the cake on Trump's list of "crazy policies".....yes, even the building of the wall.
We have America, a state projecting freedom as a core value, with a population of over 1.4 million transgender people as it 2016. With a statistical rate of doubling over the course of 5 years it is safe to say that the population of trannies as at 2019 was over 2 million, majority of whom are youths at the age for signing up to join the army.
Despite the continuous acceptance and "struggle" for LGBT rights in America as well as the increased number of states supporting the community, President Donald Trump issued a ban against transgenders in the military as well as restricted any from the tranny community from joining the armed forces.
In his words: "whoever finds that God made a mistake by creating him man or woman and decided to change sex, can't hope to work for a government that believes in God." Which the US justice system sanctioned by legalising this policy against the people and youths of America, a country known for it's emphasis on FREEDOM.
So if he could do that in the one country that openly embraces the LGBTQ community and weather the resulting backlash, if he could successfully put up his wall and then survive an absolutely damning impeachment trial, I don't see a reason why everyone is going bonkers on him placing a visa ban/restriction on Nigeria.
Every country has the right to enact policies critical to its economic and political growth, China did it with the policy of isolation, Nigeria did it by closing it's borders against the influx of foreign goods and so many others.
Rather than we bemoaning the hassle it will take to acquire an American Visa why don't we turn our sights inward work on our nation, leave other countries to their "crazy policies" and strive at being a nation who policies will be relevant enough to set the global community scampering about.
