President Trump cites the “COURT BREAKDOWN” for allowing numerous refugees from flagged countries into the United States last week.
Interesting statistic should Trump’s figures prove to hold any water.
And if they don’t, or if there is the slightest semantic disjunction in his Tweet, you can count on the media to gather around such a rebuttal like a swarm of vermin.
72% of refugees admitted into U.S. (2/3 -2/11) during COURT BREAKDOWN are from 7 countries: SYRIA, IRAQ, SOMALIA, IRAN, SUDAN, LIBYA & YEMEN

The parameters are clear.
Trump has laid out a cautionary pre-narrative that puts us on alert: of these refugees, how many are looking for 72 virgins in the United States?
The motto can be “72 for 72.”
