Iran has started a ban on Americans traveling to Iran.
Now where in the hell am I suppose to go on vacation now?
My options are down to Kandahar Afghanistan, Mogadeshu Samalia, Pyongyang North Korea, or Detroit.
Is the racist troll Whodey happy that US President Trump has forcibly divided Iranian-American families?
"Iranians stranded by US ban tells of jobs at risk and families in disarray:
Some say border guards asked for social network passports along with other personal information."

"Trita Parsi, the president of the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), whose
organisation has followed many such cases, said on Twitter: “I want to repeat:
Green card holders were handcuffed, their social media was reviewed, and they were
asked their views on Trump.” "
"Kiana Karimi, a 34-year-old PhD student based in New York who holds an American
passport, travelled to Egypt two weeks ago and arrived at JFK airport on Saturday.
She said she ended up in a room with other people with visa ban issues after a
secondary evaluation on her American passport was required.
“At least for the 15 minutes that I was waiting in that line, I didn’t see a single white
person among us. Yes, a line of only brown and black people who predominantly
seemed Muslim were in a separate line from other citizen passengers,” she told the Guardian. "
"Nazanin Zinouri was visiting family in Iran when she heard about Trump’s plan to
impose visa bans. She wrote on her Facebook that she booked tickets quickly but was
taken off the plane in Dubai.
“After almost seven years of living in the United States, I got deported,” she said. “No
one warned me when I was leaving, no one cared what will happen to my dog or my job
or my life there. No one told me what I should do with my car that is still parked at the
airport parking. Or what to do with my house and all my belongings.” "
I don't expect the many racist trolls here to have any empathy for anyone of Iranian heritage.
The United States and the American people already have a common international reputation as deeply racist.
What US President Trump's doing will only enhance this 'Ugly American' reputation.
