Chris Kyle's Iraqi Interpreter Defends Trump's Travel Ban
The Iraqi man who worked as "American Sniper" Chris Kyle's interpreter during the Iraq War says he agrees with President Donald Trump's travel ban, and he has some strong words for the protesters who are resisting the executive order.
On "The First 100 Days" tonight, Martha MacCallum was joined by the interpreter, Johnny Walker, and Kyle's widow, Taya Kyle.
Walker said that he feels safer after the order, which bars visa entry to the U.S. for 90 days for people coming from seven countries: Libya, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, and Somalia.
He explained that he wants to send his children to school and go about his life without the constant threat of a terror attack, as there had been in Iraq.
As for those who are protesting the travel ban, Walker had a strong message for them.
"Just be American. If you love America more than anything else, you will understand Trump's decision is for your own benefit," Walker said. "If you disagree with Trump, and you love your country, go back to your country."
Kyle pointed out that this isn't a "Muslim ban," since travel is not being restricted to many Muslim-majority countries.
She said the ban is simply focused on hotbeds of terrorism, and it has nothing to do with religion.
"These are basic safety concerns that I think anyone would do for their personal home, and I think we need to give the same respect to the country."
