‘The guy who conceived this iPhone was conceived by an immigrant’

Thomas Friedman: "Some Things Are True Even If Donald Trump Believes Them" (RealClearPolitics)

THOMAS FRIEDMAN, NEW YORK TIMES: Chuck, some things are true even if Donald Trump believes them. I think we always have to remember that. One thing is true. We live in an age where there are 65 million migrants traveling around the world. That is more than anytime in recorded history according to you, a modern reference. So there is a need I think to sit back and say how do we respond to that, what is the commercial interest we have, what is the ethical interest we have, our historical commitment?

It really needs to be thought out. If you do that carefully and it seems to be one of the terrible signals we may be sending is to a lot of people is just don't go there and let's remember, this is an iPhone.

The guy who conceived this iPhone was conceived by an immigrant to the University of Wisconsin. His name was Abdul Fattah Jandali, he was Steve Jobs' biological father. He was from Homs, Syria.
