Krauthammer on New Travel Ban: ‘It Will Be Symbolism and Not Much More’

‘I’m not against what was ordered but I don’t think it is going to make a dime’s worth of difference’

KRAUTHAMMER: "The original order, struck down by the courts, was not going to accomplish anything. Now that it is watered down, it is going to accomplish even less. I'm not against what was ordered but I don't think it is going to make a dime's worth of difference. The fact is, we have been told originally that this order had to be done immediately because the bad guys were waiting to flood into the country. We couldn't wait, we had to implement the suspension. It turned out that they are saying we are going to wait ten days on this. Look, it is symbolism. The six nations are not the most important in terms of terrorism. Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, others are. They are not on the list. It will be symbolism and not much more."
