Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, has walked back from his call to suspend Muslim immigration into our country — probably as a result of someone on his occasionally reliable staff pointing out that such an act would be blatantly unconstitutional.

Now he wants to bar entry to people from countries riddled with terrorism.

I guess that means we must exclude travelers from France and Germany, where acts of terrorism seem to occur every few weeks.

The U.K. is probably OK, as they have kept a lid on terrorism recently. But you never know, we might have to ban Brits as well.
