Iran: Trump Travel Ban Ruling Is ‘Racist’ and ‘Unfair’
Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman called the U.S. Supreme Court ruling to re-instate parts of President Trump’s travel ban “racist” and “unfair.” Bahram Ghasemi, on state TV Wednesday, called it “regrettable” that the U.S. “closes its eyes to the main perpetrators of terrorist acts” within its borders. He did not elaborate on the comments. The ban targets six Muslim-majority nations, including Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Yemen, and Somalia. Justices will hear full case arguments in October, the High Court announced this week.
