‘Why would we invite this here?’
Hours after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals allowed travellers from Iran to enter America, Iranians showed their appreciation.

As if to prove President Donald Trump’s point about his travel ban thousands of Iranians took to the streets to chant “death to America” on Friday. The rally marked the nation’s anniversary of its 1979 revolution, Reuters reported.
The protesters carried effigies of President Trump and others stepped on his picture, according to Reuters.
Bizpac Review reports,
Some carried banners that read “Death To America” and “Thanks Mr Trump for showing the real face of America.”
“America and Trump cannot do a damn thing. We are ready to sacrifice our lives for our leader” one of the marchers told Iranian state TV.
This after President Obama eased sanctions on the Islamic regime and shipped them, literally, airplanes full of cash.
