Speaker of US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi on Saturday, February 1, thrashed President Donald Trump over the inclusion of Nigeria and five different nations to the US travel boycott list.
Pelosi expressed that the Trump Administration’s development of the movement boycott list is over the top, weakens security, values, and the standard of law in the North-American nation.

In her announcement, the House Speaker said they would be passing a “no boycott demonstration” against the foreigner visa sanction to deny rigorous separation in America’s movement, and limit the President’s capacity to force such limitations she depicted as “one-sided and biased.”
Pelosi’s statement read; “The Trump Administration’s expansion of its outrageous, un-American travel ban threatens our security, our values and the rule of law. The sweeping rule, barring more than 350 million individuals from predominantly African nations from traveling to the United States, is discrimination disguised as policy. .
“America’s strength has always been as a beacon of hope and opportunity for people around the world, whose dreams and aspirations have enriched our nation and made America more American. With this latest callous decision, the President has doubled down on his cruelty and further undermined our global leadership, our Constitution and our proud heritage as a nation of immigrants. .
“In the Congress and in the Courts, House Democrats will continue to oppose the Administration’s dangerous anti-immigrant agenda. In the coming weeks, the House Judiciary Committee will mark-up and bring to the Floor the NO BAN Act to prohibit religious discrimination in our immigration system and limit the President’s ability to impose such biased and bigoted restrictions. We will never allow hatred or bigotry to define our nation or destroy our values.” .
