President Donald Trump presented himself as a defender of Christians. However, his administration recently rejected asylum applications from more than a hundred Iranian Christians. They desperately need sanctuary: the Islamic Republic is among the world’s worst religious persecutors. Does the president dislike foreigners more than he likes Christians?

The Iranians, including other non-Muslims, have been stuck in Vienna for more than a year hoping to resettle in America. They applied under the Lautenberg Amendment, which originally was passed to protect Soviet Jews.

Over the years roughly 33,000 Iranian religious minorities have entered the U.S. under its protection. Almost 1,300 were admitted under the program last year.

Band said there is “hardly an accurate or true word” in the excerpt.

Former presidential aide disputes book’s account of 2006 golf round between Bill Clinton and Tiger Woods, March 27, 2018
