Liberals Argue that Trump’s Travel Ban will be a Terrorist Recruiting Tool, but They’re Wrong

According to Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), Jordan’s King Abdullah, with whom he recently spoke, lent credence to his conviction that Donald Trump’s travel ban will be used as a recruitment tool by ISIS. Cardin, who was a guest on CNN’s “New Day,” explained:

We give them material for recruitment when we impose what is said to be a ‘Muslim ban.’ That’s how it’s perceived internationally. That’s used by ISIS to say, ‘It’s relevant to join us in this fight against the West.’

We’ve heard this argument before, in slightly altered form, from then-President Barack Obama, who argued on behalf of shutting down the U.S. military detention center at Guantanamo Bay on the grounds that it could be used as a recruitment tool.
