truIran said on Saturday it would stop U.S. citizens entering the country in retaliation to Washington’s visa ban against Tehran and six other majority-Muslim countries announced by new U.S. President Donald Trump.

“While respecting the American people and distinguishing between them and the hostile policies of the U.S. government, Iran will implement the principle of reciprocity until the offensive U.S. limitations against Iranian nationals are lifted,” a Foreign Ministry statement said.

“The restrictions against travel by Muslims to America… are an open affront against the Muslim world and the Iranian nation in particular and will be known as a great gift to extremists,” said the statement, carried by state media.

  1. How many of those poor downtrodden refugees, those huddled masses, has Iran taken in?
    Their own moose limb brethren from Syria, Somalia, Iraq….?

    They will retaliate by not admitting all those millions of Americans wishing to visit the glorious country of Iran? How very threatening.

  2. Oh flip, I guess my ticket I booked to Tehran for my Honeymoon will be cancelled. I’ll blame it on The Donald. How mean of him to ruin my once in a lifetime Vacation to Tehran. When I say once in a lifetime , I meant it.

  3. at first it seemed bad, but in retrospect it seems like it would protect those immigrants from being here, there’s better places for them to be(like anywhere at all),
    frankly i wish he would ban jews at this point to protect them from here.

    i believe his wall might actually end up being used by mexico to trap americans in here. they should hurry up, build it and use it to stop the gmo americans from coming in.

  4. i could picture a big war or something where everybody tries to leave(or the big leak showing americans r all gmo’s & their ‘intells been deciding who mates with who for like 10 generations in a row(apparently).. surprise! theyre all trapped, giant quarentine!

    if a rational person truly deeply cared about muslims, & mexicans and all of humanity this might actually be the exact policy they persue 🙂

    im in favor of these policies for the benefit of humanity.

    hey, why dont you kick all the blacks and jews out trump, do us a favor, please, seriously, i beg u. kick whats left of the natives out too, makes just as much sense, theyre coming w us!

    u sure all the non-red i’s & g’s would even want to stay w them? well the small fraction they left & then propagated very well might!

  5. mr iran foreign minister: you mean we can’t go on that long awaited vacation to your wonderful country Iran? no, please don’t do this to us! what are we going to do??
