Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has reacted to US President, Donald Trump’s ban on Muslims and refugees in a new post on Facebook.
The founder of the social media giant said the United States was “a nation of immigrants” and that he was concerned of the President’s actions.
On Friday, President Trump signed an executive order denying people from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia entry to the USA for 90 days.
In reaction to the effect, Zuckerberg said:
“These issues are personal for me even beyond my family.
My great grandparents came from Germany, Austria and Poland. [My wife’s] parents were refugees from China and Vietnam.
“The United States is a nation of immigrants, and we should be proud of that.”
