Marine Vet In Iraq Gives Profound Msg In Support of Trump Travel Ban [VIDEO]

A Marine Corps veteran and contractor told Fox News on Friday he couldn’t believe that his video from Iraq supporting President Trump’s travel restrictions went viral — more than 44 million views and counting.


Gern said his company’s security director pulled him from the country due to the CEO’s concern for Gern’s safety. He did not disclose the name of the company in an effort to keep co-contractors currently in Iraq out of danger.

“I never thought in a million years that this would go viral, and happen over a simple conversation with my team members,” Gern told Fox News. “There are a lot of unknowns right now and what we don’t need is to continue to flood the United States with people from countries that are in such bad states when it comes to terrorism—we can’t have them come in until they are properly vetted.”

Gern said the tension and danger for Americans abroad has ramped up since the travel ban started in President Trump’s second week in office. It restricts travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iraq.

“The Iraqis, in general, have very little respect for any America –regardless of whether you’re a Marine, a contractor, or a civilian—they have very little respect for you,” Gern told Fox News. “The United States pumps more and more money and it’s not appreciated –why don’t we just take care of our own?”

Gern told Fox News he has not had contact with his company, and is concerned about losing his job after posting the video, but felt it was necessary.

“This is boots on the ground—this is what’s actually happening—I know firsthand,” Gern told Fox News. “People are being naive—they need to understand there is a reason we have processes and policies in place to protect Americans.”

Steven Gern will be LIVE in an EXCLUSIVE interview with Sean Hannity tonight at 10:00pm EST on Fox News Channel.

It’s almost as if we have forgotten about 9/11 and have gone back to the days before that horrible day.  Americans need a reminder of what we face against the Islamic fundamentalist threat.
