The US president, Donald Trump has said that Christians seeking refugee status in the United States will be given priority status than the Muslims.
While speaking to the Christian Broadcasting Network, Donald Trump said it was impossible, or tough for Christians to enter the United States, while the Muslim were given a quick pass. Donald Trump said;
If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair -- everybody was persecuted, in all fairness -- but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians. And I thought it was very, very unfair. So we are going to help them.
The president did not give evidence for his accusation, and why the Department of Homeland Security and State Department would have given Muslims quick pass to the United states than the Christians. According to a non-partisan Pew research centre, 99% of those that were admitted into the USA were Muslims, with only 1% to be Christians.
The CIA World fact book said that 87% of Syrians are Muslims, and 10% are Christians.
