“They can tell you what they want you to hear and they can keep that up for many, many years…And then, eventually when it’s time, they’ll do what they believe is right…If that is to hurt an American – or hurt many of us at one time – they’re going to do it.”
Former U.S. Marine, Steven Gern returned to the United States last week after a video the private security contractor posted to his Facebook page while in Iraq went viral.
Days after President Donald Trump issued Executive Order 13769 (Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States), Gern made a short video sharing the discussions he had with Iraqis incensed by the EO.
The video went viral racking up 44 million views after which Gern was informed by his private security contractor that his life was in danger and for his safety, he had to return to America.
Gern discussed the video and the discussion with local Iraqis on Fox News, Sean Hannity Friday night.
Steven Gern’s video, which was posted from Iraq and has been viewed more than 44 million times, came just a few days after President Trump’s executive order triggered massive protests at U.S. airports.
The order temporarily banned travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Iraq, Iran and Syria.
Gern relayed a short message about conversations he had about the controversial order with Iraqis. He said he asked them what would happen if he, an American, “went out in town.”
“[I asked] would I be welcome? And they instantly said, ‘Absolutely not. You would not be welcome,'” Gern recalled[…]
Below is Gern’s video originally posted to his Facebook page which pretty much vindicates our President.
