In October 2015, Donald Trump told the Washington Post that he did not want the United States to host Syrian refugees because he said there's a possibility they might be a massive terrorist army in disguise.
"They could be ISIS -- I don't know," Trump told a large crowd at a rally.

So on Friday, when Trump signed a sweeping executive order that he billed as a necessary step to stop “radical Islamic terrorists” from coming to America, those without the memory of a goldfish knew that it would happen. And that it would be one of the first things that would happen.
Included is a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. by citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen and a 120-day suspension of the U.S. refugee program.
Trump’s order singled out Syrians for the most aggressive ban, ordering that any Muslims from that country, including those fleeing civil war, are indefinitely blocked from coming to the United States.
Persecuted Syrian Christians, however, will now be given priority.

On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took to Twitter, where he posted a message to the Muslim migrants that are now rejected by U.S. : Canada will take you.
"To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada," Trudeau wrote.
