Musicians are reacting to President Donald Trump’s executive order Friday (Jan. 27) to ban citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States in the coming months.
President Trump says the ban is necessary to prevent "radical Islamic terrorists" from entering the nation, the Associated Press reports. Musical artists, however, strongly disagree with the new president’s latest controversial executive order.
Musician and activist Chuck D expressed his displeasure over the news on social media. “Expect artists to be banned & jailed by 2020 in the USA,” he he tweeted. “im clear on this.”
