Hillary Tweets Articles Posing Issues With Trump's Ban

Hillary Clinton tweeted Tuesday that she was thinking of two things in relation to Donald Trump's ban: an article calling Trump's order "un-American" by Khizr Khan, the father of a captain in the U.S. Army who gave his life to stop a suicide bomber in Iraq and an op-ed piece about an Iraqi interpreter who helped the U.S. military during the war but can reportedly no longer come to America because of the sanction.

Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, said two days ago that she stood with people gathered around the country "defending our values and our Constitution."

"This is not who we are," she tweeted, an obvious reference to Trump's order banning non-citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the country for at least 90 days as the U.S. beefs up its vetting process.

Khan, in an interview with The New Yorker published Sunday, said Trump's ban "alienates Muslims who are patriotic citizens" and that internationally, "it has given platform to our enemies."

The op-ed piece in The New York Times was about an interpreter who helped the U.S. Marine Corps in Iraq but will no longer be able to come back to the U.S. despite six years of vetting.

"Two months ago, I got an email from Frank," wrote author Zachary Iscol. "He was still living in Baghdad with daily fears for his and his family's safety. After six years of vetting, including what seemed like countless interviews and background checks by various government agencies, he had finally been cleared to come to the United States with his pregnant wife and 18-month-old son. My wife and I began to prepare our guest room for their arrival."
