“Savvy!” That’s what President Trump or one of his assistants composed on Facebook a couple days back, connecting to a story by a Middle Eastern blogging website.
The feature on the Albawaba story said “Kuwait Issues Its Own Trump-esque Visa Ban for Muslim-Majority Countries.”
In any case, the namelessly sourced story is dubious. Different governments have denied it. It’s the sort of story that the president may discredit as “fake news,” were it not valuable to him.
The Facebook post went up on Trump’s legitimate page last Thursday. It increased more consideration from actuality checkers throughout the end of the week.

This thought regarding some kind of Muslim “travel boycott” by Kuwait has been a well known gossip for some time. In any case, Kuwait, through one of its official news offices, “completely denied media reports” about it last Friday.
Albawaba particularly guaranteed that “Syrians, Iraqis, Iranians, Pakistanis and Afghans won’t have the capacity to acquire visit, tourism or exchange Kuwaiti visas.”
In any case, there is no proof of any push to hinder those voyagers. In actuality, Pakistani news outlets have announced that it is untrue, refering to nearby consulate authorities.
Some sites have looked to adjust the record. One of the Russian government’s news destinations, Sputnik News, at first hopped on the talk and posted a story that said “Kuwait has tore a page from the playbook of U.S. President Donald Trump.”
Be that as it may, Sputnik later included an amendment: “The accompanying news article turned out to be untrue.”
