Trump shares fake news? That itself smacks of fake news.

Trump comments aren't fake news, they are lies!

The Jordanian news outlet posted a correction to their story:

Correction --- Kuwait already had its own Trump-esque visa ban in place for five Muslim-majority countries

The ban, which was covered by a number of outlets including the BBC, appears to have been imposed unofficially. Local sources have told us that in 2011 and 2012, they attempted to bring in speakers from these countries for various events and were told that they could not. In certain instances, personal favors were granted by senior government officials allowing some visitors.

This article has been updated to reflect the fact that the ban came into force, unofficially, in 2011 and was not a reaction to Donald Trump's recent executive order. Sources have told The New Arab that citizens from a number of countries mentioned above and in particular Syrians, have great difficulty in obtaining visas for Kuwait even if they have family members there and fulfill all visa requirements.
