Trump proposed values test for immigrants
On Monday Donald Trump proposed an ideological test to keep would-be immigrants with radical views out of the U.S. Trump outlined his proposal in an Ohio speech laying out his plan for fighting Islamic terrorism. He proposed that only “those who share our values and respect our people” should be admitted into the U.S. “In the Cold War, we had an ideological screening test. The time is long overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today. I call it extreme vetting. I call it extreme, extreme vetting,” Trump said. “Our country has enough problems. We don’t need more.”
Justin Bieber quits Instagram
Justin Bieber had threatened to delete his Instagram account after fans left less-than-pleasant comments on his pictures with new gal pal Sofia Richie, a 17-year-old model. “I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate,” Bieber wrote in a caption of a black and white photo of himself and Richie. “This is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.” Despite his warning, apparently the hate continued, and as of Tuesday, Bieber’s account points to an error page that reads: “Sorry, this page isn’t available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed. Go back to Instagram.” For now, the singer’s Twitter and Facebook accounts are still available to his fans.
