Legendary boxer Mike Tyson made it clear he’s not a fan of Syrians fleeing the country on a podcast discussion with host Peter Rosenberg.
Titled, “Mike Tyson: Bite the Mic with Peter Rosenberg,” the podcast addressed the topic of Muslims in Syria and President Donald Trump’s refugee policy on Monday. Tyson didn’t hold back his aggressive feelings toward allowing refugees into the country.
“Mike, if you were still Muslim he would not want you in the country,” Rosenberg claimed about Trump’s policy.
It didn’t take Tyson long to fire back at Rosenberg’s accusation. “I am Muslim and I’m in the country…..If I was in Syria I wouldn’t be here. I’d be fighting in the war. I wouldn’t be a coward trying to leave. I’d be fighting for my country,” Tyson hollered back.
Unfortunately for Tyson, convicted felons are not permitted to serve in the United States military. Tyson, a convicted rapist, would never be allowed to fight for this country. It’s unclear what Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad and his military’s stance are on the enlistment of convicted rapists.
The Supreme Court partially restored President Trump’s executive order in June, and the administration has established new rules for visa applicants coming to the U.S. from those six countries that have been flagged as sponsors of terrorism.
All new applicants who want to come to the United States from Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Iran and Yemen must prove that they have a relationship with a parent, spouse, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling already living in the U.S. to be eligible.
Last year, Tyson endorsed the president, saying: “I like Trump, yeah. He should be president.
