The Iraqi interpreter for “American Sniper” Chris Kyle came to the defense of President Donald Trump’s refugee travel ban and had some blunt advice for those who oppose it.
Johnny Walker, who worked for Kyle during the Iraq War, joined Taya Kyle, the widow of the United States Navy SEAL veteran and sniper on Fox News Channel’s “The First 100 Days” on Monday to discuss the president’s executive order imposing travel restrictions for refugees into the country.
The order, which bars for 90 days people entering the U.S. from Libya, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, and Somalia, has made Walker feel safer.
“When my kids are going to go to school in the morning, I do not need to worry and act like I’m in Iraq and have to have my gun,” Walker said. “I don’t want to have that feeling back.”
Walker had a strong message for those who have been protesting the order and resisting Trump’s efforts.
“Just be American. If you love America more than anything else, you will understand Trump’s decision is for your own benefit,” Walker said. “If you disagree with Trump, and you love your country, go back to your country.”
Walker pointed out that he and other interpreters would probably not be affected in the long term by the ban, which he emphasized would only be for 90 days.
“I think the problem is not three months ban on refugees,” he concluded. “I think the problem is with politics.”
