"I really don't understand why it's okay for a British company to operate our ports, but not a company from the Middle East"
Maybe he has forgotten a little incident called 9/11? Weren't 2 of the hijackers from the UAE? 3,000 innocent Americans died that day, and our president says that he sees no reason to hold Middle Eastern countries to a higher security standard? That sounds like conservative political correctness run amok, at the expense of our safety.
