US President Donald Trump allegedly signed executive orders for a visa-free travel policy for Asians who wish to go to the United States, according to websites inquirer.local-reports.com and tv-cnn.com.
According to the article, Trump supposedly signed an executive order on Monday to allow Asians to travel to the US without visa for 180 days.
The signing of the EO is also supposedly done to strengthen trade between the US and Asia.
However, Meme Buster found out that this is fake news posted by fake news sites like inquirer.local-report.com and tv-cnn.com. The two websites seem to be made as parodies of the established news sites the Philippine Daily Inquirer and CNN, respectively.
Meme Buster has already busted a few articles from tv-cnn.com such as the fake news about President Rodrigo Duterte being honored by the UN as “World Anti-Terrorism Ambassador,” Duterte being the first world leader that Trump called after he won in the US election, Trump inviting Duterte to his inauguration, and more.
We have also busted several hoaxes from local-reports.com, such as the Ghana president hailing Duterte as his role model, Thailand bank confirming the gold deposits during Aquino’s time, Russia creating 2 million jobs in the Philippines, and more.
As of writing, this fake news has been shared by the Facebook pages “I love Philippines” and “Duterte the Punisher,” with the latter’s post even getting 515 shares.
There is no truth about the signing of the executive order which will allow Asians a visa-free travel to the United States.
However, President Trump is expected to sign a few executive orders on Wednesday. Reports said these executive orders will restrict immigration from Syria and six other Middle Eastern or African countries.
