Donald Trump is losing friends left and right. After he threw 100,000 legal visa holders from his chosen seven primarily Muslim countries and their families into chaos, Royal Jordanian Airline pulled a good one. The airline offered the blocked people some wonderful news.
Royal Jordanian Airlines is trying to turn Trump’s inexcusable actions into something a bit happier. The airline is encouraging people to fly with them in a tweet, while giving Trump a kick in the rear at the same time. The tweet crossed out the first word in “Ban Voyage!” and turned it into “Bon Voyage!” according to CNN:
‘Fly to the US with RJ now that you’re allowed to.’

Not only that, the ad shows the airline has reduced its prices while the ban is on hold. On Saturday, Royal Jordanian said it would be flying visa and green-card people from the seven Trump-banned countries to the U.S. at a discount during the ban block.
The Jordanian airline released its last tweet after a judge temporarily blocked Trump’s travel ban. Airline spokesman Basel Kilani said it will give discounts to Chicago, Detroit, and New York up to 20 percent.
The airline has also been having fun at Trump’s expense. It makes a great marketing strategy. Last November, Royal Jordanian sent a sly tweet on the U.S. Election Day. The ad was joking, but little did it know, it was predicting a dire future mere months away. CNN reported it went viral:
‘Just in case he wins. … Travel to the US while you’re still allowed to!’

The United Nations’ migration agency has worked with Royal Jordanian as part of the Middle East’s continuing refugees crises. The airline has helped carry migrant workers, who were trapped in Syria, back to their country of origin.
Jordan is a stable nation in the center of the Mideast waring countries. It has served as a sanctuary for millions of people fleeing warfare. The country has linked with Lebanon and Turkey to give shelter to flood of Syrian people running for their lives. Over a million Iraqis have come to Amman and other Jordanian cities over the past decade.
