Trump pushes 'merit based' US visa system

He blamed the Democrats for the current US visa program.
"The terrorist came into our country through what is called the 'Diversity Visa Lottery Program,' a Chuck Schumer beauty. I want merit based," Trump wrote in a post on Twitter, referring to the Senate Democratic leader.Powerful winds raise California fire risk
