DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s another tear-jerker Super Bowl ad from the “King of Beers,” but with a twist.

President Donald Trump over the weekend signed an executive order banning travel to the U.S. from seven predominantly Muslim countries, while also putting a hold on admittance of refugees from any foreign nation for 120 days. — the latter to allow more time to review the vetting process.
