The U.S. cannot allow EBOLA infected people back. People that go to far away places to help out are great-but must suffer the consequences!

Donald Trump wants Americans infected with ebola to be kept out of their own country.In a series of tweets posted over the weekend, Trump said doctors who treat ebola patients "are great," but shouldn't be allowed to seek treatment back home if they get sick.
Dr. Kent Brantly, the American doctor stricken with ebola in Africa, returned to the U.S. on Saturday, and is said to be improving as he receives treatment at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital. His assistant, missionary Nancy Writebol, also contracted the disease while working with patients suffering from ebola. She's expected to be flown to the U.S. later this week.
Both were in Liberia, working for Samaritan's Purse, an evangelical Christian relief organization.
Earlier, the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention appealed for calm in the wake of fears about Americans sickened by ebola coming to the states.
How quickly he forgets about American exceptionalism and instead attacks American doctors for helping combat the Ebola virus. Way to go!
