Donald Trump as President will help international students

How does Donald Trump being the president affect international students who wish to study in the US?

 

In 2015, Donald Trump tweeted, “When foreigners attend our great colleges & want to stay in the U.S., they should not be thrown out of our country,” and “I want talented people to come into this country—to work hard and to become citizens. Silicon Valley needs engineers, etc.,”, clearly showing his support for talented international students to study in the US.

 

Although Donald Trump is in favour of scrapping the J-1 visa, most international students enter the US on an F-1 visa. Trump has made it clear that he supports foreigners who want to stay back in the US after studying at colleges. Trump wants talented foreigners to become part of the United States.

 

It is almost certain that the visa policies that govern F-1 and OPT (Optional Practical Training that allows international students to stay in the US after graduation) are going to be untouched or made even easier.

 

The key for international students is to work hard, get admission to good colleges in the US, thereby allowing them to find coveted jobs and staying back in the US, if that’s what they want.
