DWIGHT YORKE was denied entry into United States on Friday due to the travel ban imposed by US President Donald Trump.
Yorke, who is the former Soca Warriors captain and Manchester United striker, was denied transit access to Miami because he has an Iranian stamp on his passport, according to a tweet by media anchor Richard Keys.
The tweet from <@richardajkeys> read: “Well done @realDonaldTrump. Man U ambassador Dwight Yorke denied transit access to Miami cause he has an Iranian stamp on passport. #crazy”.
Iran was one of seven countries which Trump has banned citizens from travelling to the US last month.
The ban has since been reversed.
An online article from the UK Mirror stated that Richard Keys is an anchor on beIN Sports.
Yorke was headed to Miami after on commentating on the beIN Sports channel on Thursday night's football match where Manchester United's won 3-0 over St Etienne in the Europa League.
