It seems that as each new day passes we hear of more and more Muslim leaders, groups, and nations who fully support (and agree with) Donald Trump’s recent order to pause migration from 7 Muslim majority nations.
- Liberal Feminist Asra Nomani and Iraqi War Hero Johnny Walker both gave President Trump’s policy their wholehearted support.
- The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia have both voiced their understanding, and support for President Trump’s policy.
- Zudhi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, argued that Trump’s policy doesn’t go far enough. “It’s not a Muslim ban. I mean, it’s absurd. They’re pausing from seven countries that Obama had already listed as hot spots. I would have added — if you’re going to start, I would have added Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Pakistan, at least, since those are probably the primary cauldrons of radical Islamism. But, you know, having said that, the bottom line is that it’s important to realize it’s a pause. It’s not a ban.”
- The majority of Americans have agreed with a similar policy for months now, and may have been one of the reasons that President Trump won the election.
