When asked by CNN about whether he believes Islam is at war with the West, Donald Trump replied “I think Islam hates us”. How does a prominent U.S. Muslim, former U.S. Navy Lt Commander and cardiologist respond and view the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump?
I spoke with Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, founder of American Islamic Forum for Democracy and author of “Battle for the Soul of Islam: An American Muslim Patriot’s Fight to Save his Faith.” He was also the past president of Arizona Medical Association.
In another point of view, a female U.S. Donald Trump supporter sent out an e-mail about why she stands for Donald Trump as POTUS. Part of the email reads: “I need someone like Trump. I need someone to come in and kick ass! If Trump is only half the man Ronald Reagan was, the US may be able to recover. I’m tired of the tide of illegal immigrants flooding our country, taking jobs, not speaking our language and sucking benefits out of the system. My husband was a systems analyst. He was laid off three years ago. He cannot find a job. We can’t wait for the current clown in office to be gone.”
Violence, as well as threats of violence, at Donald Trump rallies increases as MoveOn.org encourages disruption of Trump rallies. Disruptions included a 22-year-old man rushing the stage where Trump was speaking in Dayton, Ohio yesterday. He was stopped by U.S. Secret Service agents guarding Donald Trump.
Is Donald Trump what America needs, or what America should shun?
