There is no “Muslim ban.” It’s a ban on Muslim and non-Muslim countries that cannot or will not provide adequate information about those who want to enter the U.S. Repealing this would endanger national security. Also, it was the Obama Administration that selected the list of Muslim countries in Trump’s executive order.
Nor is it true that Trump has some hatred for Muslims. There was even a pro-Trump Muslim event recently, but it was given little coverage in media and was Zoom-bombed as the event “descended into chaos.”
Targeting the Muslim vote is a Democrat team effort: Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar have called for a high Muslim voter turnout to “outvote” Trump’s “hate” and “bigotry.” Biden is fiercely seeking the Muslim vote at any cost, including his stunt during his debate with Trump when he declared “inshallah,” the Arabic for “God willing.” The Biden camp is prepared to go to any lengths, from Islamopandering to selling out American interests. And of course the center of their efforts is portraying Trump’s efforts to protect American national security as “hate.”
“Joe Biden says Muslims would serve ‘at every level’ in his administration,” by Ali Harb, Middle East Eye, October 15, 2020:
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden vowed Muslim Americans would be included in every social and political aspect in his administration, and reiterated his pledge to repeal President Donald Trump’s “Muslim ban” on his first day in office.
In a video message to Muslim Advocates, a civil rights organisation, Biden also promised on Wednesday to push lawmakers for legislation to fight the growing spike in hate crimes in the US.
“Today, trust is ebbing; hope seems elusive. Instead of healing, we’re being ripped apart,” Biden said. “And I refuse to let that happen. We have too bright a future to leave it shipwrecked on the shoals of anger and division.”…
“As president, I’ll work with you to rip the poison of hate from our society, honour your contributions and seek your ideas,” the former vice president said on Wednesday. “My administration will look like America, Muslim Americans serving at every level.”
Biden’s remarks to Muslim Advocates was the second time he addressed a Muslim group since clinching the Democratic nomination, having delivered a speech at an Emgage virtual conference in July.
The Democratic candidate also tackled broader issues in his remarks, promoting his plan to combat Covid-19 and end the “deadly inequities in health care, education and opportunity”, which he said had been amplified by the pandemic.
He said his administration would rebuild the criminal justice system to be “focused on redemption, not retribution.”…
While Muslims represent a small minority of the American electorate, their communities are concentrated in key swing states that Trump won by a small margin in 2016, including Michigan.
“We can’t let anyone think their voices don’t count because the American people decide this election and define our future, the American people – you,” Biden said on Wednesday. “There’s not a single thing we can’t do if we do it together. So let’s spread the faith; let’s get to work.”…
