Center for Security Policy, June 7, 2018:
Donald Trump ran for president with a promise that “the support networks for Radical Islam in this country will be stripped out and removed, one by one.” This pledge was part of a larger, strategic course-correction that strongly resonated with many millions of Americans.
Last night, Mr. Trump made an important, if symbolic, step towards implementing his campaign commitment. He hosted a White House iftar dinner with Muslims that, for the first time since 9/11, appears not to have been populated by representatives of the support networks for Radical Islam in this country.
Instead, groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations that was founded by Hamas, were reduced to protesting from across the street. Let’s hope this is the first step towards designating the Muslim Brotherhood as the terrorist organization it is – and ending its network’s subversive radicalization in our communities
