‘Trump Is A Modern Day Swastika’: MSNBC Guest Rips Trump For Ignoring Mosque Attack

On Monday, Radio host Dean Obeidallah spoke with MSNBC. The radio host ripped Donald Trump for not responding to an attack on a mosque in Minnesota on Sunday.

The attack took place at the Dar Al Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota.

“Does it surprise you and does it matter that the president hasn’t chimed in?” MSNBC host Ali Velshi asked Obeidallah, who is Muslim, during an interview on Monday.

“I don’t expect Donald Trump to stand up for the American Muslim community,” Obeidallah concede. “This is a man who campaigned in ways we never saw — demonizing our community, saying, ‘Islam hates us.’”

“He demonized our community where what we’re seeing today, the climate we live in, is thanks to a man named Donald J. Trump who is president of the United States,” he continued. “I don’t expect him to stand up for us. Our community feels very alone. And not only alone. We feel like we have a president who demonizes us to win votes, doesn’t care about us.”

Obeidallah went on to raise concern for Muslim Americans, saying that Trump’s presidency is a “time of fear.”

“Just a week ago, another Muslim cemetery in the Minneapolis suburbs was vandalized with swastikas, graffiti,” Obeidallah noted. “Since January, we’ve had five mosques burned down by arson.”

“We’ve had swastikas written on mosques. We’ve had the word Trump painted on mosques in New Jersey, Iowa and New York,” he added. “For some, the word ‘Trump’ is becoming a modern day swastika. I’m not saying Donald Trump wants that.”
