Muslim immigrant who voted FOR Trump claims the left is 'too afraid to talk about Islam'

.... Lashing out against the Democratic Party, Asra Nomani said she was sick of people being branded bigots and racists by the left for expressing genuine concerns.

Ms Nomani, a life-long liberal and Muslim woman, said she voted for Donald Trump because the US needed a policy change and someone who was not afraid to take on Islamic State.

Speaking to Fox, the 51-year-old mother said: “I have policy problems with the Obama administration.

“As a Muslim, I believe that the left has sadly lost our fight against the Islamic State by refusing to talk about the Islam in Islamic State.”

In the article, she wrote: “This is my confession — and explanation: I — a 51-year-old, a Muslim, an immigrant woman ‘of color’ — am one of those silent voters for Donald Trump. And I’m not a ‘bigot’, ‘racist’, ‘chauvinist’ or ‘white supremacist’, as Trump voters are being called, nor part of some ‘whitelash’.” [Daily Express] Read more
