Muslim Advocates to President Trump: “If you’re not condemning this bigotry, you’re co-signing it” in press release sent to Zennie62Media blasting Trump’s racist tweets.

WASHINGTON, DC — Muslim Advocates, the national civil rights organization, released the following statement from Public Advocacy Director Scott Simpson in response to President Trump’s racist tweets attacking Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib:

“Trump burst onto the political scene peddling the very same bigoted birtherism conspiracy theory that he used this weekend to attack four women of color serving in Congress. Despite real-life consequences for Americans who suffer from hate crimes, hate speech and bigoted policies, Trump continues to govern as a white nationalist.

Previous anti-Muslim rants from the president have already caused Rep. Ilhan Omar and others to receive numerous death threats. Further, we know that white nationalists who have attacked mosques, synagogues, gurdwaras and churches have consumed and expressed the same kind of dehumanizing, alarmist rhetoric that the president expressed on Sunday.

If you’re not condemning this bigotry, you’re co-signing it. Donald Trump is not just a political actor making partisan attacks; he is openly embracing white nationalism as the animating force of his presidency and will continue to do so throughout the 2020 campaign. People of every identity and of both parties must condemn it.”

Muslim Advocates is a national civil rights organization working in the courts, in the halls of power and in communities to halt bigotry in its tracks. We ensure that American Muslims have a seat at the table with expert representation so that all Americans may live free from hate and discrimination.
