#NeverWho: What’s A Muslim Republican to Do?
The media picked up a story this week when reporters found a few American Muslims who were willing to speak about their their support for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump. It is indeed somewhat difficult to understand why anyone (especially American Muslims) would support all of Donald Trump’s policies; there is broad condemnation in the Party about Trump’s Muslim ban, his Middle East policies and lack thereof, and his penchant for fear-mongering tweets, to name just a few. But we’re inclined to draw more questions than problematic answers from how the chips are falling when die-hard, thoughtful Republicans are faced with the choice between #NeverTrump or #NeverHillary. Now that the nomination is his, will we see support for the Party and continued condemnation of the candidate’s policies? Here’s hoping.
