By BI: Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) says: “‘Muslims for Trump’ are like chickens for Colonel Sanders.”
Democrat Muslim congressmen Keith Ellison and Andre Carson spoke about what they consider anti-Muslim rhetoric and growing Islamophobia in Washington on Tuesday. Ellison made his point using a reference to Kentucky Fried Chicken.
“Muslims who support Trump is, like, you know, chickens for Colonel Sanders, you know what I mean? You think that you’re gonna be the chicken that doesn’t get fried up? Well, I think you better guess again.”
Trump has proposed a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the U.S., but he later said it was really just a suggestion. A fervent minority of Muslims are backing the presumptive GOP nominee, including the group American Muslims For Trump.
Muslims for Trump founder Sajid Tarar appeared on CNN with Don Lemon to explain how the likely Republican nominee is the best choice for the American Muslim community.
