Michigan Muslims decry Trump, Clinton's use of phrase 'radical Islam'
by Lauren Gibbons
In the aftermath of the Orlando mass shooting, presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have been in a war of words over how to address threats to national security.
And for many Muslims living in Michigan, the words the presumptive presidential nominees of both political parties chose to use when discussing potential threats — especially the use of "radical Islam" or similar phrases — have been disappointing.
"In this particular stage of our country in which the sociopolitical climate is volatile, we expect both candidates to be more presidential and be more responsible in their language," said Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, CAIR-MI.
