Muslims for Trump Have Their Say at Republican Convention
by Katherine Gypson
The unlikeliest supporters of a once-unlikely candidate had their moment in the spotlight Tuesday night, as Sajid Tarar, the founder and leader of a group calling itself Muslims for Trump led a blessing at the Republican National Convention.
"Let us pray again to get our country back," Tarar told convention delegates hours after Donald Trump officially secured the Republican presidential nomination.
Some delegates held their hands up in prayer as Tarar invoked the Prophet Muhammad to ask God to bless Donald Trump and bring the United States a strong leader. Tarar's group says Donald Trump is revealing harsh truths about immigration and terrorism, speaking to the Muslim community in a way no one else can.
