Minnesota boy, bullied for being Muslim, takes on Trump
by Brandt Williams
A boy who has said he wants to be the first Muslim president is taking on Donald Trump, ahead of Republican presidential nominee's appearance in Minneapolis scheduled for Friday.
Yusuf Dayur, 12, said Trump says things that fuel ill-will toward his fellow Muslims. Trump's campaign is instilling fear in people, Dayur said, "who do not really know what Islam stands for and do not really know what the Muslim community believes."
At a speech in Maine earlier this month, Trump said the U.S. does not do a good job of vetting refugees, which he says raises safety issues in Minnesota.
