Some Muslim voters feel alienated by political rhetoric
by Elodie Reed
This isn't the first election Faizah Mask has felt nervous about, but for her, the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency is downright scary.
"The way he's just singled out (groups)," said the Pittsfield resident. She spoke from personal experience, as both a woman and a Muslim – two groups at the center of this year's volatile campaign.
Among his many comments, Trump has proposed a ban on all Muslims entering the United States and also suggested surveillance on mosques in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks.
Trump has accused Hillary Clinton and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of "playing the woman card," and made degrading remarks toward Fox News host Megyn Kelly, personality Rosie O'Donnell, and others.
