Michigan Muslims face reality of Trump victory: 'I pray for our community'
For the city of Dearborn, Michigan, where one-third of the city's 96,000 residents are of Arab descent, the presidency of Donald Trump is almost certain to be volatile and unpredictable.
Just after 2.40am on Wednesday, when the election was called for the Republican nominee, Muzammil Ahmed, the chairman of the Michigan Muslim Community Council who attended an election watch party in Dearborn Tuesday night, tried to reach for a silver lining.
"Our country has made a choice of a very flawed and unpredictable candidate," Ahmed told the Guardian. "Although I'm deeply worried about our future, our community is not giving up the fight."
