Muslim group to Trump: Drop 'anti-Islam conspiracy theorist' as adviser
by Mark Hensch
America's largest Muslim advocacy organization urged President-elect Donald Trump to cut ties with a national security adviser the group described as an "anti-Islam conspiracy theorist."
"Discredited conspiracy theorists like Frank Gaffney should not come within 100 miles of any administration that seeks to maintain credibility on the world stage or uphold longstanding American values of religious diversity and inclusion," Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said in a statement Wednesday.
"With these kinds of associations, President-elect Trump is dividing America at a time when we are most in need of unity."
