On website, thousands of Americans pledge to side with Muslims amid talk of registry
by Sebastien Malo
Thousands of Americans have pledged online to stand in solidarity with Muslims in the United States amid suggestions from President-elect Donald Trump's camp that he is mulling a national registry for immigrants from Muslim countries.
On Friday, more than 13,000 people had signed a pledge on website Register US, promising to register as Muslims in the event of a national Muslim database being rolled out, so as "to stand together with Muslims across the country."
The online movement reflects a divided nation in the aftermath of Trump's presidential election win, that followed a campaign marked by hardline rhetoric on immigration.
