I was aghast when I heard Donald Trump say, “I think Islam hates us.”
At the end of a recent GOP debate in Miami when he was pressed to elaborate, he reaffirmed it yet again.
The fact that Trump groups me with the vicious and horrific group ISIS is hurtful.
His remarks are pitiful, more so because he is a leading candidate in the presidential race. I expect my future president to be fair and just to all citizens of the country.

I’m scared that if he becomes president, millions of Muslims will be marginalized in their own country. America is great because it values inclusiveness and embraces pluralistic values.
