"Muslim Americans for Trump"

    Donald Trump’s bold conservative message seems to be powerful enough, that he is swinging support from voters that don’t normally hold Republican views. Its clear that Trump is in a league of his own because of the increasing growth of supporters and the ever expanding influence he has on the Republican Party.

    Trump event organizers from the Sikh and Muslim communities are saying that the false-view of Donald Trump regarding minority community was "twisted" and "taken out of context" by mainstream media. They are claiming instead that Trump will create jobs in America that will benefit the minorities.

    “He (Trump) is not at all against the Sikhs or the Muslim community. What he says is given spin. The mainstream media gives a spin. Because they are scared of him. He is not the status quo. He is not taking anybody’s money,” said Jasdip Singh, who helped organised the “Sikh Americans for Trump” in Maryland.

    A prominent member of the Sikh community, Singh is Chairman of the Maryland Governor’s Commission on South Asian Affairs and Chairman of the Board of Sikh Associations of Baltimore.

    “When he talks about Muslims, he does not talk about all Muslims or American Muslims. He spoke in the context of the refugee crisis that was happening in Syria. We (Sikhs) agree with him. Muslim (Americans) agree with him that we should not bring people into this country before we can vet them. And this was a temporary measures proposed by him,” Singh said.

    This is very encouraging to me.  Trump is actually 'uniting people'. 
    I totally agree with "Muslim Americans for Trump" 100%.
    They get it!

      He does say some wonderful things and most of it makes so much sense. I would feel much better about him though if he hadn't changed his mind on so many things; I mean like he use to be a Democrat and thought like one and now he doesn't? (Oh but I use to be one too!)  He use to believe like Hillary and that scares me. Also his temper scares me a little too. If it comes down to Hillary or Trump I would have no choice but to vote for him because voting for Hillary will be more of what we have and America just cannot take more of that. Hard to tell what one more year will do to perhaps never heal from. Trump is promising America back; I think that is what so many of us want.

        Changing parties shows that Trump supported and votes for individuals instead of party, good or bad.  Reagan was a Democrat but he saw the light and switched. 

        People who know Trump say he is kind, generous, gracious, and one of the nicest people they know.  He is under tremendous attack because the establishment and elite bankers are scared of  him.

        "He use to believe like Hillary" .... Hillary and Obama are Globalist. Carl Marx was the first globalist.  Believe me, Trump has never thought like them. Trump is a Patriot!

        Hillary vs Trump is what it will come down to, she's cheating while he is a Populist.

        1. a member or adherent of a political party seeking to represent the interests of ordinary people. 

        2. of or relating to a populist or populists.  "a populist leader"

        Trump says, "I love you " a lot!

        So much LOVE...Donald Trump New Hampshire Victory Speech

      I don’t know if we have been listening to the same Donald Trump. The one I have been listening to has called on a ban on all Muslims from entering the United States, accused Mexicans of being rapists, alleged that Africans were lazy and only good at eating and having sex and insulted women and the disabled. I don’t understand how this unites all the people.
      Just as I indicated in my earlier article (link below), like Robert Mugabe and Idi Amin Dada, Donald Trump is a skillful demagogue who uses gullible people’s fears and prejudices to get their support.

    I really enjoy reading everyone's responses. My best advice right now with the GOP is to say "not so fast". Ted Cruz has been gaining tremendous momentum in the last several weeks. There are still a lot of states to vote in the primaries and a lot of delegates to be gained. So, right now Donald Trump has a lot of hurdles to jump over before and if he can finally win the GOP ticket.

      Matt, those are wise words. and it reminds me to be open to the possibilities.  The race has months to go, and Cruz is doing pretty darn good.  Trump already told Ted he won't be his VP.  Ted was looking to secure a seat in the Supreme Court if Don is president.  The answer was "no dice". smile   

      Ted does support Don's temporary ban on Muslim refugees in IS controlled reigns, because of the threat of radicals infiltrating through an open door. I think he purposes a three year ban.  Proper vetting is needed and once that is in place... American Muslims have family, law abiding citizens who want to join them here.  But, they understand the threat of terrorists, better then I do. 

      I actually think Ted could beat Hillary, but I hope it doesn't come to that.

    Yes, we will see what the outcome today is of the states primaries that vote. Plus, what the delegate counts will be for Trump and Cruz after the polls close. We can all agree it is now a two man race. Rubio needs to bow out.

    I see that Trump was a distant second in Idaho; a far right evangelical state where the large majority demands that their god have control over government.  Is this significant; will Trump continue losses as he goes further into the deep south where Christianity rules supreme?  We saw it in Texas, we see it in Idaho, will it grow? 

    And when Trump ends up with the nomination, and the voting is between Clinton and Trump, where will those votes go then?  Neither candidate has formally endorsed their god as the controlling master of their political actions - where will the far right go without a candidate clearly stating the God will determine their Presidential responses?

      Those are interesting questions, wilderness.  One thing I would like to point is that there is a huge difference between religion and Christianity.  I'll let you do your own research on the differences.  I frown on pseudo-Christian religions, and I believe God does too.    Matthew 7:21-23 is very clear on that.  https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?s … ersion=KJV

        I'm sorry, but claiming a religion isn't a religion because you don't agree with it's tenets doesn't make the statement true.  Not even quoting your scripture (and implying it means any believer but you) does that.

        The term "religion" encompasses (of the Christian variety) Catholics, Adventists, Mormons, Witnesses and a hundred more.  It also includes Muslims, Buddhists, Pagans and a thousand more non-Christian belief systems.  That you find them false, while the believer does not, does not indicate that they are not religions or even not Christians.

          "I'm sorry, but claiming a religion isn't a religion because you don't agree with it's tenets doesn't make the statement true."

          I didn't claim that, ...  Religion is religion.  Its a fact!

            Then I misunderstood your comment that "One thing I would like to point is that there is a huge difference between religion and Christianity.".  I apologize.

    I'm not sure how much Muslim Americans can support a man that claims that Islam hates us.

    Do a real search "why muslim americans support trump".

    What my Muslim friends tell me is exactly why Muslim Americans support Trump. And, the numbers are growing as people wake up to what is going on.   Its a phenomena! 

    Not all Muslims hate Americans...bless their hearts!   smile
    Not all Muslims are radicalized Islamic terrorists who hate Americans.
    Trump has Muslim friends and says ... 'they are great people!'
    I love my friends, or they wouldn't be considered friends.

      Here is a video of the Carson / Trump conference where Dr. Carson endorsed Donald Trump for president.  I feel a whole lot more American after watching it LIVE.  Trump said he would let Dr. Carson be in charge of Education (common core is out / local and state run is in), and in charge of Health because he knows the issues better then anyone. 

      Its not about Republican or Democrat, its about the people, its about America! 

      Republicans are getting behind Trump, and so are Democrats and Independents...because people see the problems the dirty politicians in government and power hungry elites have created...and its time we have politicians in Washington DC who listen to the people and work for the people of the United States... to make it great once again.

    I don't see why this would surprise anyone.  There are gays for Trump, transsexuals for Trump, black people for Trump, even illegal immigrants for Trump (even though they can't vote legally, lol) .  Humans are complex and a single aspect of their being does not completely define their political preferences.

      What is does say is that we are beginning to develop a voice and it is vocalizing it's distrust for our government and the way things are run. Both Trump and Sanders have struck a chord in the collective to do something about it. The only problem is that we can't get out of our own way with the partisan bickering that clouds the argument. The partisanship is a figment of the politicians spell over all of us. The real people in charge who have bought our country and freedoms are most worried about this latest phenomena. Maybe we will find a way before it is too late.

    Mr. Trump stated, “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again.”

    Its pretty hard to disagree with that. Unless, people are feasting on liberal BS news media and getting the twisted facts and lies.  to try and stop Trump for winning the election.  If that happens, the US is going to become a place to live by not allowing more radical Islamic terrorists in the country who chant "death to America".   

    Maybe you could get off the liberal lies media sites and discover for your self what's true.  I'm not here to convince you...Thanks, and good night.
