Obama’s Muslim Heritage is Irrelevant; His Sympathies are not


A man at a town hall meeting in Rochester, New Hampshire, asked Trump: “We have a problem in this country. It’s called Muslims. You know our current president is one. You know he’s not even an American.”


Trump was severely criticized for not denying that Obama is a Muslim.  Whether he is or is not a Muslim is irrelevant.


He is clearly a Muslim sympathizer and has done everything in his power to reduce the distance between Americans and Muslims and enhance the distance between us and Israel.  Only he has failed with regard to Muslims in that his bowing and scraping to them has only made them hate us more.


His lineage is also Muslim.  His Kenyan father was a Muslim and his stepfather, Lolo Soetero, was a Muslim who took him to Indonesia and put him in Muslim schools.


If his evidence of Christianity is his having attended Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ then he is worse than a Muslim.  He kneeled before Reverend Wright when he said “God Damn America” after 9-11, obviously siding with the Muslims and supporting Wright.
