Muslim Marine Tweet To Donald Trump Goes Viral - Nov 21, 2015

International Business Times - Nov 21, 2015


"When Sergeant Tayyib Rashid heard Donald Trump’s call for all American Muslims to carry special identification, he simply couldn’t stay silent. A Muslim himself, the 38-year-old former Marine from Chicago says Trump’s comments hit a nerve.

I got borderline angry that he would make such a comment and try to drive a wedge between Muslims serving in the U.S. armed forces and people who aren’t Muslim. I felt the need to call him out — particularly because Trump himself has never served,” Rashid told International Business Times, adding that he has carried two special ID cards — one that identified him as a Marine, and later, one that identifies him as a veteran.
