Biden leaves American Muslims wanting

September 12, 2022

When President Biden was elected in 2020, Muslim Americans hoped to see a change in representation in government.  

At the time, hate crimes against Muslims were on the rise, and anti-Islamic rhetoric was surging, which critics attribute, in part, to former President Trump.

The former president took a hardline stance on Muslims, signing an executive order in 2017 banning foreign nationals from seven predominantly Muslim countries and sending shockwaves throughout the Muslim American community.
