Trump made liberals mad when he refused to carry on Obama’s tradition about celebrating Ramadan with a dinner in the White House.
Trump sent a clear message to the Muslim community: “we refuse to bow down to SHARIA LAW and Islam radicals”.
Just before leaving the White House, Obama was sending thousands of dollars to 13 Islamic organizations.
The Trump administration has officially ended this list. No more DHS funds to Islamic group.
Trump also removed Muslim government employees who were linked to the Obama administration.
The turnaround was made public on Friday when the Department of Homeland Security announced a revised list of the organizations which are getting DHS funds to help revent young Muslims from becoming jihadis.
The new list replaced an Obama list announced January 13, 2017, and it dropped a $800,000 grant for an Islamic seminary in Los Angeles, and a $393,000 grant for a linked organization, the Muslim Public Affairs Council Foundation.
The funding cut-off came one day before the final day of the 2017 Ramadan season. In prior years, Obama invited Muslim ambassadors and U.S.-based Muslim allies to share a fast-breaking “Iftar dinner” at the White House. At Obama’s final 2016 Iftar, the attendees chanted “Four More Years!”
