Reacting to the recent statement from the Trump Administration over ban from federal court on the new travel ban, a US investigative journalist, Sander Hicks said US president had shown his racist and anti-Islam nature during the 2016 presidential race.
While speaking in an interview with Press TV, Hicks said Thursday, “Trump was Islamophobic and his targeting of Muslims is now a part of this legal complaint.”
He said several judges and pro-migrant activists are going to file a lawsuit against the US president’s travel ban.
“Everything that happened in the past year with the campaign and all the clear Islamophobia is now in a legal document,” he added.
Referring to the background of the Trump family in promoting racism, he said, “Fred Trump, Donald Trump’s father, was arrested in 1927 at a Ku Klux Klan riot.”
“The Department of Justice in 1973 prosecuted Donald Trump and Fred Trump for racist discriminatory practices; so, Trump’s scapegoating of Islam is the oldest trick in the book,” Hicks noted.
He went on to say that the courts are stopping Trump from his Islamophobic, racist and discriminatory ban on any immigrants or any refugees from the top six countries.
