MUSLIM WOMAN COMPLAINS: I don’t feel safe in USA wearing a headscarf with Trump as President (Video)


Alaa Basatneh is Muslim and has been wearing a headscarf for the past 12 years. But these days when she goes outside, she switches to a hat.

“It’s no longer safe to walk on the streets with a headscarf,” she told CNN’s Carol Costello on Wednesday.

Basatneh, a Miami-based writer who covers justice for the news and culture site Fusion, said much of this fear stems from Donald Trump. The President-elect said during his campaign that he wants to ban Muslims from traveling to the United States and suggested that profiling would be an effective way to prevent terrorism.

It’s no longer safe to walk on the streets with a headscarf now,” @AlaaBasatneh tells @CarolCNN

[Trump] really opened a large wound within the Muslim community,” she said. “And to me, personally, I think he needs to apologize for what he’s been saying. And … reassure the Muslim community that we will be safe.”


  1. What are you basing this on, have you become a victim in
    Any manner because of this in Miami where you have all kinds of races, maybe this is because of your racist thinking. Other people do wear headware

  2. Donald Trump has not caused the fears that society holds about the Muslim people. That has been caused my Muslim extremists and followers of Islam, who use the name of Allah Anbar to commit attrocities around the globe. You have no hesitation to speak out about the POTUS, but you have not said one word about the behaviors of those who create this fear, and THAT, IN A NUTSHELL, is what makes you part of the problem, and not the solution. The President is doing what needs to be done to protect the American people from the crime that is happening in other countries due to the massive influx of refugees. I personally appreciate that he has put the safety and welfare of American Citizens first.
