Trump’s security adviser: A real threat to Muslims and Islam

 

US president-elect Donald Trump famously said in a CNN interview last March that “Islam hates us.” In this light, his pick for national secuirty adviser is pitch perfect. etired lieutenant general Michael Flynn served as Trump’s national security adviser during the campaign and agreed Friday to continue on. Flynn, a registered Democrat, served as head of the US Defense Intelligence Agency before he was ousted in 2014. Since then, he’s been a brash critic of President Barack Obama and the national security establishment’s approach to defeating terrorism—and he’s made no secret of his disdain for Islam.  If a man who sincerely believes all Muslims are to be feared is heading US national security, there are going to be tough times ahead for Muslims in the US – and those planning to move or visit the country. Then, there is Trump’s pick for attorney general, Republican Senator Jeff Sessions, who is known to be an anti-immigration crusader hated by civil rights activists. Sessions is known to have called civil rights organisations un-American and white lawyers representing black people a ‘disgrace’ to their race. Then there is Congressman Mike Pompeo for CIA director. Pompeo has defended the use of torture in interrogations. Once you add these three to the appointment of white nationalist sympathiser, Stephen Bannon, as top White House strategist, any doubts about the direction being taken by the Trump presidency seem to slowly start fading. By appointing stalwarts of the far right to top national security and law enforcement positions, Trump has signalled his clear intention to aggressively pursue the promises he made during his campaign. The appointment of Trump’s children and his son-in-law in the transition team after the     acrimonious and  sudden removal of Chris Christie as head of the transition team has opened up serious questions about how much influence his entire family will have on American policy. Analysts who thought Trump might move to the centre have been proven wrong. Speculations that Mitt Romney might be considered for secretary of state give some relief to people, but the addition of some more established – albeit right wing – politicians would only give more credibility to a president who seems to be doing all he can to prove as divisive for the US and the world as he was predicted to be. If Trump’s appointments are confirmed, it is not only immigrants that need to be worried; civil rights activists and the Black Lives Matter movement will need to brace themselves for politics of hate. Then there is the promise to push through trillions of dollars in state infrastructural investments in another New Deal.    Trump’s early days confirm that the US has been handed to a far-right populist. Instead of healing the wounds inflicted by the election campaign and decades of political and economic mismanagement, the fissures in American society are all set to get deeper. The only respite there seems to have been the anti-Trump protests when – till now – have been consistent. How long they can be sustained is a whole different question, though.
