Yes! He Did It! Trump Officially Declared Them A Terrorist Organization

It’s been a long time coming, but President Trump has declared that the Muslim Brotherhood be labeled as a terrorist organization…because that’s exactly what it is.

The Muslim Brotherhood should have been labeled as a terrorist organization many years ago, back when Obama was in office. If I knew that the Muslim Brotherhood was a terrorist organization, and everyone else knew, then there is no way that he didn’t know also. Instead, Obama was very friendly with them.

My hope and prayer is that President Trump doesn’t with the Muslim Brotherhood. We have groups such as CAIR – a group that Ilhan Omar is very fond of – and ANTIFA, that both need to be labeled as terrorist organizations.

According to The Guardian,

The White House has confirmed it is considering the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, after Donald Trump was personally lobbied by Egypt’s president, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.

The official designation of the Islamist movement as terrorist would have far-reaching effects, sanctioning companies and individuals who had any interactions with the group.

Such a move has been considered before, most recently by the Trump administration soon after taking office, but had been rejected as being impractical for such a diffuse and multifaceted organization, and potentially illegal under US law.

As a matter of fact, Ilhan Omar actually called for the release of a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood at the beginning of April.

The Daily Caller also noted,

The designation would impose severe travel and economic sanctions on those who associate with the group, which has millions of members across the Middle East. Trump has asked his administration to figure out a way to make the designation happen, The New York Times reports. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the news, which the New York Times reports has sparked internal debate in the administration. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security advisor John Bolton support the move, while others at the Pentagon are opposed and are working to propose a more moderate action.

“The president has consulted with his national security team and leaders in the region who share his concern, and this designation is working its way through the internal process,” she told The New York Times.
