US: Biden vows Muslims' inclusion in administration
US Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden vowed Muslims would be included in every social and political aspect in his administration, as well as to repeal President Donald Trump’s socalled “Muslim ban” if elected.
“As President, I’ll work with you to rip the poison of hate from our society, to honor your contributions and seek your ideas,” Biden said in a video message to civil rights organization Muslim
“My administration will look like America, with Muslim Americans serving at every level,” he said.
The former vice president also promised to repeal Trump’s socalled “Muslim ban,” on his first day at the White House if he is elected.
President Trump had imposed a travel ban on several Muslim majority countries through a series of executive orders he signed from
January through March of 2017, which were referred to as “Muslim Ban.”
“Muslim-Americans are a diverse, vibrant part of the United States, making invaluable cultural and economic contributions to communities all across the nation. But they also face real challenges and threats in our society, including racially-motivated violence and Islamophobia,” Biden’s campaign page says.
