COM­MENTS SPARKED BACK­LASH IN THE UAE

7 Days in Dubai - - SPECIAL REPORT -

When Don­ald Trump in De­cem­ber called for a “total and com­plete shut­down of Mus­lims” en­ter­ing the United States, he sparked out­rage world­wide, in­clud­ing in the UAE. Lieu­tenant Gen­eral Dahi Khal­fan bin Tamim, head of Gen­eral Security for Dubai, called Trump’s pro­posal “against hu­man rights” and laughed at the no­tion of him be­com­ing the next US pres­i­dent. “He will not be pres­i­dent of the US,” Khal­fan told 7DAYS. “He will not be pres­i­dent at all.” Khal­fan also mocked Trump’s idea of ban­ning Mus­lims, say­ing: “How will he do it? It is not easy.”
