Muslim woman whines: I don’t feel safe in US wearing a headscarf with Trump as President
(CNN)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.
