Muslim national security staffer quits only eight days after working with Trump, says it was an insult to work under him
In an editorial piece, Rumuna wrote that the President’s ban on travellers from seven Muslim countries was what prompted her to make the decision, having come to the realization that she could no longer work for an administration that saw her and her people as a threat.
“I told him I had to leave because it was an insult walking into this country’s most historic building every day under an administration that is working against and vilifying everything I stand for as an American and as a Muslim,’ she wrote.
”I told him that the administration was attacking the basic tenets of democracy. I told him that I hoped that they and those in Congress were prepared to take responsibility for all the consequences that would attend their decisions.”
“Walking into that building was becoming more and more difficult every single day because everything that administration was doing stood against what I stood for as both an American and as a Muslim”.
