Muslim-American Olympiad Detained By Customs Agents Before Trump Became President, Media Still Blames Trump!

Ibtihaj Muhammad, the female Muslim-American Olympic fencer was detained by customs agents for 2 hours according to an interview she did earlier this month. Although she was detained back in December while Obama was still the President, she made it sound like she was a victim of Trump’s travel ban and the media ran with it!

In her interview with PopSugar she stated:

Popsugar: Do you know anyone who was directly impacted by Trump’s travel ban?

Ibtihaj Muhammad: Well, I personally was held at Customs for two hours just a few weeks ago. I don’t know why. I can’t tell you why it happened to me, but I know that I’m Muslim. I have an Arabic name. And even though I represent Team USA and I have that Olympic hardware, it doesn’t change how you look and how people perceive you.

Unfortunately, I know that people talk about this having a lot to do with these seven countries in particular, but I think the net is cast a little bit wider than we know. And I’m included in that as a Muslim woman who wears a hijab.

Of course the fake news media went crazy blaming Donald Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ and bigotry as to why she was detained by customs agents. FYI, Ibtihaj Muhammad was actually born in New Jersey so I’m not exactly sure how Trump’s travel ban pertains to her anyway.

Time Magazine’s Motto ran a headline: “Olympic Athlete Ibtihaj Muhammad Was Detained Because of President Trump’s Travel Ban”

New York Daily News’ headline read: “U.S. Olympian Ibtihaj Muhammad Being Detained Illustrates Why Trump’s Muslim Ban Is Not Who We Are As Americans”

The Hill published: “A Muslim-American Olympic medalist says she was detained by Customs for nearly two hours without explanation after President Trump’s travel ban was instituted a few weeks ago.”

Ibtihaj Muhammad sent out a tweet confirming her tragic customs incident took place in December when Obama was still the President! So I guess all of these leftist websites just admitted Obama isn’t who we are?

Now of course I reached out to Ibtihaj Muhammad on Twitter and asked her if she denounces the Quran’s call to kill or subjugate me as a non-Muslim and below was her answer…but she’s supposed to be the ‘voice for all impacted by bigotry’…

TGP also documented her hateful, Anti-American statements and tweets which you can read about here.
