WASHINGTON -- A White House national security staffer resigned after eight days in the Trump administration. The Maryland woman is a Muslim-American whose family emigrated from Bangladesh.
She was a holdover from the Obama White House who had hoped to stay.
I was surprised to read that the Trump administration chose to keep an Obama "security adviser staffer" on the job close to the President at all. Since she quit within 8-days we will never know if she was slated to be replaced.
Also, there would be a problem with keeping a security staffer who identifies as a "Muslim-American", no direct statement that she was a citizen, and was strongly opposed to the new administration's policies on immigration.
Anyone in a national security staff position who identifies themselves as a religion hyphenated American has alliance issues, especially when they proudly and openly identifies with an incompatible religious group that adheres to a doctrine to kill most Americans. Why didn't she identify as a Bangladesh-American?
Ahmed said one of the last straws for her was the president’s executive order banning travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Less than two weeks into the Trump presidency, she quit.
“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 a Muslim,” Ahmed said.
Pehaps she did not the stomach to be an Obama spy and source of one of the leaks to the fake new media.
