Muslim U.S. Marine posts his military ID on Twitter and asks Trump: ‘Where’s yours?’

A Muslim veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps posted his military ID on Twitter with the words, “I’m an American Muslim and I already carry a special ID badge. Where’s yours?” in response to GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s refusal to rule out placing U.S. Muslims in a database.

A Muslim veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps posted his military ID on Twitter with the words, “I’m an American Muslim and I already carry a special ID badge. Where’s yours?” in response to GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s refusal to rule out placing U.S. Muslims in a database.

Sergeant Tayyib Rashid posted the tweet soon after Trump stated he would require Muslims in the U.S. to be tracked by the federal government.

Rashid’s comments were in reference to Trump’s lack of military service and that he deferred his draft call-up four times during the Vietnam War due to being in college, and later for being declared medically unfit.

From RawStory:

The former reality television star and beauty pageant runner joined the ranks of mostly-conservative politicians who reacted to last week’s deadly terrorist attacks in Paris by acting out against the Muslim population at large. The Republican-led House this week passed a bill intensifying screenings of Syrian refugees — which President Obama has threatened to veto.

Trump’s vow to identify and track American Muslims drew comparisons to Nazis forcing Jewish citizens to wear badges on their clothing identifying them. A Rhode Island Republican took things a step further this week when she said Syrian refugees should be rounded up and placed in camps — a sentiment echoed by other GOP colleagues.

    Donald Trump burned his ID when he refused to serve in the Arned Forces to serve and protect his country of the American citizens and his said so called belief. Coming now front and center he wants the American people to support him in Leadership although he turned his back on us by refusing his commitment with several draft call up, the later being mentally unstable as well as his current supporters that support him at the cost of our country with vast destruction of his hitler regime.
