Trump Amplifies Image Depicting Nancy Pelosi And Chuck Schumer As Muslims
President Donald Trump retweeted an image of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer dressed in Muslim attire this week, in a clear attempt to inflame and misinform the American public while taking a jab at Muslims.
RawStory reported that “Twitter account @D0wn_Under posted a photoshopped picture of Pelosi and Schumer in Islamic clothing and with an Iranian flag in the background,” alongside the comment, “The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue.”
Trump subsequently picked up the tweet and amplified it to his millions of followers.
The move fits well with Trump’s MO to this point, given his history promoting the “birther” conspiracy surrounding former President Barack Obama, his insinuation that Obama was Muslim, and his declaration that his predecessor was the “founder of ISIS.”
