CAIR to Trump: Avoid ‘Pejorative Terminology’ and ‘Anti-Muslim Stereotypes’ in Your Saudi Speech

CAIR, which describes itself as “the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization,” expressed concern at reports that White House adviser Stephen Miller is helping to write the Riyadh speech. Miller is one of several White House officials whom Awad has in the past labeled “Islamophobes” and “white supremacists.” Others include chief strategist Steve Bannon and counterterrorism advisor Sebastian Gorka. “The president’s upcoming speech offers an opportunity to clarify whether or not he believes Islam should be respected as a major world faith,” said CAIR’s national executive director Nihad Awad on Wednesday.
