(Worthy News) - The closing prayer at Republicans’ convention session Tuesday, delivered by a Muslim, was marred by a Trump supporter repeatedly chanting “No Islam,” exposing a still raw nerve within the GOP over how big the party’s tent should be.
As Sajid Tarar, founder of American Muslims for Trump, prayed for peace and an end to terrorism, a man stood up in the upper part of the arena and tried to shout him down, complaining about the prominent presence of a Muslim at the convention.
“My obligation is to God. This is an abomination to God,” the man said as other delegates challenged him. He refused to give his name to reporters, but he had a badge signifying he was an alternate delegate and was wearing a blue “Make America Great Again” hat. [ Source ]
