(Washington, D.C., 11/9/2016)- The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the largest coalition of national, regional, and local Muslim organizations, called on President-Elect Trump today to uphold the foundational values of the Constitution by protecting civil and religious freedoms of all Americans.
In a statement today, USCMO Secretary General Oussama Jammal said, “Though the outcome of the elections was not what most expected, it is still the choice of the American people and the result of the democratic process. It is our sincere hope that negative campaign rhetoric is left behind in the upcoming phase, and that President-Elect Trump advocates for the rights of the American people regardless of gender, race or religious affiliation. We look forward to working with the new administration in order to help our great nation to come together and heal, and to move past the divisive sentiment that defined the electoral campaigns.”
USCMO encourages Americans across the nation to come together at this time to work towards closing the divide and building a better, stronger, more productive country.
