The whole Donald Trump episode has been a real interesting one off late. The fact that he won, even after so much of backlashes he got on his misogynistic and ugly comments about women, or for that matter, on anything in particular, was enough to make everyone gasp with confusion! However, Trump was quite clear about his win from the very first day and he had been constantly talking about a ‘silent majority’ which, according to him, would make him win. Although, pollsters weren’t that satisfied with his comments, finally got pleasantly (or unpleasantly) surprised enough to find out the winner at the end! The exit poll data proposed that the ‘white males’ were the ones to make Trump win. But there was a significant amount of women voters as well behind his success. And quite surprisingly, there has been one women in particular, who, not white, voted for Trump and came all out claiming about the same. And to everyone’s utmost disbelief, she is a Muslim!
A ‘Silent’ Trump Voter!
Asra Q. Nomani, a former journalist of the Wall Street Journal and a successful Women in the World contributor, confessed, “I am a Muslim, a woman and an immigrant. I voted for Trump.” She further added, “I, a 51 years old, a Muslim, an immigrant woman ‘of color’, – am one of those silent voters for Donald Trump. And I’m not a ‘bigot’, ‘racist’, ‘chauvinist’ or ‘white supremist’, as Trump voters are being called, nor part of some ‘whitelash’. So, what was her reason behind this? On further query, she revealed that she wasn’t really satisfied with what Obama did for the commoners in America. She said that she isn’t at all liking the way ordinary Americans are still trying to make their ends meet in the rural parts of the country. Also, being a single mother of two, she couldn’t really afford a health insurance under Obamacare. She felt that Trump’s oratory on the position of Muslims in the country are being “demonized and exaggerated” in order to form a distraction. She also said that she rejects what Trump said about the ban of Muslims in the country but she has full faith upon United States and she believes that the country would support her, keeping the ‘agenda-driven identity politics’ aside.
The fact that Nomani came out and open as a Trump voter in front of the world is surely commendable in spite of all the hatred she has got. When people are actually de-friending people on the social media and also losing quite a lot of relationships as Trump voters are come into light after his win, Nomani’s confession remains a bold move. Don’t you think?
