Despite Trump's campaign promises and hopeful rhetoric about the problem of Islam (e.g., when he told CNN that “Islam hates us!” which, while not an ideal way to phrase it, communicates more desperately needed truth than thousands of pronouncements & ejaculations of other Western politicians over the years), it seems that on this most exigent issue he has been slowly, but steadily sinking in the quicksand of the D.C. Swamp (whose ultimate source is the River that runs through the entire Mainstream West -- De Nile).
Former military officer (see his pic looking like a no-nonsense right winger, proudly sporting fruit salad on his chest), who as Trump's National Security advisor, has said such preposterous things as that Islamic terrorists are “un-Islamic” and that mujahideen are “not religious people”.
John F. Kelly
Retired General of the Marine Corps, appointed by Trump to be head of Homeland Security, who recently said that mujahideen have “corrupted the whole concept of Islam as a religion”.

Another retired Marine Corps General, and appointed by Trump to be Secretary of Defense, Mattis has said that al Qaeda terrorists “defame Islam”. Diana West aptly nicknames him James “World Order” Mattis, and in her discussion also quotes Andrew Bostom analyzing the dismaying ignorance of Mattis on Islam.
It looks like one step forward for Trumpkind, and -- for America and the West -- two giant leaps back to the see-no-Islam policy of the sixteen long post-911 OBushma years...
Note that all three are not Leftists; further evidence that the Problem of the Problem is not merely a problem of Leftists.
