Rumana Ahmed is a Muslim who has been working at the White House since 2011.
Under President Obama, she was promoted to work at the National Security Council, now Trump sacked her and she has been sacked from the White House.
“In 2011, I was hired to work at the White House and eventually the National Security Council. My job there was to promote and protect the best of what my country stands for i do not see the people by their religion i worked hard for my country “-said Rumana Ahmed.
Obama administration always made me feel welcome and included, i just can’t understand why Mr.Trump has so much against Muslim,when you are hard worker and you contribute much to your country and you love this country so what is the reason of not letting you made your best for your own country ?
U.S is built by immigrants, Trump’s own towers are made by immigrants, We’re the best country cause the best minds from all the world are here, no matter what religion they are, which color on skin they have etc.
I thought I should try to stay on the NSC staff during the Trump Administration i haven’t lost hope and i liked to work with any President cause my job is to serve the country , i liked to give the new president and his aides a more nuanced view of Islam, and of America’s Muslim citizens.And guess what i lasted 8 days.
The evening before I left, bidding farewell to some of my colleagues, many of whom have also since left, I notified Trump’s senior NSC communications adviser, Michael Anton, of my departure, since we shared an office.He asked why i was leaving and i answered him with silence.
But i told him that the administration was attacking the basic tenets of democracy. I told him that I hoped that they and those in Congress were prepared to take responsibility for all the consequences that would attend their decisions.
He looked and say nothing.
I honestly hope this “racism” against Muslims will shortly end, we all belong here and we are all equal in this country as are the afro-americans ,latino-americans etc. We are all AMERICANS
“I want to say am hardly disappointed but am big optimist and hope that things will be as they need to be very soon”
