Eric Trump told a New York comedian that Muslims will not need to register under the Trump administration, the comic said.
Palestinian-American Mohammed Amer happened to be sitting next to Eric Trump on a flight to Scotland.
On Wednesday, he posted a selfie with Eric Trump from the plane.
“Good news guys Muslims will not have to check in and get IDs. That’s what I was told,” Amer wrote on the post. “I will be asking him a lot of questions on this trip to Glasgow, Scotland. Sometimes God just sends you the material.”
Amer, a Bernie Sanders supporter, told BuzzFeed News in a phone interview that he couldn’t believe what had transpired.
“I was just walking in and he was just sitting there with his Trump shirt on and I was like, ‘Is this real?’” he said. “I mean, I’m an Arab-Palestinian, everything is a conspiracy, right?”
“So, when I walked into the plane I was like, ‘What is this?’ This is obviously from Allah — Allah is just trying to hook me up right now. That’s what’s happening,” he continued.
Amer took the opportunity to introduce himself to Trump, who was sitting in business class, and to broach the topic of the controversial Muslim registry Trump’s father has proposed.
“And I said, ‘Just FYI, I’m not getting that ID s— done. You gonna really make my people get ID cards and all this? You know we’re not doing this s—,’” he said.
Amer said Trump replied with, “Ah, come on, man. You can’t believe everything you read. Do you really think we’re gonna do that?”
He still doesn’t like the Trumps. Trump has changed his position but Amer isn’t about to change his. Amer was harsh in his comments BuzzFeed News in a phone interview. he had vibes and thinks Eric is a “robot” who “seemed disconnected from the reality of race attacks and violence.”
Some might say Amer’s disconnected from the reality of attacks and violence by Muslims.
Donald Trump had briefly toyed with the idea of a registry and is still intent on temporarily banning immigration from some terror countries.
You can’t please everyone.
