MuslimsReportStuff Tweets Satirize Trump’s Attacks

Donald Trump’s debate performance was full of dog-whistle references against Jewish people.

But there was another group that Trump attacked completely outright: Muslims.

Asked about his famous call for a Muslim ban, the Republican presidential nominee said it has now morphed into “extreme vetting from certain areas of the world.”

Trump also called Clinton’s plan to allow thousands of Syrian refugees into the country, the “great Trojan horse of all time.”

Hillary Clinton responded by defending religious freedom. “It is important for us as a policy not to say, as Donald has said, ‘We’re going to ban people based on a religion.’ How do you do that? We are a country founded on religious freedom and liberty,” Clinton said.

The Twitterverse meanwhile found another way to fight back against Trump’s rhetoric.

Inspired by Trump asking Muslisms to “report the problems when they see them” to prevent terrorist attacks, the hashtag #MuslimsReportStuff quickly started trending.

For most people, there was one specific threat that they were concerned about: Donald Trump himself.
