Nearly 90 percent of Muslims responding to an Adelphia University survey say that Islamophobia during the campaign has caused a negative impact on them and their families.
Mental health researchers—many of them Muslim—warn that an increasing number of America’s 3.3 million Muslims are suffering trauma because of Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric.
This campaign season has brought an unprecedented level of anti-Muslim rhetoric into presidential politics, including Trump’s call for a ban on all Muslims traveling to the United States. Most recently, Trump questioned whether Islam, and her husband Khzir Khan, forbade Ghazala Khan from speaking at the Democratic National Convention about her son, Army Capt. Humayun Khan, who died serving in the Iraq War.
