Muslim Americans are freaking out, watching the US election results roll in, at the thought of potentially having to leave their country.

During his campaign, Donald Trump outraged pretty much the whole world when he called for Muslims to be banned from the US.

Speaking at at a South Carolina rally, he declared: “Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”

“Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again,” Trump said.

That’s in stark contrast to our own Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who told the United Nations earlier this year that Trump’s politics was not the way to go.

“When leaders are faced with citizens’ anxiety, we have a choice to make. Do we exploit that anxiety or do we allay it?” he said. “We need to focus on what brings us together, not what divides us.”

Instead, Trudeau was proud to tell the UN about Canada’s efforts to welcome 30,000 Syrian refugees.

“Listen, Canada is a modest country. We know we can’t solve these problems alone…But we’re Canadian. And we’re here to help,” Trudeau concluded.
