Trump wants to focus counterterrorism exclusively on Muslims – Is this a thank-you note to white supremacists?
The Trump administration wants to revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism- five people briefed on the matter told Reuters.
The program ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ or CVE – would be changed to ‘Countering Islamic Extremism’ or ‘Countering Radical Islamic Extremism’ the sources said and would no longer target groups such as white supremacists who have also carried out bombings and shootings in the United States.
Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller are two of Donald Trump’s closest advisers.
They both admire and are affiliated with white nationalists and white supremacists.
