Darakshan Raja, co-founder of the Muslim American Women's Policy Forum and formerly a researcher at the Urban Institute, said at a rally on inauguration day that President Trump "made a lot of Islamophobic comments in his inauguration. He said he wants the extermination of radical Islam. What that basically means is he wants the extermination of Muslims globally."
Raja was reacting to President Trump's inaugural address in which he said that he will "unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth."
Speaking at an Occupy Inauguration anti-Trump rally at McPherson Square near the White House, Raja asked the crowd, "Are you going to show up when those registries happen? Are you going to continue to show up and carry the fact that under Obama every single year over 20,000 bombs have been dropped in Muslim majority countries with the majority of victims being Muslim women?"
