Responding to the incident, Trump appeared to endorse the forcible eviction—and the crowd’s behavior. “There is hatred against us that is unbelievable,” Trump told the crowd. “It’s their hatred, it’s not our hatred.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) immediately demanded an apology from Trump, who has hinged his presidential bid on racist, nativist, and Islamophobic rhetoric, including a call for a ban on non-American Muslims from entering the United States. Studies show that this and other hateful rhetoric is leading to real violence against those communities targeted.

“The image of a Muslim woman being abused and ejected from a political rally sends a chilling message to American Muslims and to all those who value our nation’s traditions of religious diversity and civic participation,” said CAIR national executive director Nihad Awad in a statement.

“Donald Trump should issue a public apology to the Muslim woman kicked out of his rally,” Awad continued, “and make a clear statement that American Muslims are welcome as fellow citizens and as participants in the nation’s political process.”
