There have been a lot of powerful hashtags throughout these past years and some of them speak louder than others such as #LoveIsLove and #YesAllWomen. However, this past week, a major trending hashtag that has brought many people together is #MuslimBan. Donald Trump placed a 90-day ban on visitors from seven countries in the Middle East. Trump claims that this is not a “ban against Muslims”, but a ban to not accept those who are Muslim coming from those seven countries. He continued to go on to explain that this ban is to help clean up American before we continue to allow more refugees to come. Seeing the amount of people protesting about the #MuslimBan throughout almost every international airpot in America, this shows how united we are as a country and how it is wrong to push people away and keep people out of this country due to the fact that they have a different religion. People of all different races, religions, backgrounds and everything else that makes us human came out to make sure their voices were heard around the world. #MuslimBan #NotMyPresident.
