DEARBORN (WWJ) – An anti-hate and anti-terrorism rally in Dearborn this weekend brought out a large crowd of supporters. At the event, Mayor John O’Reilly expressed his problems with Republican Presidential front-runner, Donald Trump.
“I think it’s a good start,” said O’Reilly. “We’ve got a lot of work to do because like I said, we know them, people are not even following the messages from their own faiths – because their own faiths. I guarantee you — I don’t think he’s in sync with any religion I’m familiar with except maybe one of his own creation.”READ MORE: Ribs RnB Music Festival Kicks Off This Weekend In Downtown Detroit
Trump recently made headlines after suggesting a temporary ban on Muslims.
“Donald Trump represents fear mongering, quite literally,” said O’Reilly. “We’ve seen in the history of human kind – where those who try to promote themselves by creating fear and division have created havoc – have created some of the worst situations we’ve ever seen and I’m hoping we can avoid that happening in this environment.”READ MORE: Judge Says Michigan Gov.
