Stepfeed, #MuslimsForBernie: Muslim-Americans explain why they're voting for Sanders

"Four years ago, the Jewish U.S. senator's message of inclusiveness resonated with Muslims and Arabs. #Yo2Bernie, #Muslims4Bernie, and #InshallahBernie were signals of hope among Muslim-Americans in the U.S. Though Sanders' campaign did not prove successful (in terms of a spot in the White House) back in 2016, his loyalty to the Muslim community has been clear as day for quite some time. As such, the Muslim, and Arab community as a whole, have been firm supporters of Sanders as well. That support has been obvious in the 2020 presidential race so far."
