The White House is working to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.
The Trump administration is moving to label the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, according to a report from The New York Times.
Great move that’s long overdue! It’s a start but there’s many more that should have that designation too.

President Trump moved to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terror group following a visit from the president of Egypt earlier this month.
The designation would impose severe travel and economic sanctions on those who associate with the group, which has millions of members across the Middle East. Trump has asked his administration to figure out a way to make the designation happen, The New York Times reports. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the news, which the New York Times reports has sparked internal debate in the administration. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security advisor John Bolton support the move, while others at the Pentagon are opposed and are working to propose a more moderate action.
“The president has consulted with his national security team and leaders in the region who share his concern, and this designation is working its way through the internal process,” she told The New York Times. More
Enough is enough… This is fantastic news and has been a long time coming! If they defend the interests of the Muslim Brotherhood they cannot be defending the interests of the USA.
I recently met with @jkbadawy and @thefreedomi to talk about Hoda Abdelmonem, a political prisoner in Egypt. I hope that Trump brings up her case in his meeting with the regime that has imprisoned her. We must work to #FreeHoda. pic.twitter.com/3KMPNd4Kfb
