In the Video, the Obama’s vice president also promised to repeal the Trump’s popular ‘’Muslim ban’’ even on the first days of his rule at the White House if elected. In Trump’s rule, there were many introduced travel bans on several Muslim majority countries. This was done through a series of executive orders that he signed from January to March in 2017. This series of restrictions was known as the ‘’Muslim Ban’’.

Biden’s campaign page dedicated to Muslims has promised to order the US department of Justice to focus additional resources to combat-religious based hate crimes. In his interview, he confirmed that Muslim Americans are diverse and a vibrant part of the US. According to Biden, this makes invaluable cultural and economic contributions to the communities that are across the nation. However, he confirmed that the country has received real challenges and threats which included the racially-motivated violence and Islamophobia.
