George Clooney Says Wife Amal Clooney Has Dealt With Sexual Harassment In The Workplace
Amal Clooney speaks out against ‘sexist’ Donald Trump
In a no-holds-barred interview, Amal spoke of how 'perplexed' she is by Trump's popularity
Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney has used her first interview with theBBCto call out GOP frontrunner Donald Trump for the sexist and racist comments that he has made during his campaign.
During the interview, Amal, whose parents are Muslim, questions why he isn’t being challenged enough for his controversial views, which include banning Muslims from the United States.
‘When you listen to what the leading candidate on the Republican side has been saying about building walls, about excluding Mexicans and a complete shutdown of all Muslims entering in, and if you actually look at what he specifically said in that now infamous speech about Muslims, he kept saying, “They only want jihad. They don’t believe in our way of life. They don’t respect our system,”’ she said.
Amal, who was born in Beirut and raised in London continued: ‘And when he says ‘they’ and you watch the media coverage afterwards, people, I think, should have been saying ‘Do you mean the 1.5 billion people around the world who fit that description? Do you mean the people who are U.S. citizens who are members of your military who are, the vast majority of whom are not violent or extremists in any way?’
She’s also added that she is ‘perplexed’ that his comments haven’t dampened his popularity within the party.
Speaking of the outrageously sexist comments Trump has made, Amal said: ‘There’s an ad on the TV in the U.S. where they went through all these statements he’s made against women and you watch that and you think “Gosh.”
‘He has a really high negative rating.
