President Donald Trump told CPAC attendees Friday that “We are going to keep radical Islamic Terrorists the hell out of our country.” Dr. Mohamed Zuhdi Jasser, an American Muslim with Syrian refugee parents, thinks his ideas may be able to help. CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, is an annual gathering for activists and elected officials to exchange conservative ideas and policy initiatives. Jasser, in his fourth year attending CPAC, spoke at the conference on the war against jihadists and terrorist ideology.  He speaks with Soledad O’Brien about his support for the Trump administration travel bans and how he thinks Muslims can bring together their Muslim and American identities under the conservative tent.
