Chelsea Clinton attends Muslim solidarity rally in NYC as Trump's revised t
By Jennifer Calfas
Chelsea Clinton attended an anti-Trump rally in New York City on Sunday to show solidarity with the Muslim community
Clinton, the daughter of President Trump's Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton, attended the rally in Times Square in New York City.
She wrote on Twitter that the event was the first protest for her daughter Charlotte, age 2.
"Thank you to all who organized #IAmMuslimToo today - Charlotte's 1st protest rally. #NoBanNoWallNoRaids," Clinton tweeted.
Hundreds of protesters gathered for the rally Sunday.
The event featured speakers including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio; mogul Russel Simmons, a former friend of Trump; actress Susan Sarandon; and several prominent activists.
"We are here today to show middle America our beautiful signs and, through our beautiful actions and intention, that they have been misled," Simmons told the crowd. "We are here unified because of Donald Trump. We want to thank him for bringing us together."
The rally comes after Trump signed an executive order temporarily barring visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. The order also puts a temporary halt on the acceptance of refugees and an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees. A federal judge issued a nationwide restraining order on the executive order while a lawsuit proceeds.
Trump's revised travel ban will still target same seven Muslim countries as previous order
WASHINGTON — A draft of President Donald Trump's revised immigration ban targets the same seven countries listed in his original executive order and exempts travelers who already have a visa to travel to the U.S., even if they haven't used it yet.
A senior administration official said the order, which Trump revised after federal courts held up his original immigration and refugee ban, will target only those same seven Muslim-majority countries — Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya.
The official said that green-card holders and dual citizens of the U.S. and any of those countries are exempt. The new draft also no longer directs authorities to single out — and reject — Syrian refugees when processing new visa applications.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the order before it's made public. The official noted that the draft is subject to change ahead of its signing, which Trump said could come sometime this week.
