If history is any indication, terrible things happen when a specific group is singled out or targeted based on their race or religion. Either President Trump hasn’t read a history book for some time now, or he has, and he’s pulling tips from it.

According to new reports from Reuters, the Trump administration plans to “revamp and rename a U.S. government program designed to counter all violent ideologies so that it focuses solely on Islamist extremism.”

Five individuals briefed on the matter told Reuters this would mean changing the “Countering Violent Extremism” (CVE) program to “Countering Islamic Extremism.”

The proposed change would likely allow white supremacists such as Dylann Roof off the hook for the their heinous crimes, all because our new commander-in-chief is a vile, racist human being with an obvious vendetta against Muslims.

Trump previously criticized President Obama for being “too weak” in the fight against ISIS, and apparently, this is how he plans to up his game: by singling out individuals of the Islamic faith and letting white supremacists off the hook.

Many Muslims are already hesitant to work with the Trump administration, and the change to the CVE would only make them more hesitant. Given the fact that President Trump signed an executive order barring travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, their fear of working with the government is completely warranted.

The program “revamp” is nothing new, however. According to Reuters, Trump’s transition team met with members of the CVE back in December when they initially proposed the change.

The director of policy for the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Hoda Hawa, told Reuters that singling out individuals of the Islamic faith “is concerning for us because they [the Trump administration] are targeting a faith group and casting it under a net of suspicion.”

However, the public won’t be duped. Many have already taken to Twitter to call President Trump out for yet another shockingly disgusting move:
