Six months ago, Muslim-American Saba Ahmed was protesting Donald Trump’s rhetoric; today she’s singing his praises and urging fellow Muslims to do the same. Ahmed, founder of the Republican Muslim Coalition, is making like an itinerant evangelist, preaching the gospel of the GOP.

As a result, NBC made her the subject of its video and podcast series, “The Trail Tapes,” which focuses on unusual presidential campaign stories.

Her support for Trump represents an about-face for her.

Ahmed appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” in November, wearing an American flag hijab and debated Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson after the GOP presidential front-runner said he’d “seriously consider” closing some mosques.

That statement was in response to the deadly, multi-targeted Paris attacks last year.

But she’s looking to the presumptive nominee with a sense of anticipation today.

She said that many Muslims turned to the Democratic Party after 9/11. “Instead of abandoning the Republican Party, the [Muslim] community should have educated and become more involved with the Republican Party.”

Of Trump, she said, “In the long term, I don’t think he will want to alienate our community.”

“This is the land of the free and the home of the brave, and we’re all proud Americans,” she concluded, before using Trump’s campaign slogan. “So hopefully we can make this country great again.”
