Noor bin Ladin, who grew up in Switzerland, has given her backing to the US President, saying she wears a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat in spite of critics who have branded her ‘stupid’
Noor bin Ladin, who spells her surname differently from her terrorist uncle said that “ISIS proliferated under the Obama/Biden administration, leading to them coming to Europe,”.
She explained her admiration for Donald Trump and why Americans are supposedly safer under his presidency and said “Trump has shown he protects America and us by extension from foreign threats by obliterating terrorists at the root and before they get a chance to strike.”
“I had been going to the states with my mom several times a year from the age of three onwards,” she said.
Bin Ladin went on to say she became a Trump supporter all the way back in 2015, when he announced his presidential bid.
“I have watched from afar and I admire this man’s resolve. He must be reelected,” she said. “… It’s vital for the future of not only America, but western civilization as a whole.”
‘You look at all the terrorist attacks that have happened in Europe over the past 19 years. They have completely shaken us to the core … [Radical Islam] has completely infiltrated our society,’ bin Ladin continued.
‘In the US it’s very worrying that the left has aligned itself completely with the people who share that ideology.’
She adds that she’s not afraid to show her support for Trump in Europe despite the reaction it gets.
According to the 2018 Gallup poll, only 18 percent of Swiss citizens approved of his job performance but that doesn’t stop her from wearing her MAGA hat to the grocery store.
‘I am minding my own business and this woman in her late 50s charges toward me and starts speaking very loudly and aggressively to me,’ she said of a recent confrontation at a store.
“My life would have been very different had I been raised in Saudi Arabia,” she said. “I really grew up with this deep appreciation for freedom and basic individual rights.”
Bin Ladin recalled how she played soccer in school for 13 years. “My mom would come to all the games and she would say when I see you play I know that all the hardship was worth it because you get to do what you choose and what you love.”
Noor was just 14 when her uncle perpetrated the deadliest attack on US soil in history. From the moment the second plane hit, she knew her life would never be the same.
“I was so devastated,” she recalled. “I had been going to the states with my mom several times a year from the age of three onwards. I considered the US my second home.”
Bin Ladin said part of the reason she rejected liberal assertions that America was a “racist country” was based on her own lived experience.
“I have not had a single bad experience with Americans despite the name that I carry. On the contrary, I was overwhelmed by their kindness and understanding,” bin Ladin said, adding she’s been back to the US a few times since the attacks. She hasn’t visited the memorial yet, but is planning to on it the next time she is in New York.
“I really want to go and pay my respects.”
