David L. Phillips, Director of the Program on Peace-building and Rights, writes in the Huffington Post that Trump’s thinly veiled racist and Islmaphobic policies will intensify radicalization, inviting attacks against the United States, and undermining the campaign against the Islamic State.

Phillips argues that Trump's executive action will be used as an ISIS recruiting tool, that it tarnishes the US reputation abroad, and betrays Iraqis who put their lives on the line to assist the United States.
