President Trump has named Charles M. Kupperman the acting national security adviser Tuesday after John Bolton’s ouster. Kupperman served on the board of directors for the Center for Security Policy founded by Frank Gaffney, Jr., from 2001 through 2010.
SPLC Muslim Brotherhood-linked front group, CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations), said in a statement Tuesday it is “appalled” by Kupperman’s appointment…just as it did on Jan. 21, 2019, when CAIR demanded that Trump revoke the appointment of Charles Kupperman as Deputy National Security Advisor because of what CAIR calls his “anti-Muslim” ties.
Kupperman brings to the roll more than 4 decades of national security policy and program experience. Her served in the Reagan Administration, holding positions in the Executive Office of the President, NASA, and the President’s Gerneal Advisory Committee on Arms Control and Disarmament. H also worked as a Defense and Foreign Policy Advisor to the Reagan campaign.
“Center for SecurityPolicy has continuously promoted ‘Islamophobic’ conspiracy theories, and anyone, like Mr. Kupperman, who has so closely associated with them for so long is – at the very least – complicit in their brand of anti-Muslim bigotry and should not be entrusted with one of the highest ranking security roles in the United States,” CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said.
Kupperman was a staunch critic of former President Obama’s decision to pursue a nuclear deal with Iran and called on him to revoke the agreement.
In calling on the Trump administration to revoke Kupperman’s appointment, the Hamas-affiliated Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) whines that “once again this is an example of Trump elevating foxes into the hen house, where Islamophobes are well placed to direct our nation’s national security priorities,” Robert McCaw, director of CAIR’s government affairs department, told Al-jazeera.
McCaw argued that Kupperman’s appointment “should absolutely be rescinded” and that he “has no place in the US government.”
Trump tweeted Tuesday that he would be naming a new national security adviser next week. (Presidents appoint the adviser, and the position does not need Senate confirmation.)
