KASSEM EID: I woke up for some reason, I couldn’t sleep. I woke up. I saw a lot of texts on my phone. I saw the news. I cried out of joy. I thanked god. I don’t know. I was overwhelmed. We’ve been asking for protection. We’ve been asking for consequences for more than six years I cried out of joy. I thanked god. I don’t know. I was overwhelmed. We’ve been asking for protection. We’ve been asking for consequences for more than six years and today for the first time it happened, for the very first time we see Assad held accountable just for once, held accountable for his crimes against humanity. I was overwhelmed. I felt grateful for President Trump. I felt grateful for the United States. I felt grateful for each and every person who lobbied and kept on talking until someone actually listened. I felt very, very grateful.
BALDWIN: There are people in America and I hear you supportive of President Trump and so many people are, Democrats and Republicans, but there are also people over here in America saying all right, clearly President Trump is motivated as we all have compassion for these just horrible images of, you know, these babies who were killed, but at the same time this is a man who, you know, doesn’t want Syrians to come into this country with this refugee ban. Let me just play some sound. Hillary Clinton weighed in.
HILLARY CLINTON: We cannot in one breath speak of protecting Syrian babies and in the next close America’s doors to them.
BALDWIN: Quickly, Kassem, how do you see that?
EID: With all due respect, with all due respect, I didn’t see each and every person who was demonstrating after the travel ban. I didn’t see you three days ago when people were gassed to death, when civilians were gassed to death. I didn’t see you in 2013 when 1,400 people were gassed to death. I didn’t see you raising your voice against President Obama’s inaction in Syria that led us refugees, that made us refugees get kicked out of Syria. If you really care about refugees, if you really care about helping us, please, help us stay in our in our country.
EID: We don’t want to come to United States. We want to stay in our country, with all due respect. This is hypocrisy. If you really care, if you really care, help us stay in our country. We don’t want to become refugees. We want to stay in our country. Help us establish safe zones.
