Ibtihaj Muhammad, who will be the first American Muslim woman to compete in the games while wearing a hijab, was asked by CNN if Trump, the GOP presidential nominee, is dangerous.

“I think that his words are very dangerous,” she responded.

“When these types of comments are made, no one thinks about how they really affect people. I’m African-American, I don’t have another home to go to. My family was born here, I was born here,” Muhammad continued.

“It’s like, where do we go?” 

Muhammad, a member of the U.S. fencing team, will be competing in the women’s individual sabre and women’s team sabre in the Rio games this month. She ranks No. 2 in the U.S. and No. 8 in the world.
