Muslim Americans and Trump supporters sit down for dinner

Fusion correspondent Dan Lieberman gathered a group of guests that’s rarely seen together. For the latest installment of a series dubbed “Breaking Bread,” in which people on either side of a divisive issue come together, three Muslim-Americans from San Bernardino County sat down at a dinner table with a diverse group of Trump supporters.

Among the Muslim-American guests attending the dinner was Malek Bendelhoum, who went to college with Syed Rizwan Farook, the man authorities say carried out the San Bernardino mass shooting in December. Bendelhoum said Farook also prayed at the same mosque he visits but noted they were not close friends.

Also invited to the dinner was Shirley Husar, one of an estimated 18 African American delegates supporting Trump at the Republican National Convention.
