US working to designate Muslim Brotherhood a terror group

The White House said on Tuesday, the Trump administration is working to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization. The move would bring sanctions against Egypt’s oldest Islamist movement, and comes after the Egyptian president asked Trump to make the designation in a private meeting during a visit to Washington on April 9.

Not a popular opinion, but we need to be careful who we designate a terrorist group. It can't just be a group we don't like. For us it has to be a group that utilizes violence against common American citizens as a tactic. Not because I want to defend the Muslim Brotherhood, but because I fear what other groups could be added in the future.
