The leader of an organization widely identified as an anti-Muslim hate group visited the White House on Tuesday and described her visit as very productive.
Brigitte Gabriel, a Lebanese-American conservative, has written two books warning about the dangers of radical Islam. Act for America, the organization she founded, describes itself as the the NRA of national security and claims 500,000 members and 1,000 chapters across the country focused on advancing policies to protect America from terrorism.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, however, classifies Act for America as the largest grassroots anti-Muslim group in America.
Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, who was forced to resign over his communication with the Russian ambassador, has been on one of Acts board of advisers, according to the groups website.
