    Trump’s former deputy national security advisor who has used anti-Muslim rhetoric

    K.T. McFarland is a national security analyst who regularly laments political correctness in American institutions. During her tenure as an analyst, McFarland has publicly appeared with staunch anti-Muslim figures and has been ultra-critical of Islam.

    • McFarland is a former Fox News Security Analyst who has claimed that “radical Islam [is] exploding” around the world.
    • McFarland has lamented that the terrorist watch list is too big and argued that law enforcement should only be focusing on a certain group of individuals, presumably Muslims. “I think political correctness has taken a front seat to American security,” she said during an interview with Fox News. “And political correctness of treating 350 million Americans the same way, let’s just zero in on the very tiny percentage who have behavior patterns that are suspicious and look like terrorist pattern and focus like a lazer on them.”
    • McFarland sat on a 2014 panel alongside anti-Muslim figures Brigitte Gabriel, Pamela Geller, Jamie Glazov, and Andrew Bostom. The event was hosted by Sean Hannity and titled “Radical Muslims On The March.”
