Madeleine Albright is a Czech immigrant, she is the first woman to ever be Secretary of State and she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom under Barack Obama.

She is now also willing to be a Muslim, if Trump takes his #MuslimBan further, implementing his notorious Muslim registry and limiting travel into America any further.

She explained in a tweet her own feelings of being identity-fluid, pledging to stand in solidarity with American Muslims who are being treated like criminals.

As Albright explained, her perception of America is that it is a land which stands for freedom of religion, amongst other things.

The actress Mayim Bialik from the Big Bang Theory joined the formidable Albright in her pledge.

She also explained who she saw as more of a threat to American freedom.

During Trump's campaign he suggested he would order a complete shutdown on Muslims emigrating to the US.

Trump has already proceeded with a hugely contentious ban of people from seven different nationalities from entering the USA, provoking lawyers across America to convene at airports volunteering to fight immigration cases and hundreds of people to show up and protest.

It is part of a planned suspension of all visas for people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria or Yemen for at least 30 days. All predominantly Muslim countries.

The actions follow Trump's orders from last Wednesday, tightening immigration policies, including taking steps toward building a wall on the Mexican border.'

Madeleine is confident that banning and thus potentially demonising immigrants and refugees is not the answer.
