NEW YORK – Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan has urged the US President to undertake a visit to Turkey and see for himself the worsening situation of refugees who had fled from the war in their countries, in reaction to his executive order banning immigrants and refugees.
“I want to try to get the word out to Donald Trump bring him over there [to the refugee camps in Turkey] have him see all the positive things they are doing over there and all America can do to help as well,” Lohan said during a Facebook Live session, The News reported on Monday, February 13.
Last month, the actress deleted all the photos on her official Instagram page, leaving only a bio which read “Alaikum Salam,” which made many fans speculate that Lohan has become Muslim.
Many fans welcomed Lohan’s claimed conversion to Islam, which came a year after she was first pictured while holding a Qur’an.
Yet, in the interview, she denied rumors that she was reverting to Islam, referring to Islam as a ‘beautiful’ religion.
“I’ve studied the Qur’an for quite some time. It’s a process to convert to anything. I respect all religions… it’s a beautiful religion and I am a very spiritual person… it’s something I’ve been studying,” she said.
“You can’t just convert overnight to a religion,” she added.
She added that she felt scared to return to the US after Trump signed executive orders to ban immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
“I was scared to come here with everything going on because of my personal beliefs,” she added.
