Asra Normani, co-founder of the Muslim Reform Movement, argued Mr Trump's was right to implement a ban which stopped certain nationals from entering the country.
The President has insisted his “extreme vetting” policy will keep the country safe from terror. In response protests have taken place across the US with another scheduled to take place in London on Monday
However Muslim activist Ms Nomani, supported the President’s policy.
Speaking to Fox News, she said: “What I have witnessed and experienced first hand is extremism inside my Muslim community that has spilled blood from San Bernardino to Orlando.

“We have a crises, we are facing an ideological war of our generation. We need extreme solutions.
“I understand very deeply that there are human casualties, as the pendulum swings from the left to the right, there are human beings in the middle and we need to compassionate solutions but we also need pragmatic strategies.
“So this 30 days in which the Trump administration is going to be developing its counter extremism and its counter Isis strategy is so critical.
“I hope what they will do is fix some of these logistical nightmares that are merging with the executive order but also come up with a strategic plan that tackles ideology of extremism.”
Mr Trump has continued supporting his policy despite receiving criticism from a number of countries including Germany and France.

He argued: “My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months.
“The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror.”
Ms Normani added: “This is not a Muslim ban, this is a ban that is clearly identified to try to make this country’s borders safer.
“Immediately after the election of President Donald Trump what we have seen is a concentrated orchestrated effort to try to undermine the presidency as if we are all living on the set of the hunger games.”
