Adam Warshauer, 37, from Delray Beach, FL, whose father is Jewish and mother is a Christian, became a Sufi Muslim after being introduced to the faith by a man he met at 22.

“People pull stuff they want to go “Oh, my God!” about, but come on, forget about that and just focus on what's real,” which Warshauer says is Trump’s job creation capability and his focus on stopping the drug epidemic in America, heroin specifically. He adds that Trump is more approachable than other Republican candidates like Ted
