Following a very political month for YouTube, the Team Internet participants of the upcoming Republican debate has been announced. We covered the news that there would be participation form YouTubers, but now we can reveal that the creators taking part will be: Nabela Noor, host of ‘Soldier Knows Best’ Mark Watson, and Dulce Candy.
Of the three, it is the inclusion of Miss Noor that is sure to grab the most attention. Nabela recently released a much-applauded video entitled ‘Dear America’ in which she gave her perspective on what it’s like to be a Muslim-American in 2016. Sparks will almost certainly fly during her portion as Republican candidate and grumpy-cat lookalike Donald Trump previously made the highly controversial statement that he would ban all Muslims from entering the US. The statement was condemned worldwide and even lead to the British Parliament debating whether to ban Mr Trump from ever entering the UK.
That controversy might not come to pass though, as it emerged today that Mr Trump may be boycotting the debate due to a separate feud with Fox News. Regardless, the issue of the acceptance of Muslim-Americans will almost certainly loom large over the discussion.
The group being rounded-off by someone with military experience and a proudly Christian young woman should ensure that the creators able to cover a wide range of different topics and issues.
