A leading Muslim activist has said that the new president of America will "send a wake-up call" on diversity. 

Yesterday, Donald Trump was voted in as the new president-elect of the United States. His 100 day plan has already been released, and Trump plans to make good on his promise to introduce extreme vetting of Muslims entering the country. 

Ishmael Lea South, the director of The Salaam Project group which provides support and legal advice for Muslims, expressed his concern as "a British Muslim with family relations in America", but said that "the positive side of Donald Trump coming to power is that it will send people a wake-up call."
