Abstract: Several members of the Donald Trump administration have voiced their concerns about the Muslim Brotherhood and its alleged links to violent jihadi organizations. For a period at the beginning of the Trump presidency, in January 2017, speculation abounded about the impending introduction of either a congressional bill or an executive order proclaiming the Brotherhood a terrorist organization. While neither of these was enacted, with renewed concern about the Muslim Brotherhood in light of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) crisis and the resulting realignment of regional allies, as well as a new National Security Advisor, the Trump administration may change its approach in order to strengthen its alliances with Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Such a move would have effects on domestic politics, as well as a considerable impact on regional relationships.
