Trump fans are fuming at the president's signature Florida resort after Mar-a-Lago canceled an anti-Muslim group's fundraiser starring conservative columnist Michelle Malkin.

Mar-a-Lago had been set to host a Nov. 7 cocktail reception and dinner for anti-Muslim group ACT for America, which has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Malkin was the keynote speaker at the event, with tickets starting at $1,500.

By Sunday, though, the Trump Organization had canceled the event—apparently in the face of coverage connecting Mar-a-Lago to the anti-Muslim statements made by ACT for America and its founder, Brigitte Gabriel, who claimed in 2007 that practicing Muslims "cannot be loyal citizens of the United States."
