Where did Sam Harris say he would vote for a Muslim over Trump?

I mistakenly created this topic over the “Politics and Organizational Issues” subsection, and nobody has responded, so I thought I would try it here where it’s more relevant.

I read the quote (see below) on the main page of Sam Harris’s blog many months ago (perhaps even late last year).

I’d like the exact quote and the source to be able to link to it.

I can only paraphrase it roughly now:

“There are many fine Muslims like Maajid Nawaz who would make much better Presidents of the USA than Donald Trump”

Thanks to anyone who can help me with this…

He said he’d vote for a completely random person off the street rather than Trump, and a Hillary in a coma rather than Trump.  The point is: Trump is not fit for the role.

Ola, he may have said that as well, but I clearly remember he also said there are many fine Muslims, such as Maajid, for whom he would vote rather than Trump.  That’s the quote I’m seeking in its verbatim form, and where it came from.

Why?

Ammunition for Character Assassination,  I presume.

Hmm, yeah, something like that, I reckon.

Incidentally, there are many fine muslims I’d vote for in preference to Trump, if that’s any use to you.
