She went on to say that she was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian and "found out later my family was Jewish".

"Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me. I stand ready to register as Muslim in solidarity", Madeleine Albright tweeted, APA reports.

Mr. Trump's argument, as stated on the campaign trail prior to his Election Day victory, is that not all refugees from unsafe regions want liberty as laid out by the Declaration of Independence and codified into law by the U.S. Constitution.

And now, former Secretary of State Albright is saying that she is prepared to register as Muslim if that happens.

During his presidential campaign, Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims coming into the United States and said he would "absolutely" require Muslims in the USA to register in a database.

But Albright - who moved to the USA when she was 11 - isn't having any of it. On Monday, Trump moved to pull the USA out of the 12-nation Pacific Rim agreement, which he said would be damaging for American workers.

News is now circulating that President Trump plans to take executive action against the admission of immigrants to the USA, especially refugees and migrants from Syria, Yemen, Iraq and four other predominantly Muslim countries.

It remains unclear how Albright would register as Muslim. During the presidential campaign, he also floated the idea of registering American Muslims in a database.

In a tweet Tuesday, Trump said: "Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow".

In an interview with the Washington Post in 1997, Albright said her parents, who converted to Catholicism, never talked about their Jewish background.
