Without having in depth knowledge of Islam you cannot say anything about Islam.
If you study Quran in depth, you'll once shiver with fear.

Is there any Muslim in the government of USA?

It is very natural if you take it microscopically. I like Iran and China as
countries. It's natural that I would like anybody belonging to these countries.
But in long time scenario, I'll take care of the person's personal character and
my personal relation with him/her on his personal character.
I don't like USA. Naturally I'll hesitate from any American. But his/her
personal character will persuade me to like him/her.
